Integrating Correction with Alignment in Neutral
The I.C.A.N. Sports & Fitness Program is designed to specifically work with athletes to reduce restrictions and muscle inhibitions in movement. Who hasn’t had muscle tightness that doesn’t go away with stretching? Why is one leg stronger than the other? The longer you play a sport, the stronger the patterns of restriction become until they dominate your ability to move. Injury or pain often occurs. Your body is most efficient if everything is in balance, therefore, performance is improved. This system “reboots” your brain’s perception to its original default neutral so your movement is not defined by the sport. We identify problem areas for the athlete and give them solutions, so you can increase your sports efficiency.
The Benefits Include:
- better muscle recruitment (larger % of muscle contraction)
- decreased joint restriction
- decreased muscle and fascia restriction
- creates better body awareness which allows the athlete to move freely
- peak performance being “in the zone” because they are not fighting their own body to perform their sport

Injury Prevention Programs
Injury prevention? Who wants to think about injuries when you are enjoying your sport? As an athlete or avid exercise buff injury can stop you from doing what you love. If a simple flexibility or alignment self-check can prevent this from happening, why risk it? As physical therapists, we see how an injury can impact not only the sport you are enjoying now but impact movement in the future. Can we predict all injuries? No, but we can identify areas that might be at risk. Our evaluation defines all the areas that commonly get injured in your sport or activity. If you are having pain, let us check you out! The painful area is usually the victim of poor muscle balance, joint alignment, foot mechanics or from insufficient recruitment from previous injuries.
