Summer Intensive for Athletes. Summer is the best time for your student athlete (middle and high school and college) to prepare for fall sports. A physical therapy assessment illuminates any vulnerabilities that may contribute to injuries. Also, an individual, specialized program to prevent injuries and maximize performance can ensure your student-athlete is strong and ready when practice and competition resume this fall.
Why is a physical therapy and movement assessment important?
- Prevent overuse or misuse injuries. These are the most common types of injuries in young people! We all have hidden muscle imbalances, even kids.
- Recover more quickly from traumatic injuries such as a torn muscle or ligament, sprains and strains, broken bones.
- ADDED BONUS: your teen athlete can also learn mind-body skills to enhance both physical performance and mental readiness for competition
Summer Intensive for Performing Artists. Summer is the best time for a young performer (middle and high school and college) to prepare for increased practice and performance time that begins in the fall. Movement and postural habits begin with the very first music, dance and vocal lessons, and unknowingly can interfere with their health and well-being in subtle ways.
Research suggests that Alexander Technique lessons can help young performing artists:
- Prevent overuse injuries
- Enhance their performance and stage presence
- Mindfulness techniques to reduce performance stress
