We are here to get you out of pain so that you can perform at the highest level. At PSP, we take a whole-body approach to addressing pain, movement dysfunction, and performance. Our goal is to keep you participating, performing, and competing in (insert your activity here). During your initial visit you’ll undergo an extensive evaluation to determine the root cause of dysfunction. Finding the cause of your pain is key. There are no Band-Aids, only solutions. You’ll be given corrective exercises individualized to your particular needs. You’ll be given manual therapy to improve tissue extensibility, decreased pain, improve range of motion, and increase neurological output. Follow-up visits will be performed until you meet your goals and exceed expectations.

Due to our affiliation with Major League Baseball (MLB), Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), Mobility WOD, Functional Movement Systems (FMS), and The Titleist Performance Institute, we have access to the most current evidenced based practices to get you out of pain, back to sport fast, and keep you moving.

Your plan will be a customized approach collaborating with your coaches to provide an integrated treatment plan to get you back to performing at your highest level. Services are provided onsite at Deep Blue to solidify your return to the highest level of function and performance.
