At the beginning of a new year, it's common to reflect on what you have achieved in the past year and what you want to work toward for the next year. Working with Fuerza will keep your body primed to train and help you recover faster between workouts, ensuring you are ready to give it your all every session.
Physical therapy isn't just for injuries anymore.
Meeting with a physical therapist is so much more than getting out of pain after an injury. Think of physical therapy at Fuerza as a personal trainer highly specialized in injury risk reduction and movement optimization. Dr. Sam has a highly developed tool kit from years of training and competing, making her a top choice for collaboration on 2024 goals.
During your visit with Dr. Sam, she will do a full body assessment with special emphasis on any areas or movements you know may be irritable. There we will find deficiencies on mobility, strength, and/or stability and prioritize problem areas to ensure we spend the most amount of time working on the biggest deficits.
Once we have an idea of what you need to work on, you will collaborate on an accessory work plan that will seamlessly integrate into the gym program you already follow. This can look a few different ways: warm up drills to prepare you for a difficult lift (ex: a personalized hip warm up for someone having trouble with squat depth), an accessory plan to complete after your workout (ex: specialized rotator cuff exercises for someone with pinchy shoulders on overhead lifts), or some combination to fits your needs best.
By working on small issues early, you not only avoid injuries but improve your performance, meaning you can lift heavier and recover faster.
