CrossFit is a high intensity, high velocity sport where pain may significantly affect performance or full participation in workouts and/or competitions. At Platinum Physical Therapy, we believe that providing onsite, sports-specific treatments for the specialty movements needed for success in CrossFit is essential to keeping athletes healthy. Pain is often the result of muscle imbalances between tight and weak muscle groups, poor coordination or body mechanics, and/or training errors that can be treated or prevented with guidance from a physical therapist working in tandem with your CrossFit coaches. Our therapist Julianne Rickert is a Doctor of Physical Therapy with over 10 years of personal experience lifting and coaching in both track & field and strength & conditioning, giving her a unique perspective on the loading demands needed for CrossFit. We offer formal insurance covered physical therapy treatment, free injury screening, and movement assessment to track your progress from as early as day one of your fitness journey.
Biomechanical Gait Analysis: At HPTSM the Alter-G treadmill is used to analyze walking and running gaits. This exclusive equipment allows for a full stride while enabling us to assess imbalances at various angles and speeds. With this information, corrections can be made with an individualized exercise prescription and recommendations for proper footwear and/or orthotics.
The Alter-G treadmill will be used to evaluate you through a series of walking and running trials. Footwear and orthotic recommendations will be provided, as well as personalized recommendations for improved technique. 45 mins, $99.
