SPORTS THERAPY

GETTING YOU BACK INTO YOUR GAME

Riata Physical Therapy clinicians are the premier rehabilitation facility in North Texas for athletes. You will be receiving treatment administered from athletes for athletes. We have a form of exercise that incorporates constantly varied functional movements. Its primary goal is to provide others with an overall physical preparedness for life’s constantly changing tasks and games.

SFMA & FMS SCREENINGS

The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) offers a unique perspective for corrective exercise in a clinical setting and is designed to help your therapist detect deficiencies in movement and develop a treatment protocol geared toward choosing the best possible therapeutic exercises available.

TheFunctional Movement Screen (FMS) evaluates fundamental movements, motor control patterns, and competence of basic postural awareness. It will determine the greatest areas of movement deficiency, demonstrate limitations or asymmetries, and eventually correlate these with a possible adverse outcome. After this your therapist can create an exercise program that will strengthen these weaknesses and allow your body to build stability, strength, and mobility in order to prevent a possible injury.

RUNNING ASSESSMENT

We offer a unique running assessment service where runners of any skill level can come and have their running style analyzed to identify any alignment asymmetries that you might have. Our expert will evaluate your results and give advice on how to improve your running technique, make shoe recommendations, or fit you with customized orthotics to correct your form if indicated. Our expertise will help prevent the wear and tear that endurance running applies to your musculoskeletal system and keep you running safer, longer, and faster.

BARBELL REHAB

For many of our clients there is a simple solution, get STRONGER. There is no better way than using the basic barbell movements to support strength, lean muscle mass, mobility and function. Life is built on several basic movements, squatting/sitting down-standing up, reaching/lifting overhead and bending over at the waist to pick something up. Using the squat, press and deadlift barbell movements under the watchful eye of our trained staff, we teach clients how to safely use the barbell to rehab and improve these daily functional movements. Each client’s program is individualized and appropriate for their level of rehabilitation and healing. We have staff that have received additional post. Doctorate training as a Starting Strength Coach (SSC) and Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).
