Sports Performance Therapy

We offer the Premiere Sports Performance Training Program in all of northwest Missouri, founded upon the most innovative sports science principles that professional athletes use. 

Sports Performance training helps you identify “at risk” movement patterns for injury prevention and helps you with personalized performance and sports specific programming to get to the next athletic level. We take a sports science approach to movement training, enabling athletes to first build a foundation to their movement before adding performance and skill training. Choose from individual sessions; small group sessions with two to three athletes; or larger group classes.

The Athletic Profile uses several research-validated tests and video analysis to help identify injury risk as well as monitor sports performance progress over the course of training.
