Total Rehab Physical Therapy

Treatment for

Plantar Fasciitis

Pain located along the medial (inside) aspect of the heel or arch of foot that is typically worse in the morning.

Achilles Tendinitis

Increased pain, swelling or thickness of the achilles tendon. Crepitus, or a crackling sound, when the tendon is moved or touched is very common.

Shin Splints

Pain in or around the shin that increases with running. Most commonly, the pain is located either on the anterior (front) or medial (inside) portion of the shin.

Lower Back Injury

Pain in the low back that increases with prolonged running, cycling or a combination of the activities.

Patella Femoral Syndrome (PFS)

Generalized knee pain that is primarily localized around the kneecap (patella). The pain typically increases with running (or with other high impact activities), walking downstairs or with prolonged sitting.

Illiotibial Band (ITB) Syndrome

Pain that is located on the lateral (outside) aspect of the knee that gradually increases with running. The pain may become so severe that a person will begin running or walking with a straight leg to avoid bending the knee.

Rotator Cuff/Shoulder Impingement

General pain that results from repetitive overhead motions, such as swimming. Pain is typically localized in the outer region of the shoulder.

Functional Movement Screen

A screening technique to assess movement quality, reduce injury, and improve performance.

The Side Plank primarily strengthens the obliques, which are located next to your abs on both sides of your body. However, this is a full-body exercise that also trains the muscles in your hips, chest and shoulders.
Side Plank variations are based on the same philosophy as traditional Planks, which is to prevent movement of your spine—how your core is designed to function.
As an athlete, this is a critical skill. Your lumbar spine, located in your lower back, is designed for stability, not mobility. Repeatedly moving the vertebrae in ways they aren't designed to handle may cause back pain and ultimately lead to an injury, such as a herniated disc.
In addition, a more stable and stiffer core is better able to transfer energy between your lower and upper body. You'll be more powerful in skills such as throwing a ball, you'll have better balance and you'll be harder to knock off the ball and more efficient when moving around the field, thanks to having better control of your body.

Concentration involves mastering the ability to hard focus or fine center your eyes on an extremely small object.  An example of this can be instructing a pitcher to concentrate on the catcher’s glove.  To take it a step further you can ask them to hard focus on one of the laces on the catcher’s mitt.

Focus is of one of the most important aspects of pitching. So many times you see young pitchers lose the strike zone because of their inability to concentrate.
One the things we work on at Baseball ⚾️ Strong 💪🏽 is creating a competitive environment which forces kids to maintain focus by implementing games that create an urgency for every pitch.  The goal here is to Push a pitcher into what is known as hard focus.  When a pitcher is able to maintain this degree of hard focus consistently he can consistently achieve what he practices in game situations. This is why it’s important that pitchers practice hard focusing every time they throw.

One of the most devastating injuries for a pitcher is a labral tear.
While 85 percent of pitchers make a full recovery after an ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction, aka the once risky Tommy John surgery, approximately 3 percent make a full recovery from a labral tear.
These injuries can occur during the deceleration phase of the pitching motion (as the ball is released), at the attachment of long head of biceps. Over time the excessive utilization of this muscle could lead to a superior labrum anterior to posterior (SLAP) tear.
One exercise that can help strengthen the supporting structures is the TRX 💪🏽 Curl. This exercise effectively targets two major muscles: the brachialis and the biceps brachii. While this exercise is commonly used to develop beach 🏖 muscles, it can also be functional at times 😎. #baseballstrong #batspeed #performbetter #nysluggersbaseball #psll_nyc#pitchingdrills ##mlb #sportsperformance #baseballworkout #orthopaedics #athletetraining #athletedevelopment #physicaltherapy #sportsinjury #crossfit #sportsmedicine#sportsrehab #baseball #athletictraining #sportscience #sandlottotheshow #fitnessmodel #fit #athleticperformance #labraltear #gunshow #trx #crunchfitness #crunch34thstreet

One of the new drills added to our Baseball ⚾️ Strong 💪🏽 program is the swing to contact Drill demonstrated above. Swinging a weighted bat into the rubber box challenges your legs, hips, core, upper body and even grip.
Typically, rotational skills are developed with med ball drills. Although they are effective, holding the heavy bat adds an element of raw strength that cannot be duplicated by throwing a ball against a wall. Everything from your feet to your hands have to work to power and control the a bat. This exercise will help you rotate with more force, which will increase your power in skills such as throwing a ball, swinging a bat, and generating more bat speed. #baseballstrong #batspeed #performbetter #nysluggersbaseball #psll_nyc#pitchingdrills ##mlb #sportsperformance #baseballworkout #orthopaedics #athletetraining #athletedevelopment #physicaltherapy #sportsinjury #crossfit #sportsmedicine#sportsrehab #baseball #athletictraining #sportscience #sandlottotheshow #fitnessmodel #fit #athleticperformance
