Double Play Program
Working with you to prevent injury, maximize performance, and return to sport
The Double Play Program was developed by Mike Gaddini, a sports physical therapist and certified strength and conditioning specialist, to combine the best in both injury reduction strategies and performance enhancement. The program is based on proven scientific methods and the latest theories in sports medicine to get you performing at your highest level.
Sports injuries have become somewhat of an epidemic in recent years. Statistics show that in high school alone, some 2 million sports injuries result in 500k doctor visits and approximately 30k hospitalizations for treatment each year. Two areas in particular are of great concern: ACL tears and shoulder and elbow injuries in the throwing athlete. Each year, an estimated 200,000 high school and college female athletes will sustain a serious knee ligament injury. In addition, adolescent pitchers who pitched more than 8 months out of the year were 5 times more likely to sustain an elbow or shoulder injury. These statistics are alarming.
At Apex Physical Therapy, we are experts at helping athletes recover from injuries and return to their sport. Instead of focusing all of our energy on putting people back together, we are also committed to helping healthy athletes minimize their risk of sustaining a debilitating injury altogether. We have been inspired by the work of world-renowned sports medicine doctor James Andrews and the STOP Sports Injuries Campaign to bring you Apex’s Double Play Program.
