There is an old saying that "You need to get into shape to play sports, not play sports to get into shape". We believe that there is a lot of wisdom in that statement. Without proper sports conditioning, sustaining a sports injury becomes more probable than possible. If you are considering actively participating in any type of sport, competitive or recreational, we encourage you to contact us today to learn about our sports conditioning programs.
At Northwest Physical Therapy, our sports conditioning professionals will have you complete some preliminary testing to determine your general fitness level, and then develop a sports conditioning program with exercises that provide improvements for areas that are of specific concern or important for your type of activity.
Cardiovascular training is almost a universal concern as this allows your body to reasonably avoid the over exertion that can cause cardiac arrest, shortness of breath, dizziness and fainting. In addition we can work with you to improve strength of joints subject to sprains, muscles subject to tears or pulls, and related physical training and conditioning.
