Many physical therapists call themselves sports medicine specialists because they like to work with athletes. It is fun to go to a gym-like setting and be treated with lots of other athletes. But the crucial test is whether you are getting a specific musculoskeletal assessment that looks at YOUR particular imbalances.
Whether you have recurring hamstring, rotator cuff, back, ankle, neck (substitute your own particular area) strains or this is your first bout of pain or strain, make sure you are getting a thorough assessment and a specifically tailored program to correct YOUR particular musculoskeletal imbalances – because everyone who has pain, has imbalances.
Our goal is to not only return you to your favorite exercise but to help you be better at the performance of that exercise without the potential for strain that existed before your injury.
Back To Life specializes in the restoration of function and return to sport from injuries to the muscles and joints of the neck, shoulder, back, hip, and pelvis.
“Several weeks after qualifying for the Ironman World Championship in Kona, HI, I began to experience intense lower back pain that prevented me from swimming, biking and running. I was crushed, the big race was two months away and my dreams of racing in Kona seemed impossible. After being referred to Amy by a friend, she discovered the problem and put me on an exercise program to correct the muscle imbalances that caused my back pain. Within two to three weeks, I was back training again. More importantly, I was able to put together one of my best Ironman races!”
