The physical therapists of Northern Rockies PT volunteer many hours per year to promote injury prevention and sport enhancement in Missoula schools and recreational programs.
Recently, Kristin Green, DPT, OCS, and Annie Gayvert, DPT, met with the Big Sky High School cross country team. They developed a runner’s strength and flexibility screen and tested members of the team individually. The athletes were then instructed in the most appropriate warm-up, strengthening and stretching exercises according to the assessment results. Exercises were recommended in an effort to reduce the rate of injury or re-injury and to enhance running performance.
Other outreach clinics put on by Northern Rockies Physical Therapy have included:
- Youth Soccer
- Missoula Mavericks, Mount Sentinel Little League, Avalanche Softball
- UM Lady Griz Volleyball and Basketball Summer Camps
Our Therapists are available to conduct special training sessions for your athletic group. They can tailor an exercise program that readies your participants for whatever athletic challenges they may have so we can help you GET BACK OUT THERE!
