We focus on a team based approach to your care. Our physical therapists, trainers and performance specialists consult each other to ensure a fully integrated game plan for recovery. Our physical therapists, trainers and performance specialists have developed a combined elements approach to ensure that recovery and training work simultaneously to prevent re-aggravating the injury as well as making progress with strengthening the affected area. Ultimately our team approach enhances the outcome for the client.

Injury Prevention / Pre-surgical Care

As part of the recovery process and with our sports performance training, our clients will learn exercise to reduce the potential for future injury. Whether intended to strengthen a weakened area, improve mobility and stability and core, these exercises will decrease the risk for future injury.

Dynamic Warm Up (Click for Video)

In today’s world time is precious and with precious time comes sacrifices. When it comes to the fitness world sacrifices can be costly and typically the first thing to go is stretching. Stretching can be done before and after a workout and majority of the population fails to do both. One stretch or warm-up we preach here at Next Level is an active warm-up or Dynamic-Warm-up.  The goal of the Pre-exercise (Dynamic warm-up) should be to promote an increase in core body temperature and blood flow, to increase muscle tendon suppleness and to enhance free coordinated movements, which, in turn, help prepare the body for exercise (Herman and Smith 2008). A simple way to know the effectiveness is the individual is sweating. That alone shows the increase in core temperature. Dynamic warm-ups can be done a multitude of fashions. There are so many variations out in today’s fitness world. Our advice keep it simple, as stated above the biggest factor is increasing core body temperature and blood flow. To do this we typically start off with a large muscle group warm up such as bike ride, jog, elliptical; this ensures that body is going to get the rise in core temperature. After a simple major muscle exercise we move on to more specific exercises or sport specific. Majority of sport specific warm-ups are similar since we as humans move similar to one another but there are some differences from every sport.

Fall Injury Prevention

As fall sports kick off we start to see an increase in people coming in with injuries. One of the most common injuries we see is athletes that have torn their ACL and have surgery. This can be a devastating injury for a young athlete. However research shows that working on strength, proprioception (balance) and movement patterns can help reduce your risk for injury by altering compromising movements and positions. For more information about ACL injuries, including how they happen and who is more likely to sustain this injury, click on the link below. There is also a short video about some basic exercises athletes can perform to help reduce the risk of injury; however these only address one part of the picture. At Next Level Sports Performance and Physical Therapy, we would much rather prevent an injury through our sports performance training than treat an athlete who has already sustained a major injury. Our Sports Performance Specialists: Nick, Levi, and Cody are awesome at providing one on one sports performance training for athletes of any age and focus on exercises and movements that can help prevent many types of injuries. So come on by and stay healthy through the fall season!   ACL injury information Injury Prevention Exercises Video...
