Performance Enhancement

No matter what your age or sport, AthletiCare's Performance Enhancement program can help to improve your game and reduce the risk of injuries.

We'll work with you to improve your:

  • agility
  • speed
  • strength
  • power
  • endurance
  • flexibility
  • core stability, and
  • balance.

Through the Performance Enhancement program, you'll also reduce the of risk of injuries.

Approximately 70% of ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injuries occur during non-contact situations such as landing from a jump or during turning/twisting activities when a sudden imbalance occurs in the lower extremity. Many of these non-contact injuries are preventable through proper training.

As a Certified Clinical Site for Cincinnati Sports Medicine Research and Education Foundation, our goal is to develop strong athletes with good technique to prevent injury AND enhance performance. The program is scientifically proven to increase jump height and reduce the risk of serious knee injuries.

Performance Enhancement Programs

As part of our program, you may participate in:

  • ACL reduction programs to reduce your risk of knee injury
  • Specialized running programs to improve your speed and running form; you will run on a treadmill as we evaluate how your foot strikes, how you push off from the ground and other techniques. We will also ensure that you wear the proper sneakers to provide the best support.    

Who Will Benefit

Our participants train for softball, golf, volleyball, basketball, hockey, and other sports. They may play as part of a sports team or recreationally.

This program also benefits runners, who may want to reduce their time in a marathon or ensure that they use the proper technique to prevent injury.

We tailor our programs for each group based on sport, position and personal performance goals.

Length of Program

To see improvements, you must practice proper techniques over a period of time. Our program is generally four weeks long, with sessions that occur twice per week. We will tailor the program to accomodate your needs.

Cost

Because the program is customized for the group, costs vary. Please email us or call (716) 44-SPORT / (716) 447-7678 for fee information.

Training Facilities

Group sessions take place at an alternate location, such as at a team's practice field. We will work with you to find a suitable location.
