With the goal of trying to increase the Performance Therapy® experience, we have developed the online video library. Here, our patients can access a fantastic resource for free to help them get better even faster. If you are not a patient you can still have access to the library for an annual fee of $99. Contact Performance Therapy for more information.
There are three categories to the Performance Therapy Exercise Library.
The neurological resets are comprised of exercises that are designed to build functional neural pathways between brain and muscular system that are fundamental to human movement. It is a relearning or reinforcing of the "original" movement program we as humans all went through as infants before we earned the right to get on two feet and walk. Rolling on the ground and crawling are components of this seemingly basic but extremely crucial component of proper, efficient movement.
The warmup and foam rolling section will provide an increase of range of motion, myofacial release, and prepare the muscles for corrective exercise and higher levels of activity. Static stretching has shown to be of benefit but dynamic stretching and range of motion increases BEFORE exercising can be just as beneficial if not more important.
Corrective exercise section of the video library is utilized to target dysfunctions discovered with the Functional Movement Screen. These exercises are used to accurately reestablish function within the basic movement pattern standards required for human movement. These will help to not only correct the 7 tests within the screen but will deter the body from compensating in an inefficient manner that could lead to future injury and pain.
"Throughout my years of training beginning in High School with the 5k, College with the 8k, and then continuing on with the marathon and beyond I have always relied on professional advice to properly train my body to perform at it's highest ability. I had the luxury of physical trainers, coaches, and equipment throughout High School and College and utilized them weekly. When I moved to Greenville in 2009 I quickly realized the absence of a reliable physical therapy resource and watched my rate of injury increase. Performance Therapy came highly recommended through numerous success stories of other local athletes competing at all levels and I decided to attend one of their running clinics. I was very impressed that the entire staff of Performance Therapy came to the free event and could tell they genuinely cared about each individual athlete. This same personal treatment is felt every time I come in for an appointment and interact with the thorough staff. My performances have spoken to the comprehensive analysis' and experiences I have had and will continue to have at Performance Therapy. Thank you for helping me maintain a high level of fitness, for your unselfish community outreach, and your unwavering dedication to helping athletes achieve their goals!"
