If your Wildcat’s athletic aspirations include winning a state championship or earning a college scholarship, they cannot afford to be limited by an injury. Season ending surgeries, like ACL reconstruction or Tommy John, have recently become increasingly common in teenage athletes.

Biomechanical inefficiencies, which can be caused by compensations from a previous injury or recent growth spurt, lead to high risk movements that have been correlated with increased risk of injury and decreased performance. Weak stabilizing muscles and poor trunk control often trigger these movements. An individualized assessment is necessary to determine the specific mobility, stability and strength imbalances to determine the appropriate course of action.
