One of my current physical therapy patients is a player for the San Jose Jr Sharks, so as he returns to workouts and practice I made a visit to the rink this Saturday to meet his strength coaches and see him skate.
A good transition from rehab to elite performance is essential in order to reduce the chance of re-injury. This is only possible with a sports medicine team approach.
Big thanks to Justin Maskell and the other strength coaches for the Jr. Sharks for welcoming me to their workout and listening to my input on how to help their athlete. I definitely learned a few things to improve the strength and conditioning workouts for the Miami Toros Hockey Club.
