At TPA we pride ourselves on making athletes…better athletes. Our mission is evident in everything we do including when we train athletes in the weight room. Our individualized programs are appropriate for all athletes, ranging from Middle School to the professional level. We progress our athletes accordingly based on their athletic needs, training age, and weight room abilities. We also put a premium on functional movement and core strength in each of our programs.
In season programs are also constructed for athletes to ensure their bodies stay ready for competition year round. Every exercise, set, and rep performed at TPA has a purpose. That purpose is to improve the performance of our athletes and to also decrease their potential risk for injury. We achieve this goal by enhancing mobility, strength, power, and muscle mass.
Every athlete is concerned about injury and the potential consequences of that injury. It doesn’t mean you can’t return to an active lifestyle. Following comprehensive and effective reconditioning and with doctor approval, you can once again return to those sports that you love.
TPA’s Return-to-Sport Program provides athletes, who may still be in physical therapy or recovering from an injury, a healthy transition back to the game while focusing on correct form and minimizing the risk of re-injury. Our goal is to guide all athletes back to the playing field with the appropriate strength, speed and power that they had before their injury.
TPA’s sports specialists work with the athlete’s physical therapists, athletic trainers and surgeons to best understand each athlete’s unique situation. This interaction between TPA and the clinicians enables the TPA specialist to best design and prescribe specific strength and conditioning programs. Additionally each athlete’s fitness, nutrition, training maturity, physical and mental development are assessed in order to best design an individualized program to re-strengthen and recondition the athlete.
The Return-to-Sport Program may consist of the following sub-programs:
