Are you wondering how to take your young athlete's game to the next level? Is your child struggling to find the right rhythm for his swing, pitch, jump or serve? Is pain limiting her endurance, accuracy or speed?
The Akron Children's Hospital Sports Medicine Rehabilitation Program offers sports performance and training analysis to help your athlete enhance his sports performance, prevent injury or get back in the game following injury. We are the first facility in Ohio to offer this 3D technology to break down your child's performance technique in a comprehensive way.
First, our licensed, sports-trained physical therapists will obtain a medical history and perform a musculoskeletal screen with a functional activity assessment. Next, using 3D technology, we will capture a video recording of your child performing sport-specific activities in a typical sports environment.
With the assistance of an experienced, sport-focused biomechanist, we will analyze your child's movements for gross motor patterns, sequencing and inefficiencies. By comparing your child's movements to collective performance data, we can identify areas for improvement.
Based on the collaborative findings of the physical therapists and the 3D motion analysis, our team will develop a personalized program that is focused on your child's specific training and conditioning needs. A physical therapist will review the recommended exercises and guide your child through an individualized home training program.
Our goal is to help improve your athlete's performance as effectively and safely as possible.
Our Sports Performance and Training Analysis with 3D Technology provides an individualized, comprehensive service. Group discounts may be available to analyze small groups, such as members of the same team performing the same activity.
Once the analysis is complete, each athlete will receive his video analysis, a personalized report outlining our findings and a customized sport exercise prescription for home.
With the 3D technology and our team's expertise in movement science and injury prevention, let us help your athlete reach her sports performance goals.
