Sports medicine training programs

    If you’re a female athlete in middle school or above, Sportsmetrics™ can help you reduce the risk of a knee injury such as an ACL tear—which is up to 10 times as common in women as in men. During a six-week training program, you’ll learn how to:

    • Develop overall leg strength
    • Perfect your jumping and landing techniques
    • Improve flexibility
    • Safely engage in high-intensity strength training
    • Properly perform sprinting and cutting movements

    If you’ve already experienced a knee injury or surgery, Sportsmetrics’ Return to Play program can help you safely get back to the field, court or anywhere in between.

    You’ll find the area’s only certified Sportsmetrics trainers at Genesis Rehabilitation Services.

    Improve your throwing technique and decrease your risk of injury with guidance from the Genesis Orthopedic Center. A therapist will record you on video, closely examine your throwing motion, and then develop personalized recommendations for safely enhancing your skills.

    Run properly and safely with personalized advice from a certified athletic trainer. You’ll learn how to improve your stride after our thorough physical assessment, computer analysis of your technique and footwear evaluation.
