ProClinix, with locations in Ardsley, Pleasantville, and Armonk, NY, is more than just a rehabilitation facility. We also offer athletes (from your high school athlete to your weekend warrior), the ability to train in our Sports Performance Bridge Program which partners with state of the art training facilities. Personal trainer Keiran Halton is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and sees clients in our Ardsley location.
We provide a comprehensive program that incorporates proper techniques for warm-up, strengthening, flexibility, endurance, conditioning and training. Our program is designed to reduce the risk of injury and at the same time, improve athletic performance, ensuring the best outcomes for athletes. Our goal is to take athletes with any limitation and help them return to full mobility and strength.
We use a dynamic training model to develop skills and abilities specific to sport performance, mainly speed, agility, and power. We will assess your baseline abilities and customize a program that emphasizes coordination, core strength, and injury prevention.
Sports performance training services aim to help athletes develop good work habits that will allow them to maintain a healthy balance between sports and their personal lives. This is especially beneficial for young athletes who can pick up these valuable skills early on and continue to apply them throughout their athletic career.
Training is specifically geared to each athlete to meet their individual needs and help them achieve their own goals. But there are fundamental tools we teach that all athletes need in order to be successful, including discipline, focus and intelligence. For example, discipline can be improved by devising customized practice programs and helping athletes develop cognitive skills that will enable them to keep to a daily schedule. Feedback is provided so that athletes can be aware of their progress, how the training is improving their performance and what areas they need to work on.
Preventing sports injuries is an important component of sports performance training. Many injuries tend to happen due to inappropriate warm-up techniques and coaching. Below are a list of common sports injuries and ways to prevent them:
The best way to avoid shoulder pain is by keeping fit and doing proper warm up exercises so you can ease into the activity. Proper conditioning is also necessary to prevent overuse injuries.
Athletes, especially tennis players and golfers, need to ensure that they use proper technique and suitable equipment in order to avoid developing elbow pain.
Lower Back Pain
Low back pain is commonly due to the loss in strength and balance in your core muscles as you age, resulting in poor posture, wrong alignment, and pain. You can protect your lower back best by undertaking regular exercise.
Knee injuries are usually due to improper technique, poor flexibility and inadequate conditioning. Correct technique and gradual buildup of training is required to prevent overuse. Also, because biomechanics can play a role in knee injury, suitable footwear and equipment is important for improving alignment and injury prevention.
Ankle Sprains and Strains
There are many causes of ankle injuries, among them are poor technique and uneven ground. Appropriate footwear is essential to avoid sprains, and braces provide extra stability for athletes who have experienced ankle injuries in the past.
Taking into consideration common sports injuries and the specific needs of our athletes, we provide a comprehensive program that incorporates proper techniques for warm-up, strengthening, flexibility, endurance, conditioning and training. Our program is designed to reduce the risk of injury and at the same time, improve athletic performance, ensuring the best outcomes for athletes.
