Sports Screen & Therapy Services for Weight Lifters

A therapeutic program for the everyday weight lifter!

Our Approach
lbp_photoshoot-172At Therapeutic Associates Clackamas Physical Therapy, we offer an extensive, detail oriented sports screen and therapeutic program for the everyday weight lifter. Our screens and evaluations help to identify any mobility and muscular deficits that may be contributing to increases in pain and decreases in performance. Most programming for weight lifters of all kinds, including Crossfit, Strongman and Powerlifting, are based on exercises that are very linearly based. This sets the athlete up to be very strong in one plane with noted limitations in the other directions. This can set the athlete up for injury and pain. Through the use of functional movement analysis, manual therapeutic techniques, and an individualized therapeutic exercise program, these athletes can see significant decreases in pain and soft tissue restrictions while improving performance.

During Treatment, Our Therapists Will Work To:

  • Decrease soft tissue restrictions that are limiting joint mobility
  • Increase muscular strength and activation which can lead to an increase in performance
  • Identify and correct any false or compensatory movement patterns that are leading to an increase in symptoms
  • Establish a unique and individualized therapeutic exercise program to meet and support each patients perspective goals

What To Expect:

  • An extensive full body exam related to each patient’s condition as well as the adjacent joints possibly contributing to symptoms
  • Hands on techniques that have been shown to reduce muscular restrictions as well as increase neuromuscular facilitation of the muscles themselves
  • Individualized exercises to address noted impairments, relieve symptoms and ultimately improve performance
