What’s the difference between a wellness visit and a physical therapy visit? Good question! Both may include manual therapy techniques, exercise prescription, and some of the services described above. It’s the reasoning behind the treatment session that differentiates the two. A physical therapy session will help to return you to a prior level of function after suffering from an injury, pain, or illness. Wellness promotes or maintains physical fitness and mobility and will likely improve your performance. A wellness visit is like a “tune-up” or getting your oil changed. You go to the dentist every year to stay a step ahead of dental problems. Why not do the same with your physical therapist?
1. Injury Risk Screen
Revitalize and align your body with an injury prevention screen. Our physical therapist has worked with youth athletes of all sports and is knowledgable and experienced in performing sport-specific assessments to keep your body healthy and resilient. You can expect an assessment of strength, endurance, flexibility, mobility, balance, proprioception, neuromuscular control, and sport-specific movement patterns. After your assessment, you will receive education of the findings and a plan to implement in order to decrease your risk of injury. You can choose to continue with follow up appointments, or continue a program at home on your own.
2. Return to sport/run progressions
Have you graduated from a rehab program, but are unsure how to safely return to your sport? During return to sport sessions, you and your physical therapist will develop an evidence-based progression of sport-related activity to get you back to your pre-injury level of competition. Your physical therapist will discuss options for services during this call.
3. Individualized warm up
A good warm up can reduce your risk of injury during performance or practice. After an initial consultation, MBody You will develop custom warm up for you to perform before your sport.
4. Performance enhancement for the growing athlete
Although youth athletics is growing increasingly competitive, youth athletes ARE NOT adults and should not be treated as such. They can safely work under load and practice resistance training; however, they experience a unique set of problems and injuries. During growth spurts, children experience changes in balance, body awareness, strength, flexibility, power, and more. You will leave this consult with a report on your child's strengths and areas to improve upon, as well as an initial exercise program to address their current deficits. Follow-up programs can be purchased to walk through the growing years with you, and to provide you with the most up-to-date, appropriate exercises for your child to success and improve their athletic performance.
5. Dance Performance Coaching
There are many factors that contribute to dance injuries. To name a few, nutrition, hydration, sleep, stress, and load management must all be addressed in order for you (or your child) to achieve their best performance. During an initial consult, we review your goals, critiques, and choreography before a series of mobility, flexibility, strength, endurance, motor control, and dance skills are assessed. You will leave the consult with your assessment and a plan moving forward. Hybrid coaching programs that include exercise programs, education, support, and accountability can be purchased as a follow up.
