Performance therapy is a proactive approach to help improve overall strength and health to promote injury prevention and longevity of their bodies.

  • Form Assessment

What is Performance Therapy?

Performance therapy is a combination of movement assessments, strength training and corrective exercises to restore, optimize and enhance one’s performance.

You will work closely along with a health care practitioner who has a strong background in strength training to help you reach your fitness and rehabilitative goals. Performance therapy can also help you recover from an ailment or any physical condition that may hinder your day to day activities.

The overall aim is to reduce risk of injury, enhance function and performance, facilitate recovery and improve your general fitness and well-being. Performance therapy is for anyone that wants to maximize their physical potential and rehab any pains and/or injuries.

Benefits of Performance Therapy

Improving your overall strength and endurance: a combination of strength and conditioning will help strengthen the muscles and other connective tissue that will help enhance your overall performance/recovery as well as decreasing your overall risk of injury.

Improving your mobility and flexibility: mobility is your body’s ability to move within a certain range of motion. A lack of mobility will cause different areas of the body to compensate and work harder than it needs to. By improving your mobility, it will allow you to freely move without pain and/or any limitations.

Injury prevention and longevity: performance therapy sessions will help target different elements of fitness such as your strength, power, balance, agility, stability as well as your cardiovascular system to ultimately help you become the strongest version of yourself.

How Does Performance Therapy Work?

Personalized form assessment: a personalized form assessment will be conducted during your first session to find any limitations and/or restrictions that may be holding you back. This can vary from assessing your deadlift under load to simply evaluating your joint’s mobility by analyzing your squat form and technique.

Strength and conditioning: a series of different strength and conditioning exercises will be performed to help build your strength/performance and improve your exercise proficiency. Expect a combination of different intensity and volume repetition schemes to help you further excel and challenge the different energy systems.

Corrective exercises and mobility drills: a series of different exercises and drills will also be included to help promote your recovery and minimize any body pains and aches. Stretching and mobilizing will help keep your body flexible and mobile to promote joint health and function and prepare you for your next workout.

Who is Performance Therapy for?

Performance therapy is for anybody wanting to improve their overall strength and may be experiencing any physical ailments and/or dysfunction that are limiting them from performing an activity properly and pain free.

Whether it is correcting your movement patterns in a particular exercise (hip shifting in a squat, etc) or simply building more strength and endurance for injury prevention, performance therapy is for anybody that wants to promote longevity in their sport or improve their quality of life.

You do not need to be injured or an athlete to benefit from Performance Therapy.

As a chiropractor that also struggles with chronic pain myself, James is the best strengthening coach I've found to help with my ongoing pain problems. His solid knowledge about structural stability and mobility has opened my eyes about the role that rehab plays in therapy and in fitness. James is also super creative with exercise prescription, his instruction are easy to follow and results are immediate. Learning from him has made me healthier in my body and even made me a better chiropractor in my own practice. Highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for easy to follow solutions to your rehab needs in a relaxed clinic environment

My experience over the last few months with Lu Strength & Therapy have been truly phenomenal. Lu is extremely personable and an infinite source of knowledge. The attention to detail that comes with the treatment with the added transparency creates such great experience keeping me excited to come back! The take home strength and mobility workouts Lu uniquely curates for you are very enjoyable and highly effective. After years of jumping between various practitioners and my shoulder problems only exponentially worsening, within 2 appointments I felt confident that Lu’s approach would get me to where I needed to be and few months later, I was correct. To add, the appointment pricing to time spent with Lu has been better than anywhere else I’ve been. I genuinely couldn’t recommend a facility more!

The facility is clean, comfortable, and spacious. There is a wealth of resources and equipment for treatment and exercise. Rudy is very positive and professional. He is very knowledgable and gives insightful recommendations based off of research and his own personal experiences. James is well versed in prehab, rehab, movement, sports, and massage therapy. He is great at communicating his ideas and also follows up with exercise plans and programming. I've highly enjoyed all my visits and I recommend Lu Strength and Therapy to my friends and family.
