Sports Performance Q & A

What is sports performance?

Your sports performance is how well you do in sports according to various parameters such as your strength, agility, flexibility, and speed. Your performance generally improves over time the more you train, but it can decline if you fall out of practice or sustain an injury. 

The Rehab Docs routinely help athletes optimize their sports performance using techniques designed to maximize potential and minimize risk for injuries. 

If you find yourself at a plateau in your sporting abilities, or if you simply would like to make sure you’re optimizing your time and getting the most out of training, The Rehab Docs can guide you through a training program designed with your specific sport, and your personal abilities, in mind. 

Who can benefit from sports performance services?

Sports performance services can benefit any athlete, from middle school level onward. Whether you enjoy playing a sport competitively or for leisure with your friends, services at The Rehab Docs work with your consistent practice to refine your skills. 

You may benefit from sports performance services specifically geared toward:

  • Baseball
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball

The Rehab Docs help you train in ways that optimize your performance without overworking you or putting you at risk for injuries. Alongside these services to improve your performance, they offer sports recovery services to help you bounce back after a major workout or competition. 

How can I improve my sports performance?

The Rehab Docs evaluate you during an initial consultation to identify specific problems that are holding you back or areas to target during your visits. Even if you don’t have any discernible injuries, you may have tight muscles, a low range of motion, or poor biomechanical practices that are keeping you from reaching your full potential.

Once The Rehab Docs identify specific ways to improve, they tailor your sports performance training plan to target areas that need improvement. They provide individual sport-specific training plans that focus on muscle groups and movements that you frequently use in the sport that you play. 


How you move is more important than simply moving often. Maximize your potential and limit future injury by building strength, power, and speed behind ideal movement patterns. Train smarter, not harder with experts in sport-specific functional biomechanics.

Your brain is in control, let’s train like it.


Unlock Your Full Potential

Do not cap your potential by compensating through the movements in your sport. Tight muscles, lack of range of motion, muscle strains, and overuse are a byproduct of using your body wrong during your sport. Tired of wasting your time stretching the tight muscle that won’t loosen up? Tight muscles are a good thing in a poor functioning system. Get to the source of your problem by changing the way your brain uses your muscles in your sport. This is the only way to truly maximize potential and limit future injury.




Our Goal

Each athlete has an ideal way to move and this must be perfected before power can be built behind this skill. In other words, power behind a perfect skill is what increases our level of performance, while power behind a flawed skill causes plateauing of performance. Additionally, building strength, speed, and reaction time is the goal of any performance program. But, the problem is that this can all be trained behind a poor movement pattern.


Injury Prevention

There is nothing more troubling than experiencing or witnessing someone you know experience an injury. As helpless as you may feel, injury prevention can help you recover and avoid future problems. What can be helped, however, are the events leading up to an injury. Injury prevention is one of Athletes by The Rehab Docs’ core values. We hate to see athletes plagued with injuries that are unnecessary. That is where we come in. We work with your specific body and identify utilization and motion deficits that can be corrected now. Changing the course of how your body moves over time is one of the most important aspects of injury prevention. Don’t wait to react to an injury after it occurs. Work with us today to identify the specific techniques that can set you up for athletic success. Lets retrain your brain!
