Who can benefit from a BikeFit
The McKenzie Method (MDT; Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy) was developed by Robin McKenzie from New Zealand. This method is designed to identify mechanical problems and is a systematic approach to decreasing pain by improving movement dysfunction. Our physical therapists, Ellen Grover and Anne Bower are both certified in the Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT) through the McKenzie Institute International (MII). If you would like to learn more, or are interested in the McKenzie Method please watch the video, visit their website, or schedule an appointment.
Athletic Performance Screening
The physical therapy staff at Broadway Physical Therapy has designed a screening program for teams or individuals interested in injury prevention and improving athletic performance.
The assessment is made up of seven individual tests that assess strength, flexibility, static/dynamic balance, foot type, and body alignment while jumping. The assessment is designed to identify predisposing muscle length and strength imbalances which have been shown to place athletes at a higher risk for injury and may diminish performance.
After the screen in completed each athlete will be provided with an analysis of his or her results from a Physical Therapist. Specific exercises and suggestions will be provided depending on the areas where deficiencies were noted in the screen. Team coaches will be provided with a detailed summary of the teams results.
