Old Bridge Speed and Agility Training Supports Sports Injury Rehab
Speed and Agility Training Key to Enhance Athletic Performance
Our speed and agility training program focuses on enhancing athletic performance after a sports injury. For example, if you have sprained an ankle or are recovering from knee surgery, you may be frustrated that your current athletic performance is not as fast or as quick as it was prior to your injury accident. Our chiropractors and physical therapists can not only help bring you back to your previous skill level, but also enhance all aspects of your athletic performance. Even following an injury, many athletes find that through our training program, they are ultimately able to perform better than they did prior to their injuries.
Speed and agility training is a form of training that uses different exercises and drills to improve running mechanics, explosiveness and controlled directional change. Speed is the rate at which you move from one target to another. Agility is the ability to move and change direction quickly in a controlled manner. Our sports exercises focus on the components of speed (running form, first step quickness, resisted speed and technique) and the mechanics of agility (change in direction, lateral quickness, multi-directional, foot speed, reaction time). We also offer complementary coordination and flexibility training to enhance all aspects of athletic performance.
Depending on the extent of your sports injury, we may first begin with corrective care exercises that focus on mastering basic movements and building strength. For example, if you suffer from chronic knee pain due to an injury, building strength in the muscles and soft tissues near your knee will help increase your stability and performance while playing sports. This basic foundation is necessary before progressing to more advanced speed and agility training.
