We provide quality, comprehensive treatment for patients who are injured or suffering from any type of movement or function disorder.
As a key member of today’s dynamic health care team, we prescribe a goal-oriented athlete training program starting with an evaluation, comprehensive training plan, and injury prevention for our patient’s specific needs.
Athlete Training includes but is not limited to:
Vertical Jump Training
Our speed program focuses on two outcomes: explosive acceleration, and a fast max speed. Sprint technique and leg power are the big drivers of speed, so our programs focus on enhancing both to maximize speed.
Athletes in our program learn what to do with their arms, hands, hips, feet, and chest in order to run their fastest.
Vertical Jump Training:
To improve your jump height as fast as possible without wasting time and effort, there are two undeniable truths:
1. Every person is unique and training works best when tailored to you as an individual. Cookie-cutter programs don’t cut it.
2. Not all exercise is created equal. You have to pick the right exercises, with the right weights, in the right order for your body.
We know training works best when customized for each individual.
In this program, every athlete is tested to determine exactly what type of training he or she needs as an individual in order to maximize jump height.
After testing, we analyze the data and build your program to target exactly what you need and not waste your time and energy with what you don’t.
Once you do the testing and we write your training program, you can then complete the program on your own. Our programs are written in four-week cycles. After you complete your four-week cycle, you’ll come back for re-testing to track progress and determine what changes need to be made in your training. As you advance, the type of training you need will change. RE-testing every four weeks allows us to monitor your progression closely so that every training session is exactly what your body needs to get as explosive as possible.
Our adult fitness personal training programs are uniquely tailored to your individual goals, lifestyle, and abilities to help you move forward and live the life you want to live.
We provide quality, comprehensive injury plans for every athlete to prevent injuries or suffering from any type of movement or function disorder.
Our movement specialists identify if the way your body moves or your strength levels are contributing to pain, putting you at an increased risk for suffering a shoulder injury, running injury or even a torn ACL that can hold you back from your highest level of athletic performance.
Conditions we treat include but are not limited to:
Runner’s Injury Prevention:
When it comes to running, that starts with a running analysis.
Our advanced technology gives incredible insight into how your body runs. We measure every movement your lower body makes when running, from your ankle all the way up to your hip.
This allows us to break down every aspect of your technique to determine what is holding you back from being your best, fastest, and most pain-free competitor. After that, we prescribe exercises to strengthen your running.
The end result is you become a faster, safer runner, prolonging your running career and getting you better results along the way.
Whether you’re a cross country athlete, an adult competitive runner, or a weekend warrior, if you want to run faster or with less pain, you are in the right place.
Shoulder Injury Prevention:
If you’re an overhead athlete who has ever worried about a shoulder injury like a rotator cuff or labrum tear, a Tommy John injury (which is almost always caused by a bad shoulder), or nerve damage like thoracic outlet syndrome that causes numbness and tingling pain down your arm and hand, and you want to do everything you can to make sure you have a long, injury-free career, you are in the right place.
Physical therapists are movement specialists that have doctorate-level training in assessing, analyzing, and treating movement disorders using the power of your own body.
By knowing exactly what to look for, and how to fix the problems found, pain and injury can be avoided altogether.
ACL Tear Prevention:
There are four key predictors for ACL-tears: strength and power, strength symmetry, and body control.
Strength and power are critical for both athletic performance and injury prevention.
Strength and power symmetry refers to how similar your strength and power levels are between legs. Nobody is 100% the same on both sides, but if one of your legs is significantly stronger or more powerful than the other, your body compensates in ways that put you at increased risk for getting hurt.
Body control is the most well known of these risk factors. Knees that cave in when you run, jump, and make cuts increase the likelihood of injury.
Testing each of these factors gives you a clear idea of your strengths and weaknesses and highlights exactly what you need to work on to remove as much ACL-tear risk as possible.
If you want to know the truth about how your body works, and if you want to prevent a devastating, life-changing injury, this ACL-tear risk assessment is for you.
We work with employers and employees toward preventing work-related injuries, helping to save valuable dollars, lost time, and a lot of pain for both.
