PFP 360 ATHLETIC TRAINING
Our philosophy is that better athletes make better players! PFP 360 Athletic Training utilizes a systematic approach of screening, evaluation and program development that aims to assess and clean up faulty movement patterns. Deficits or asymmetries in strength and mobility can lead to movement dysfunction, which has a negative effect on performance and may ultimately result in injury. Our Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists use the concept of Prehab, which is a proactive approach to address these deficits and asymmetries with the goal of minimizing the athlete’s risk for injury while enhancing softball performance. We believe that a safe and challenging training program is the key to achieving maximum output with each pitch, throw, swing, catch and sprint. We have developed a HOLISTIC multidisciplinary approach utilizing Athletic Trainers, Coaches, and Physical Therapists to help each player unleash her WHOLE 360 DEGREE potential!

Non-Injury Movement Assessments:
This is specifically for healthy athletes who are looking to identify areas of weakness and potential for injury. A comprehensive evaluation will be performed by a Physical Therapist or Athletic Trainer and the athlete will walk away with a full understanding of any limitations or mechanical breakdowns. She will be provided with a comprehensive home exercise program to work on independently. This is a minimum requirement for manual therapy sessions.
This is for the injured athlete who is experiencing pain or signs and symptoms of injury. A comprehensive evaluation of the injured body part will be performed by a Physical Therapist or Athletic Trainer and treatment (including necessary manual treatment) will be prescribed. The athlete will be given a comprehensive home exercise program to work on independently. If treatment is necessary beyond this evaluation, the athlete can either purchase a manual therapy package (listed below) or go to Matrix Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy (or any Physical Therapy clinic of your choice) for treatment to be billed through health insurance.
Manual Treatment Sessions (15 mins):
Includes, but not limited to, manual soft tissue work, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, stretching, joint mobilizations, ART (active release techniques) cupping and dry needling (dry needling requires an order from an MD). Manual therapy treatments will help address restrictions found in the athlete’s movement/injury assessment and will promote healing, quality movement patterns and decrease risk for future injury. Our skilled clinicians offer a hands-on approach to improving tissue quality through evidence-based techniques proven to help athletes recover faster and get the most out of their performance.
