injury prevention FOR long term athletic success
Injury Prevention Project
FOR ALL SPORTS, ACTIVITIES, & AGES
We strongly believe that it is easier to stop something happening in the first place than to repair the damage after it has happened.
Tearing the ACL, as an example, often leads to either other injuries, arthritis, or both. We help people maintain optimal levels of athletic performance while preventing common injuries.
To do this, we offer several research-based sports injury prevention programs that target specific muscles, joints, and movements to reduce the risk of common injuries. If you’re ready to get serious about active recovery, you’re in the right place!
What Others Are Saying
My experience with David was excellent. After sustaining a 3rd ACL injury, I had lost much of my confidence and was very cautious with any movement. As an athlete, I needed to get this back as soon as possible. David worked with me to help not only with strengthening my knee, but also with restoring my confidence. By introducing various sport specific activities, including power lifts and plyometrics, I was able to ease my way back in a controlled environment, so when I completed my therapy, I was ready to get back to athletics with the necessary confidence to succeed.
I began working with David in 2003 to rehab an injury sustained while training for an NFL try out. Since then, I’ve been seeing him off and on as needed over the past many years. As my athletic endeavors changed from football to mixed martial arts, I found David to be accommodating in his approach to my rehab. The list of injuries that he has helped is extensive; IT band attachment, hamstring tear, broken hand, ankle impingement, broken foot and a torn abdominal to name a few. Each time David focuses not only on returning me back to my normal life, but making sure that I don’t lose anything athletically as a result of the injury. Most times, the injured part ends up being stronger and more functional than before the injury occurred.
David Potach is one of the best sports training and rehab minds I have run across in my 15 years as a competitive athlete and his information and training methods are always on the cutting edge of science. Over the course of the six years I’ve had a relationship with David, I have referred in several friends and loved ones to him and will continue to do so without reservation. Thanks for everything you’ve done for me David.
I am a marathoner & have been working with David for several years now for my minor running injuries. Not only has David helped me to get back to regular training, he is also an athlete who provides physical stretching & exercising as well as advice for cross training & other activities. With his expertise, I have learned a lot about challenging myself without overdoing my running. Over time, I have become a better and more consistent runner and have stayed away from many of the smaller injuries that had been much more frequent a few years ago. I attribute much of this success to the help & the things I have learned from David. I trust his experience & advice to strengthen me to get back to my training when I am injured. The best example I can give to this is preparing for the Boston Marathon & I got a heel injury about 8 weeks before the race. The timing was horrible, but I worked with David on a program to calm the inflammation, strengthen it & work my way back into running. I took it all on faith that they knew what they were doing & that marathon turned out to be my best Boston Marathon up to that point. I look forward to continuing to work with David.
My experience was more than I could ask for. David and his team were so helpful and educated, I always knew I was in good hands. I’ve never worked with someone as helpful and I knew my main goal was his number one priority. I would definitely suggest David to anybody who asked my opinion!.
The time and effort you have put into my growth and intelligence as a plyer and a person is beyond anything I could have asked for. I am ten times stronger and faster than when I arrived.
A straightforward, easy process
Learning the right exercises to reduce injury risk is important. But a plan to safely progress those exercises while also instilling consistent exercise is essential. Our programs do just that. By signing up and following our step-by-step approach, preventing injuries is just a click away.
Our goal is to teach athletes how to prevent sports injuries.
We believe the best way to do that is through the use of video. We have compiled a library of hundreds of exercise videos to do just that. Check out this video for an example of some of our videos.
