Return To Play Assessment
RTP is the decision-making process our team follows for returning an injured athlete to practice and/or competition. Our reason behind this is that adhering to this process is what eventually leads to a full medical clearance for a safe return to your sport. Our team works closely with POA’s physicians and other local referring physicians to protect the well-being of every athlete we treat, as well as make sure we continually adhere to our established RTP process. From our initial evaluation and treatment to the your return to practice, competition or the field, we stay focused on one goal – safely getting you back out there and back to your sport
Functional Performance Testing & Assessment
At PRC this program enables athletes at every stage of their game to gain a better understanding of their current fitness level and to build a plan for optimizing their performance. Our program begins with an evaluation of your current fitness level and works with you to identify any deficiencies or areas for improvement
Our program includes evaluations for the following:
- Linear Speed
- Change of Direction
Each evaluation above is then used to help us build individualized performance enhancement programs for our patients at PRC, as well as continue to measure their ongoing improved performance.

Our programs have been designed to use various assessment criteria and testing as a way to help athletes at every level gain that extra edge and improve their speed, power, strength, and agility, or the return to optimal performance after being injured on or off the field.
