How Tyler practices: Looking for a physical therapist who understands your active lifestyle? Dr. Tyler Baca, DPT, uses strength and conditioning as a foundation to get you back to the activities you love the most! His practice revolves around developing strong movement patterns to assist healing and prevent future injuries.
What: Injuries can arise from jumping into too much too fast or going through movement patterns that we have not done since last summer. Our in house PHYSIO office offers Prehab sessions to address mobility and strength challenges that surround the upcoming summer activities. Take advantage of the opportunity to work with our physical therapy department to reduce the risk of injury in the upcoming season.
Maybe you are looking to take up long distance running or hiking this summer but have a history of wonky knee or low back pain. Maybe you are gearing up for golf or softball but you have a history of shoulder pain with rotational sports.
What We Offer: The Prehab appointment offers a chance to go over exercises that will strengthen muscles to support your individual sport. Additionally, your appointment may be a good fit following a big weekend of activity in order to massage, stretch, and lengthen the muscles that are primary movers in your specific sport or hobby. Physio appointment is for athletes who have experienced a re-injury or new injury and are looking to rehab through strengthening and conditioning, movement correction and stabilization and manual therapy.
