COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT

Head to toe breakdown of what you need

COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT

Head to toe breakdown of what you need

IT ALL STARTS WITH A BASELINE

Stop guessing. Start improving.

The developmental needs of an elite baseball player far exceed those of his peers. The truly dedicated pitcher trying to get drafted, land a scholarship or move up a level in professional baseball requires more insight than ‘your hips are tight’ & ‘get your elbow up’. They need more than just randomly prescribed mobility exercises, throwing programs, and poorly thought out soft tissue work. The dedicated don’t just walk into a training facility and think “what should I do today?” The depth, attention to detail and scope of our comprehensive assessment was built to identify exactly what an elite player needs. Zeroing in on what’s preventing you from reaching your goals is always step #1.

THE PROCESS

The starting point for every journey is to know exactly where you stand at the simplest level. Our assessment begins with a thorough on table Functional Range Assessment ® to identify any joint limitations. You can think of this as taking a ‘joint inventory’. If we have an idea of what each joint can handle in isolation, we can build a better appreciation of what they can handle cumulatively.

MOVEMENT ASSESSMENT

Our on table assessment is coupled with a movement analysis to see how the player co-ordinates multiple joints together. For example, looking at how a pitcher couples their hip and spinal motion in different positions.

MOVEMENT ASSESSMENT

Our on table assessment is coupled with a movement analysis to see how the player co-ordinates multiple joints together. This movement analysis was developed to identify points of compensation or dysfunction. For example, looking at how a pitcher moves their hip and spine to accomplish rotation in stable positions gives us insight into how they might rotate in a more complex motion like pitching.

STRENGTH, POWER & SPEED

The next step is to use a number of strength, power and speed tests to identify where an athlete stands relative to their goals. Finding out where an athlete lies on the force-velocity curve is of paramount interest to us and helps differentiate training needs.

PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT

Finally, we will perform an in depth performance assessment of your sport specific skill – throwing, hitting or running. This key piece helps identify movement inefficiencies so that the appropriate technical changes can be made. Things like exit velocity, throwing velocity, spin rate, and efficiency will all be measured so that we know where you stand.

INTEGRATION

Where our assessment stands out is in the integration of our findings. Our understanding of movement, mechanics and strength & conditioning allows us to pick out weaknesses, areas for improvement and determine the proceeding course of action.

If you don’t have a plan on how to get better, you’re going to spinning your tires and wasting time.
