Sports Performance Programs & Therapy in North Carolina

Sports performance programs and sports therapy help athletes, their families, and coaches learn how to better prepare the body for the high demands of many sport activities.

These programs, offered by sports therapy of Wake Forest Baptist, can be designed as a short clinic to teach exercise and training options that can be incorporated into athletes' regular training, or can be offered in a camp or individual training sessions.

ACL Injury Prevention Training

The fundamental movements taught in each sports performance program by our sports therapy team can improve athletic performance, while at the same time helping to prevent common injuries. The sports therapy training programs are designed and instructed by sports physical therapists and athletic trainers, and may be offered at our main facility or at an off-site location.

The Throwing Clinic is a sports performance program for all overhead athletes. Participation is open to middle school through high school athletes and their parents/coaches. One aspect of the clinic is education about some of the common causes for injury during overhead movements, such as core weakness, muscle imbalances or incomplete strength and flexibility training. Activities include learning core muscle control, balance, hip and leg strengthening, scapular strengthening, rotator cuff exercises, and trunk and shoulder flexibility. The sports performance clinic is generally 2 hours on a Saturday morning and offered for a minimal fee. These clinics are usually scheduled during the winter, to help encourage better preparation for spring sports.
