Physical Therapy


Prime Sports Med RX offers specialized one-on-one physical therapy appointments for its patients. Each treatment session is for one hour of concentrated work with the patient utilizing manual techniques, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular re-education, and therapeutic activities. As described before, Prime Sports Med RX believes in the physical therapy, being physical so most treatments begin with hands-on treatments.

During physical therapy, the patient is progressed through exercises in two distinct phases of treatment. First, "From the Floor to Function" which concentrates on gravity eliminated exercises to work on muscle activation, strength, and stability which then progresses towards standing body weight exercises. And secondly, "From Function to Sport" which advances standing body weight exercises towards the individual's expressed goals of functional movement, exercise program or sports.

Dry Needling


Dry needling is a manual technique used by physical therapists to help reduce the tension in myofascial tissue. A thin, sterile and disposable needle is inserted in the muscle at an area of increased tension called a trigger point. The trigger point is a region in the muscle where the body has responded to some form of a stressor in a spasm.

Normally, when a stressor is removed the spasm decreases but in the case of a trigger point, the spasm cycle does not turn off. The trigger point causes increased tension and tenderness in the myofascial region and can cause dysfunction.

When the needle is inserted, it disrupts the spasm cycle and resets the tissue's response in the region. A muscle twitch response is often seen in the area which presents as an involuntary contraction of the muscle.

The insertion of the needle causes other biochemical responses in the muscle but all the results and reactions lead towards releasing the tissue around the trigger point.

The release of the tissue tension also aids in the effectiveness and ability to carry out other manual techniques and soft tissue work. Dry needling can be effective and useful throughout multiple regions of the body.

Contact Prime Sports Med RX with questions about how dry needling might help with your specific condition or injury.

Sports Screening


A pre-participation screen is an essential component of being proactive in injury prevention. Whether you are starting a sports season, an exercise program, or just want a clear picture of your strengths and weaknesses, a sports screen is a smart way of getting recommendations for corrective exercise and the steps to take to prevent future injuries.

The sports screening at Prime Sports Med RX consists of an evaluation of gait (walking and running), posture, range of motion, manual muscle testing and functional movements needed for strength training and sports.

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is also used as it has been proven to identify asymmetries in athletic movement that contribute to injuries. Prime Sports Med RX's comprehensive approach to screening gives a well-rounded look at the individual and helps prepare him or her to progress in training, sports participation, and everyday life.

Contact Prime Sports Med RX to schedule a sports screening or questions about team screenings.

Weight training is an essential part of injury prevention and progression in sports performance. Whether you are finishing physical therapy or trying to improve performance through getting guidance in a strength and stability program, athletic development is a good service to make the advances you are looking to achieve.

"Eight years ago I started running and since then I have run multiple 5ks, three half marathons, a full marathon, and continue to run on a daily basis. On September 28, 2015, I gave birth to my son and I have continued to maintain my active lifestyle. However since having him I've continued to run but was ready to break up the monotony of cardio and wanted to challenge myself in other ways. Once I started working with Brittany I started to see changes quickly. Her training style incorporates many different types of exercise equipment including kettle bells, the TRX suspension trainer and rip trainer, equalizer bars, resistance bands, ropes, medicine balls and more! She teaches you proper lifting technique and creates individualized workouts for you that are challenging but amazing! Her constant encouragement and positive feedback helps power through the tough but worth it workouts! I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to work with Brittany and cannot recommend her enough!" - Stephanie
