Most back problems result from cumulative stress, muscle weakness, and poor posture and body mechanics. Unless the underlying causes of low back problems are addressed, the risk of re-injury remains high.

The Institute for Athletic Medicine is dedicated to meeting the distinctive health care needs of artists and performers. The Dance Program offers specialized exercise programs to help treat and prevent injuries. Our therapists work with you and your physician to develop an exercise and treatment program tailored to your needs, to get you back to the dance you love.
Manual therapy has been shown to be an important aspect of your overall plan of care. In comparisons of those individuals who are prescribed exercise alone versus those who also receive manual therapy, the group receiving both often has better outcomes. Our providers pair manual therapy with exercises and patient education to quickly best treat your condition and get you back to the things you love to do.
Mechanical diagnosis and therapy (MDT) is a philosophy of care which involves active patient involvement and education. It is an evidenced based approach that is trusted and used by practitioners and patients all over the world for neck, back and extremity problems. MDT’s key distinction is the initial assessment component – a safe and reliable means to accurately reach a diagnosis and only then make the appropriate treatment plan.

Physical therapy is at the core of what our team does each and every day. Physical therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who treat people for muscle, bone and joint conditions that limit their ability to move and perform activities in their daily lives or in sports. Physical therapy is used to help people return to work and play after an injury, surgery, or illness.
Pilates is a method of body conditioning that uses a unique system of strengthening, stretching and breathing to develop the powerhouse, or “core” of the body: abdominals, low back, gluteals and supporting muscle groups that include inner and outer thighs, pelvic floor and the upper back.
The thrower's injury program aims to return injured athletes to their sport at or above their previous level of performance. With an understanding of the unique mechanical requirements of throwing, physical therapists develop an individualized return-to-throwing program to improve strength, mobility and throwing mechanics to prevent further injury. The return to peak performance requires involvement of coaches, athletic trainers and parents.
Changes in a woman’s body brought about by pregnancy, aging or illness often result in discomfort, loss of mobility and lifestyle changes. Pelvic pain and dysfunction may occur throughout all stages of a woman’s life. The Women’s Health Program at the Institute for Athletic Medicine offers specialized physical therapy and exercise programs to help treat or prevent these problems. Our physical therapists work with you and your physician to develop an exercise and treatment program tailored to your needs, including access to education materials for home use.
