High Point Wellness Centre (HPWC) has been providing clinical services for athletes, amateur and pro, since 1977. Our success if reflected in the impressive achievements of our athletes. With HPWC’s sports specific training and clinical support, athlete and teams are guided in their unique journey to peak performance. HPWC is committed to clinical excellence that is catered to meet the individual specific needs of each athlete. Our Sports Performance Program is designed to decrease the athletes risk of injury and optimize the individual and/or team performance. The program consists of 3 stages:
1. ASSESSMENT: HPWC uses the Athletic Movement Assessment (AMA) protocol, which is designed to identify injury risk, performance directives, and strength and conditioning priorities. These sport specific movement screens help identify muscles weakness, flexibility issues, joint problems, and aberrant movement patterns that may result in injury or decreased performance. By identifying these imbalances, it allows for proper sport specific correction.
2. ANALYSIS: All of the data and information gathered in the Assessment will be thoroughly analyzed by the HPWC team of clinicians using the AMA protocol. This protocol has been developed and adopted through the synthesis of the sport specific scientific literature and decades of clinical experience.
3. ACTION: During the communication of findings, recommendations will be made in order to correct any dysfunctions and identify areas of suboptimal performance. Recommendations may include: sport specific stretches, exercises, physical rehab services and/or motor pattern training
