Return to Play Assessment
We are working with Athletico to provide a free, in-depth jump assessment for athletes in the return to play phase of physical therapy. We use the gold-standard for vertical jump assessments, the Hawkin Dynamics dual-force plate system. This measurement system provides in-depth insight into speed, power, and strength metrics, as well as deficiencies in these areas comparing the injured leg to the healthy one.
The assessment includes single leg vertical jumping and reactive jumping, double leg vertical jumping and reactive jumping, and single strength test.
Each athlete that performs the assessment will get an individualized report that showcases both performance and asymmetry metrics that relate to on court/field athleticism.
Athletes will gain a better understanding about where they stand athletically compared to those their same age and gender, how their injury has impacted their asymmetry from the right side to left side, and what their athletic development training should prioritize moving forward.
