A Range of Pre- and Post- Activity Recovery Service

Our Elite Performance Therapy physical therapists and dietitians offer body composition assessments, one-on-one nutritional consultations and a range of pre- and post- activity recovery services, including:

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a treatment in which a thin filiform needle, one without medication, is inserted through the skin and into a taut band of skeletal muscle, which triggers a neurophysiologic effect. This treatment has been shown to reduce pain and improve range of motion.

Recovery: NormaTec Compression

NormaTec PULSE Technology is based on normal physiology, and it synergistically combines three distinctive massage techniques to speed the body’s normal recovery process: pulsing compression, gradients, and distal release. This will lead to reduced pain sensitivity and decreased muscle fatigue.

Recovery: Gameready Multi-modality Therapy Unit

The multi-modality therapy unit uses iceless cold, controllable heat, rapid contrast and active compression therapy to reduce pain, control swelling, encourage circulation and improve range of motion for injuries, postsurgery recovery and rehabilitation.

Myofascial Release

Trauma, inflammation and decreased mobility of tissue called fascia can lead to pain, tension and limitations in your body. We assess and release this tension using manual therapy, vibration therapy, cupping and instrument-assisted soft tissue massage.

Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation Training (PBFR)

PBFR is a therapy in which an individual trains with a wide, contoured cuff placed around the proximal thigh, completely restricting venous flow, and reducing arterial blood flow. This technique is very effective for post-operative rehabilitation for improving muscle strength and hypertrophy.


Whole body cryotherapy is a procedure that exposes the body to temperatures down to -184 for three minutes. This treatment is used to reduce inflammation and muscle pain, as well as improve circulation, and recovery after.
