We also have an extensive prevention program so we can help minimize your injury if you do get one.
Our goal is simple: We want you to be on the field-of-play. Whether that’s making a varsity team, starting for that team, participating in your first triathlon, or signing your next big free-agent contract, we focus on injury prevention because we want you to win your challenge.
The foundation of this strategy is keeping you injury-free. We are experts in teaching fundamental movements and positions that will decrease your risk of injury. We have worked with athletes ranging from 5 year old softball players, to high school athletes hoping to make their varsity team, to Olympic medalists.
First, we make sure it’s clear that movement mechanics are clean and a patient has shown readiness to begin resistance training. Then we will use the most research-backed, safe, and effective means to build strength and force development capacity.
We measure everything. We will show your baseline measurements in the most important athletic attributes in your sport and then we will work with you to make objective gains in these attributes. Because of this attention to detail and individualization of each plan, we work on a 1 to 1 basis or in very small groups.
Your plan will be individualized based on an athletic assessment and identification of goals. We a result, we can help you see gains in:

High-level endurance athletes often suffer from delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). This is a result of a buildup of toxins and a breakdown of muscle tissue. Even more frustrating are overuse injuries. These have the potential to be eliminated or decreased with simple recovery tools and proper training.
PRO Physical Therapy’s sports recovery tools include:
In addition to access to PRO Physical Therapy’s recovery tools, some membership levels gain access to manual therapy from our Physical Therapist team. Above all, athletes can receive services such as dry needling and instrument assisted soft tissue massage (IASTM). These can help athletes recover from a contest or a particularly intense training session.
At PRO Physical Therapy, we are experts in surgical rehab/post-orthopedic care. We work with many surgeons in the area because we want to give the patient the best outcome possible. We work with many Orthopedic Surgeons, so we are used to working with different surgical guidelines.
A patient’s ability to regain motion and strength and ultimately return to their daily activities depends on physical therapy. The body will not regain normal motion without specific retraining, therefore, physical therapists are specifically trained to restore range of motion and strength without compensation. We are focused on preventing re-injury during the recovery process. The therapist can also provide the patient with specific guidelines to allow optimal healing.
The road to recovery doesn’t have to wait until after surgery. In fact, two aspects of the surgical experience critical to achieving a successful recovery are pre/post-operative rehabilitation.
Most of us are familiar with a comprehensive post-operative rehabilitation program. These are generally designed to promote healing, reduce pain and swelling, restore joint mobility, flexibility and strength. However, many of us are not aware of the benefits of a structured pre-operative or “pre-habilitation” program.
This is a program designed by your physical therapists to help you prior to surgery so that you can have a great outcome after surgery.
The PROs will help you:
Physical therapy can start anywhere from a few hours to a few days after surgery. In some cases, there may be a period of immobilization following surgery. Please ask your surgeon when they want you to start physical therapy.
Therapy is often divided into distinct phases. The first comes immediately after surgery when the body part may be immobilized while the pain and swelling subside. Next comes a series of progressively challenging exercises to restore range of motion, stability, and strength. The final goal is to return the patient to a pre-injury activity level.
Post-operative treatments may specifically include:
The general concept of good posture refers to “the carriage of the body as a whole, the attitude of the body, or the position of the arms and legs”. It is the position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while standing, sitting or lying down. Good posture depends on the position that is attained when the joints are not bent or twisted and the spine is aligned. Maintaining good posture involves training your body to move and function where the least strain is placed on bones, joints and soft tissues.
Optimizes breathing and circulation
maintains the bones and joints in the correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly and efficiently.

It is estimated that around 75% of the people in America has experienced signs or symptoms of Temporal Mandibular Disorder (TMD or TMJ Disorder) and Craniofacial Pain (CFP). Often, most of these symptoms are temporary and can disappear over time. As a result, roughly 5-10% of the population will require professional treatment. Both TMD and CFP generally involve more than just one symptom and often have more than one cause. Pain can arise suddenly or progress over months to years with irregular occurrence and intensity.
Unfortunately there is no quick fix for TMD, CFP, and TMJ Disorder. However, most patients suffering from these conditions can achieve long-term relief with conservative therapy. According to researching, over 50% of patients suffering from TMD have few or no more symptoms following conservative management practices.
