Athletic Training

Maximize performance, prevent injury, and become a better athlete with our elite sports performance programs under the supervision of Mike Blackgrove MSA, NSCA CPT. in conjunction with our staff athletic trainers.

How It Works

Our sports performance programs start off with our staff athletic trainers providing an individualized 1-on-1 biomechanical and movement assessment. This allows us to create the perfect customized program based on your goals, needs, sport, and current abilities. Our focus is on complete athletic development. We will combine mobility, agility, strength, power, and endurance into one complete program, with emphasis on the areas you need, to perform well in your specific sport.

Spectrum Physical Therapy & Athletic Training LLC provides outreach athletic training services to local secondary schools, colleges, and professional athletes. Our Athletic Trainers are board certified and licensed healthcare professionals who specialize in preventing, evaluating, managing, and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. As part of a complete healthcare team, the athletic trainer works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other professionals such as school nurses, physical therapists, athletics administrators, coaches, and parents.

What our Program Includes

To build the complete athlete, you need to focus on all aspects of performance.  Other programs often focus on only a handful of these attributes, which can lead to suboptimal performance, or worse, injury.  By focusing on complete athletic development, you are assuring that you address all your weaknesses and maximize your strengths.  This is especially important for athletes that play multiple sports, each with unique needs.

You will perform your program in a team environment with other athletes, but we will customize your program based on your level and needs.  This makes our environment fun and dynamic, while still allowing us to offer you plenty of individualized attention. We will advance your program throughout the season to assure you continue to make progress and maximize performance.
