Injury prevention isn't just for young athletes

​​

Usually high school sports comes to mind when you hear injury prevention. However, preventative care is for all seasons of life, and all types of environments/activities. 

It may be a kayak trip with friends and you want to ensure your shoulders aren't hurting on the 2nd day of a 5 day

adventure, or it may be daily work positions or tasks that are starting to give you some back pain you'd like to stop and prevent from becoming a chronic problem, or maybe its construction or manual labor and you need to be able to move, twist, reach, and lift in many directions at any given time, or it could be the case that comes to mind when you hear "injury prevention" and we are here to help prevent
ACL injuries, sprained ankles, or dislocated shoulders within sport play/practice. There are many scenarios in which preventative work to build strong resilient bodies, improve coordination, identify deficits, and more can keep you protected and significantly reduce the risk of injury and the severity of injury in those unpreventable scenarios.
