Whatever your sport, whatever your skill level – student, weekend warrior, competitive professional – AMPT can develop a program specifically for you, your sport and your
unique physical needs to improve your performance and resolve your injury.
We do this through a thorough examination of you and analyzing the specific demands of your sport. We improve your performance by identifying and correcting:
Every athlete is unique. That’s why we don’t recommend outdated methodologies or ineffective treatment. Instead, we develop and implement a program that works just for you. Your manual therapist will utilize many of the techniques available to conventional therapists but combine them with advanced techniques. We identify the best manual therapy, stretching, strengthening, core stability and neuromuscular control techniques specific for your needs.
Our goal is to help you become the best you can be at your sport. Athletes of every level benefit from our unique approach to training and injury recovery.
Early physical therapy intervention can also lead to quicker return to your sport after an injury. The sooner an injury is treated, the quicker it generally heals and the sooner you get back to what you love - your sport! There is a wealth of evidence to support this which our therapists will be more than happy to discuss with you.
Skilled manual physical therapy evaluation can detect injured tissues, muscle weakness and flexibility issues. We use our advanced “hands-on” manual therapy techniques to help heal the injured tissue and prescribe specific stretching and strengthening exercises to correct the imbalances. This approach improves performance and reduces the likelihood of recurrences.
Conventional therapies generally address only the symptoms, but our specialized Australian manual techniques address the whole person while still focusing on the cause and other predisposing factors. The result is a quicker return to your sport and better performance.
We communicate with coaches and trainers to inform them of what we are doing during each athlete’s rehabilitation program. They need information about what the injury is and how best to deal with it when the athlete is training or competing.
It is very important that the appropriate dosage of strength and stretching exercises are performed when training and warming up. This allows the tissues to progressively adapt, without being overloaded. We inform your coach or trainer how to best get you back to optimal performance and prevent re-injury in the safest possible way.
The ultimate goal is to reduce or eliminate all pain sources and contributing factors to get the injured tissues back to optimal health so that you can return to your favorite sport in the shortest possible time. There is a wealth of evidence-based research that demonstrates the effectiveness of our manual techniques. Our mission is to help people perform at their best possible level. We want you to move without pain and get stronger so you can perform better and avoid future injuries. So what would you like to do again without pain? Play tennis or golf? Enjoy a hobby? Or simply get back to living life?
