What is OrthoVirginia Sports Performance?
OrthoVirginia Sports Performance is your individualized training program to restore strength, stability and/or power OR enhance your current performance. Each client begins with an initial assessment to determine your individual needs, whether it is strength, flexibility, speed or power. We then design a program specific to you and your sport. This program is appropriate for all ages and all levels of sport participation.
As part of OrthoVirginia's Sports Medicine Program, OrthoVirginia Sports Performance is supported by fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists if you need them.
How does the program work?
OrthoVirginia Sports Performance begins with a 60-minute analysis with a board-certified physical therapist in orthopedics and/or sports. This session will assess strength, flexibility, stability, power and movement analysis. It will include video evaluation to assess your current level of performance. Based on these findings, an individualized evaluation summary will recommend the right training protocol for you.
We will match you with one of our program’s highly qualified trainers. All trainers are Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists or Certified Personal Trainers—the best in the business. We offer private or small group sessions. You and your trainer and determine which pricing package fits your needs.
Who can benefit from this program?
OrthoVirginia Sports Performance benefits athletes of all ages and abilities—from recreational to professionally competitive. It is designed for anyone who is returning from injury or anyone seeking to enhance their performance through a medically designed program.
- Team sports (soccer, basketball, football, baseball, lacrosse, field hockey, ice hockey, etc.): we offer programs to address speed and agility, power, coordination and control.
- Runners: we offer running analysis and corrective training to improve mechanics, improve speed and endurance and reduce risk for injury.
- Performing arts athletes (figure skaters, dancers, gymnasts, etc.): we offer evaluations to specifically address flexibility, posture and body control, balance and coordination to improve overall performance and reduce risk for injury.
How is OrthoVirginia Sports Performance different from physical therapy?
OrthoVirginia Sports Performance is designed to bridge the gap from performing activities of daily living such as walking and going up and down the stairs to full and safe return to sport. We enhance the results of your orthopedic and physical therapy care by guiding you through fitness protocols to complete your recovery from injury. Without quality post-rehabilitation training to integrate full body strength, flexibility and coordination, you're not fully preparing yourself to get back to regular physical activity.