Our therapists utilize some of the top testing programs available today, to evaluate potential employees’ physical capabilities of doing their jobs as well as assess ergonomics and provide functional capacity evaluations (FCEs) using the renowned programs including the WorkSTEPS ® Program.
Work hardening, Work Capacity Testing & WorkSTEPS are designed to provide employers with an objective employment testing program that reduces work-place injury incidence and injury costs reduces lost time, and creates accountability for employees and the providers who treat them.
We focus on an active injury prevention approach to helping you:
• We will educate your employees on how to maintain safe work habits. • We will evaluate employees and their environments to ensure safety.
If you’re an employer or any employee who is concerned about work injury please ask any member of our team about our programs that can make a difference for your company’s bottom line.
Falls and fear of falling in our senior population are recognized public health crises.
According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in older adults by a wide margin. Each year, more than two million seniors experience a fall severe enough to necessitate emergency medical treatment. This number along with the associated personal and societal costs of falling is expected to rise as our population ages. Despite these grim statistics, many falls are preventable with professional interventions that address the causes of falling in older adults.
Our expert clinicians are trained in evidence-based interventions that are proven by controlled clinical trials to effectively reduce the number of falls in older adults.
There are other factors that also contribute to falls. Neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain injury, vestibular disorders, and neuropathy also increase fall risk. Our therapy team is well equipped to address the problems of falling and the fear of falling in individuals living with these conditions.
Friendly staff -- both at front desk and in PT room; patient centered -- they show they really care about you and your progress and listen to what you say; always get seen at the time of my appointment (no waiting); and they are doing wonders helping me through my rehab after rotator cuff surgery. GREAT PLACE!!!
This location has Covid precautions in place where everyone wears their masks and every station is cleaned after every use, it's very clean, staff is very nice and caring Physical therapists are very professional and caring.
Everyone at the Harrison-Spanish Trail office is pleasant & helpful. Erik, my therapist, is great...he is a good listener, explains things well so the “layman” understands. I’d say he’s creative, too, or at least has a myriad of exercises or techniques to use with the patient, so that if one is hurtful or difficult for the patient, he knows of another method to get the desired results.He’s patient & has a sense of humor. Mark Morelli, a PT Aide, is also quite good...is knowledgeable, explains things well & the desired goals. He’s also quite good with manipulating/massaging the ankle &/or outer leg to bring some mobility & pain relief. Good combination
I don't think I would have healed without this place. I came in for a hip injury from giving birth which resulted in my baby being stillborn. My therapist, Kristen, always made me feel comfortable and was great at working with me after what I've been through. She was also very informative about all of my treatments so that I knew how to help myself heal. She convinced me to do dry needling and I couldn't believe what a difference it made and it didn't even hurt! I'm glad I was able to work with her and it was worth the wait to get started! I believe my injury is fully healed now and I have a good set of exercises to prevent it from happening again.
This was my first time going to physical therapy and my experience was wonderful! My PT was Alyssa H. and I have never experienced this level of care. I thought I would have to deal with my pain for the rest of my life. After 6 weeks not only did I feel 100% better but Alyssa gave me tools and insight to take with me so I could continue my healing at home. I left with a greater awareness and understanding of my body thanks to her personal approach to my therapy. I would highly recommend this location. Thank you!
I have seen NOTHING but amazing results from my time with Body Central. I’ve had really scary issues with my ankle and it’s been such a confidence boost having such supportive Physical Therapists to guide me through the healing process. The staff genuinely cares about the people they work with and it shows. I can’t recommend them enough. Thank you for all you do!!!
Prompt and knowledgeable. I feel like I'm being worked hard and making progress!
The Whole Staff ⚕️ is AMAZING YET AWESOME..GLAD I CHOSE THIS LOCATION...
As soon as I walked in the door, I knew this is where I belong to start my PT process. Been to three places and unfortunately I just didn't feel a connection whatsoever. Staff is very caring, and welcoming! Alyssa my PT, she is very knowledgeable, professional, and truly cares to get me healed and back to walking again. I would highly recommend this location if your looking for the best care to get you on the road to recovery!!!
Everyone is so nice. .. they make sure you are doing ok and not over doing it
