The Division of Sports Medicine offers comprehensive programming to improve musculoskeletal function, boost athletic skills, and enhance performance. We offer a wide variety of performance enhancement programs to reduce the risk of injury, and optimize work or athletic function to reach your goals. Programs, in individual or group sessions, include:
- The Core and Plyometric, Over-Head Athlete, and Speed and Agility programs improve athletic performance through increased power, speed, agility and flexibility.
- Dartfish, a computer software program, analyzes and breaks down active motion in the form of video clips. Used to analyze job function, sport-specific skills or drills, and/or functional tests, our sports medicine professionals will analyze and compare your movement to standardized functional movement clips. In addition to a filming session, you may opt to receive corrective exercise instruction and reanalysis.
- Functional Movement Screen is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns essential to normal function. After testing, incorrect movement patterns will be corrected through exercises working one-on-one with a HF Sports Medicine Professional.
- Our Golfit Group Exercise Class focuses on improving your golf game through physical fitness. Our HF Sports Medicine Professionals teach you a pre-game warm-up and direct you through golf-specific strength and flexibility exercises. We also offer individual sessions that include a physical assessment and video swing analysis along with a personalized workout program.
- RunFast features a one-on-one assessment with a sports medicine professional to evaluate and offer tips to improve your running. Our program includes total body biomechanical and functional assessments, including gait evaluation. The sports medicine professional will incorporate the findings and your history into an injury prevention and management program to improve your running form.
