Our services can include a clinical visit with a doctor and physical therapy, throwing motion analyses and debriefing, exercise prescription or a full comprehensive service for all of the services together.
We use a unique, client-driven approach that combines history gathering, kinetic chain review and assessment of environmental factors. Our goal is optimize throwing technique and prevent injury even among the most complex cases.
