Whether you are an athlete, a weekend-warrior, or a fairly active person, performance is everything. An athlete’s goal is to improve their performance while reducing their chance of injury. Sports medicine physicians and other specialists in this field offer a variety of programs for performance enhancement and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle, to help athletes and active people achieve their goals.
Sports medicine is backed by a variety of studies on the mechanism and prevention of, as well as recovery from, musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses. Sports performance is more than just strength training and exercise. It is a comprehensive approach to improve overall health and wellness, and aims to prevent injury, so that a person can get back to doing what they love as soon as possible.
For athletes seeking to improve their sports performance, Orthopaedic Associates offers a comprehensive care with a program to enhance their core athletic abilities, such as speed, agility, power, strength, flexibility, and coordination. Whether you are ready to get back in the game after a prior injury or want to take your skills to the next level, we have a program for you.
Our Sports Performance training programs are focused on three goals:
- Injury Prevention: The main focus of our sports performance programs is to condition an athlete to use exercises for balance, stability, movement, agility, and flexibility. Preventing injury is also of upmost importance to improve overall performance.
- Performance Enhancement: Enhance your performance, skill, and agility all in one, which in return will help improve your overall health and wellness. From optimal stretching technique to strength and endurance training, performance enhancement can bring out the best in you.
- Patient Education: To foster motivation and the self-esteem necessary for success, we don’t just make you breathe and sweat hard. We educate you on why we train the way we do, connecting the training methods to the results you will see on the field and in your game.
The third goal, patient education, will tend to wrap everything up together. Knowing your skills and limitations, along with proper techniques for stretching and exercising, will help you not only avoid injury, but also provide a solid base to keep building the best version of you.
Imagine playing your sport without pain, with a reduced risk of injury, and skills that push all of your natural talent beyond your greatest expectations. Call Orthopaedic Associates at (440) 892-1440 to request an appointment with our sports medicine specialists.
