It can be frustrating when an injury or significant illness impacts your physical abilities. Whether you’re in pain just trying to do housework or can’t play your favorite sport anymore, a clinical exercise program with a corrective exercise technique can help you return to your activities or protect against more severe injuries.

About clinical exercise

Clinical exercise is an ideal way to work out if you are recovering from an injury or have a health condition. If you have noticed physical challenges due to obesity, cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, cardiovascular issues or other health conditions, a clinical exercise program may help restore your previous function or lessen pain.

Additionally, if you have completed physical therapy after a serious injury but are still not performing your best, you may want to take advantage of one of our bridge programs. We offer these for ACL injuries, upper extremity injuries and concussion recovery, among others. Even if you don’t use a formal bridge program, working with one of our fitness and exercise specialists can help you continue to make progress after physical therapy ends.

Clinical exercise offerings

Our approach is rooted in corrective exercise. Corrective exercise is a technique that examines your movement patterns, balance, posture and strength. Corrective exercise is particularly helpful to increase your flexibility, stability, balance, coordination and strength. It is a relatively new way to assess and train.

Our specialists can design a program that will decrease stress on your body and reduce the risk of injuries. Your program will be highly customized and include medically based training.

  • This 6-week program is designed to help athletes develop proper skills for reducing their risk of ACL and other sport-related injuries. This program targets youth and high school athletes and includes a video analysis of jumping and landing patterns, individualized progressive strength training and education on proper warmup prior to training and competition.

  • Overhead motions, such as pitching, throwing, serving, spiking and swimming, demand incredible control of the upper extremities. This 6-week program focuses on reducing the risk of shoulder, elbow and other sport-related injuries commonly seen in overhead athletes. Participants will learn and develop the proper skills and techniques to enhance their movements and improve their performance. Athletes who swim or play baseball, softball, volleyball or tennis can benefit from this program.

  • No matter your age, sport or skill level, you will receive treatment like a professional athlete. These 1-on-1 appointments will ensure you receive the care and attention you need to get back to performing your best. Our care includes the use of a variety of therapies, including manual therapy, rehabilitative exercise and transition into sports performance training. 30-, 45- and 60-minute appointments available.

  • Sustaining a concussion can be devastating to an athlete. This 6-week program, developed by sports medicine experts at The University of Kansas Health System, is designed for middle school and high school athletes who want to reduce their risk of concussion and improve sports performance. Participants will focus on agility, balance and reaction skills, neck and core muscle strength, vision training and spatial awareness.

  • Whether the athlete's goal is to prolong their career, increase performance or simply play pain-free golf, training programs improve driver distance, clubhead speed, accuracy and reduce the rate of injuries experienced by golfers on all skill levels.

    • Evaluation: A one-time, 60-minute evaluation that includes a Titleist Performance Institute screening, K-Vest 3D motion swing analysis, personalized exercise routine and dynamic warmup routine.
    • Golf-Specific Strength Training: Training sessions are designed to address individual areas of weakness and improve upon strengths as they relate to the golf swing. These classes will improve fitness and supplement your current golf routine.
  • Metabolic performance testing, also known as VO2 max, measures the highest amount of oxygen your body uses during exercise, specifically at maximum exertion. A performance assessment includes a comprehensive evaluation by a trained professional. It identifies your baseline performance, ventilatory threshold and maximum heart rate response. It also provides recommendations for heart rate-based training thresholds and identifies benchmarks to enhance your training goals.

  • Regular running can result in injuries, and a significant percentage of runners are injured annually. A running gait analysis can identify running inefficiencies. This information is key to improving running performance and preventing potential injuries. Our team of trained professionals will look at every aspect of your running form. With the use of the Qualisys 3D Motion Capture System, we can evaluate your biomechanics and compare them to elite runner standards, help improve your performance and reduce your risk of injury. Whether you are looking to improve overall performance or have been sidelined due to injury, let our experts help you achieve your goals.

To schedule a free assessment, email or call 913-239-0646.

Any imbalances, faulty movements, poor posture or other issues identified in the assessment will be addressed in a corrective exercise plan. If you’re interested in working with us on that plan, you’ll be given purchase options. Each person will have a customized number of sessions. Additionally, you could participate in our group classes.
