Baseball & Softball Player Injury Prevention and Performance Enhancement

Located in Manhattan's Union Square, NYC

Our program educates athletes on foundational athletic movement and improves their movement precision, bridging the gap between rehabilitation, physical therapy, fitness, and performance training. 

In order to reduce injury risk and optimize performance, the modern day athlete needs to develop an understanding of the movement science behind proper throwing, hitting, and fielding mechanics. They must learn how to sequence balance, timing, and transfer of force and power through the entire kinetic chain.

Work alongside physical therapists, who have advanced training in strength and conditioning, functional training movement, and kinesiology. With their experience, our physical therapists help athletes reach, and ultimately maximize, an athlete's athletic potential; ensuring they receive the unique attention that they need to develop perform. 

                           What to Expect from the                              Baseball & Softball Program

Incorporating cutting edge physical therapy techniques, movement education, and mechanics retraining, an individualized program is devised to correct underlying impairments. Ultimately, to return the athlete back to the field-and keep them on the field.
