Sports Performance and Movement Analysis

Exercise Rehabilitation

Exercise Rehabilitation aims to bring back full function following injury through restoring muscle strength, endurance, power, and improving flexibility. We achieve these results by carefully selecting and planning an exercise program to correct mechanical deficits that may predispose you to injury. Personalized programming that is unique to your injury is a vital part of the treatment experience, helping you recover faster, prevent re-injury and to develop the resilience to resume normal activity.

  • Benefits of Exercise Rehabilitation

  • Expedites recovery

  • Reduced pain

  • Restoring muscle strength, endurance and power

  • Improved flexibility

  • Enhanced proprioception and improved balance

  • Injury prevention

  • creating resilience and reducing chances of re-injury

Functional Movement Screen

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a screening tool used to evaluate seven fundamental movement patterns in individuals with no current pain complaint or musculoskeletal injury. The FMS is not intended to diagnose orthopedic problems but rather to demonstrate opportunities for improved movement in individuals.

The screen is designed to place an individual in extreme positions where movement deficits become noticeable if appropriate stability and mobility are not used. Even though individuals are performing an activity or sport at a high level; it has been observed that many of these same individuals are limited in fundamental movement patterns. The athlete that exhibits poor biomechanics oftentimes experiences limited gains in performance and a reduction in the body’s ability to remain adaptable and durable under the stress of training and competition. 

At its root, a functional movement screen (FMS) is used to identify asymmetries or deficiencies in an individual’s strength, flexibility, and general movement. The FMS aims to identify as many imbalances in mobility and stability as possible, using seven fundamental movement patterns. The seven movement patterns are designed to allow our practitioners to observe your performance of basic locomotor, manipulative, and stabilizing movements by placing you (the athlete) in extreme positions where your weaknesses and imbalances are most noticeable.

Once these deficiencies have been identified through the FMS, we can create a treatment plan and program of corrective exercises to eliminate deficiencies before they cause injury.

Titleist Performance Institute

TPI is the world's leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. Since its inception in 2003, TPI has studied thousands of golfers ranging from the top professional players to weekend enthusiasts.

Using this data, TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible. Additionally, TPI has analyzed how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury.

The best way to improve your game, prevent injury and continue to enjoy golf for many years, is to take a scientific approach to preparing your body for the physical requirements of the game. The TPI evaluation involves an assessment of swing mechanics, biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, and video swing analysis. Using this data we address any movement dysfunction by establishing a treatment plan and exercise program designed specifically for your needs with one goal in mind….eliminate physical limitations and improve your golf game.

A TPI Screen at Athlos consists of:

  • A 16-point physical screen, which is a comprehensive assessment of strength, mobility, and functional movement patterns specific to the golf swing

  • A video analysis that correlates your screen results, and how these findings affect your swing

  • A treatment plan and home exercise program to address any physical limitations identified

OnBaseU

OnBase University is an organization dedicated to studying how the body moves in the sports of Baseball and Softball and how to assess an athlete's physical ability to perform these movement patterns.

Comprised of leading experts in baseball and softball coaching, the fitness industry and the healthcare field, OnBase University has created a comprehensive movement screen that allows us to identify any physical limitations that may inhibit your athlete’s performance. Our goal is to match an athlete’s physical abilities to their technical skill to help them perform at the highest level. Using movement data paired with video analysis, we can determine what physical limitations may exist, how they influence performance and construct a treatment plan and home exercise program to address any limitations.

An OnBaseU screen at Athlos consists of:

  • A 12point physical screen, which is a comprehensive assessment of strength, mobility, and functional movement patterns specific to the sport of baseball

  • A video analysis that correlates your screen results, and how these findings affect your swing

  • A treatment plan and home exercise program to address any physical limitations identified
