Boosting Young Athletes: Physical Therapy and Performance Training with ORS

Boosting Young Athletes: Physical Therapy and Performance Training

Young athletes are fueled by their passion for sports, but this enthusiasm can come at a cost – the risk of injuries. To ensure their longevity and success, young athletes should prioritize injury prevention, health, and self-awareness. This can be achieved through a powerful combination of physical therapy and performance training.

Injury Prevention

Injury prevention is paramount for young athletes. Physical therapists assess biomechanics, strength, and flexibility, designing personalized programs to mitigate risks.

  • Biomechanical Analysis: Identify risky movement patterns and make necessary adjustments.
  • Strength and Conditioning: Build a strong foundation to reduce the risk of injuries.

Health and Wellness

Physical therapy contributes to overall well-being, including:

  • Nutritional Guidance: Optimize diets for peak performance and recovery.
  • Mental Health Support: Manage the pressures of competition and stress.
  • Injury Rehabilitation: Recover effectively to prevent reinjury.

Self-Awareness

Performance training enhances self-awareness, helping athletes make informed decisions:

  • Functional Movement Screening: Identify limitations and weaknesses.
  • Goal Setting and Tracking: Achieve goals and track progress.
  • Rest and Recovery Education: Prioritize rest and recovery for optimal performance.​

For young athletes, success goes hand in hand with injury prevention, health, and self-awareness. Physical therapy and performance training equip them with essential tools, setting the stage for enduring athletic careers and lifelong well-being.

Pelvic Floor issues and Bladder Leakage with Kami Decker of ORS

“Pelvic floor issues can present in multiple of ways – bladder leakage, pregnancy/postpartum, pain with intercourse and even back/hip pain. Most issues related to the pelvic floor are deemed “common” such as bladder leakage with activity, coughing and sneezing especially as we age and after having children. However, just because these may be common does not mean that they are normal; these can be treated with effected pelvic health physical therapy.”  Kami Decker, PT​, DPT, AT, ATC

Women's Health - Stretches and Relaxation with Becca Boeing from Orthopaedic Rebab Specialists

More Women’s Health with Becca Boeing from Orthopaedic Rehab Specialists

Oftentimes people associate pelvic health with doing kegels. More times this is adding to the cause instead of helping. When muscles are tight and overactive they can cause pain. When we continue to use these muscles they become tighter and can spasm. Stretching these muscles and allowing them to relax can oftentimes be a part of the solution. Once the muscles have calmed down, then we can work on strengthening and ensuring proper activation.

Some of the best stretches and relaxation positions are 

  • child’s pose
  • modified happy baby
  • supine butterfly
  • modified supine butterfly
  • legs up the wall/modified legs up the wall

See visuals and examples HERE.

Couple these stretches with diaphragmatic breathing.

These stretches and relaxation poses can help with back pain, hip pain, pain with intercourse, painful periods, etc.

Performance Training with coach Nick VanBogelen from Orthopaedic Rehab Specialists

As parents, we can all agree that watching our kids grow and change is one of the greatest feelings you can ever experience. The worry and anxiety of watching them struggle through milestones quickly dissolves when you see them conquer the challenge. As they grow they become riskier and the achievements greater.

When children enter into sports, we start thinking about the potential for those injuries. Injuries can be scary, worrisome, and something we have to expect will happen. However, we can actively reduce their risk. Similar to when our babies made those first moves to roll over, crawl and walk. This can be done without hovering over them, preventing the freedom they need and desire to excel.

There are several very easy daily steps that can be taken to significantly reduce the risk of injury for your children within sports. Simple, but also often the most challenging: Water and food! We all know of the importance of water to survive but it’s also an essential part of being able to perform adequately, let alone are top level. It’s hard to determine the total number of sports injuries that are caused from dehydration but It is estimated that the highest 40% of all injuries could be prevented just from properly hydrating.

Food: It’s always a surprise the limited knowledge athletes have in regards to what they are eating and how much they should consume. Educating athletes on a simple nutrition plan helps give them the necessary building blocks to repair muscle tissue as well as keeping them moving.

Educating your children on the importance of movement, hydration and nutrition is the best way to keep them off the bench and on the field, injury free. In the many years I’ve been a strength & conditioning coach and athletic trainer, the most successful athletes are the ones who are aware of these simple things.

Nick VanBogelen (AT, ATC, CSCS, NSCA, PN1) is a graduate of Albion College with a BA in Athletic Training with a concentration in Exercise Science. He has been working with ORS since 2005 with interests in manual therapy, performance training, rehab progression and reversion. Nick enjoys spending time with his wife Richelle, son Brody and daughter EV. In his free time, Nick really enjoys being involved with environmental conservation.

What is pelvic floor/women’s health PT?

Your pelvic floor are the muscles that make up the bottom of your pelvis and are responsible for supporting your organs (bladder, bowels, uterus in women). Male and female have a pelvic floor.

Insufficient muscle contractions or spasms of the pelvic floor can lead to several things.
⁃       Fecal and urinary incontinence
⁃       Constipation
⁃       Pain with intercourse
⁃       Chronic low back pain
⁃       Deep hip pain
⁃       Prolapse
⁃       Heavy menstrual cycle

Pelvic floor dysfunction can stem from pregnancy, labor/postpartum (no matter how many years), abdominal surgery OR simply weakness and/or lack of coordination.

This does NOT mean kegals are the answer!!!

Women’s Health PT can help with pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum, incontinence and urgency, chronic low back pain, deep hip pain, painful menstrual cycles, pain with intercourse, and so much more. If this pertains to you reach out and let us help you.
