Return-To-Sport Movement Evaluation

Many athletes go through their rehabilitation program and reach a certain point where they feel no pain, they appear strong and they seem to pass the “eye test.” However, how do you truly know if you are ready to get back on the court or field?

At PIM, we utilize a movement-based test protocol to determine if the athlete is physically ready to return to high-level activities. We provide a diagnostic report, which can provide the surgeon and family on how high or low their risk for re-injury is. We hope to make this a requirement for all surgeons in their preparation for discharging ACL patients.

  • Recovering athletes thinking about returning to sport (i.e. ACL reconstruction)
  • Parents hoping to find a functional return-to-sport evaluation for their child
  • Surgeons or physicians looking for a movement-based functional test to assist in return-to-play decisions

This evaluation will provide you with:

  1. A movement-based grade report to determine if you are at a high or low risk for re-injury.
  2. A functional strength report to identify any remaining weaknesses you have in your body.
  3. An individualized, performance-based movement training program to fix any biomechanical deficits.
Running Analysis

Roughly 70% of runners experience pain with running in their lifetime. These injuries have been linked to poor running biomechanics. This means that your body alignment during running can be causing your hip, knee, and/or foot pain.

At PIM, we specialize in running-related issues and use state-of-the-art motion-capture system to analyze and measure a runner’s alignment during running. Coupled with additional muscle flexibility and strength testing, we develop a diagnostic report to be given the runner to fix their problem for the long haul.

  • The recreational or competitive runner experiencing pain during running
  • The motivated runner looking to minimize their risk for injury and maximize their running potential

To identify potential running-related movement risk factors

  1. To improve running efficiency
  2. To learn and develop an optimized and individualized running pattern
Sports Movement Analysis

Your movements and mechanics can be the direct cause of your injury, pain or poor performance.

At PIM, we study and understand sports movements. From our technology-based evaluation, we are able to discover the movement cause of your pain and movement-limiting concern.

  • Elite or recreational athletes looking to determine movement-related causes for injury and/or poor performance
  • Coaches trying to find the competitive edge for their team and reduce injury while maximizing performance
  • Sports agents aiming to protect their athletes and prolong their client’s athletic lifespan

This evaluation will provide you with:

  1. A movement-based grade report to determine if you are at a high or low risk for injury.
  2. A functional strength report to identify any remaining weaknesses or muscular imbalances.
  3. An individualized, performance-based movement training program to fix any biomechanical deficits.
