Nothing ruins a team, an athlete’s season, or an individual’s fitness program faster than an injury. At Body One, we believe that advances in sports medicine have given us the ability to understand injury prediction and implement testing programs that can identify an individual’s risk of injury before an injury occurs.
Body One Physical Therapy’s Performance Ability Testing (PAT) utilizes a combination of functional movement and dynamic balance testing with previous injury history to identify movement limitations or irregularities, abnormal balance patterns, and areas in which notable strength deficits are present. Combining this data assists us in the prediction of potential injury areas, and allows for the development of highly specialized training techniques that specifically address the identified deficits.
This valuable testing process has armed therapists, trainers, and coaches with the proper guidance for developing prevention strategies that will keep the athlete healthy, maximize their athletic abilities, and keep their season alive.
