INJURED AND MISSING RACES TO TYING PR’S

This is Hans, and he has great handwriting.

All jokes aside, Hans first came in with knee pain that limited him with running. As a cross country and track athlete, that was pretty important.

He was sitting out his senior year of track because of this pain, and he was nervous that he would miss the entire season.

After our evaluation, we reassured him that he would be back this year. We gave him a clear plan on how to strengthen his knee and build his running pace back to race pace.

He put in the work and was able to return faster than expected, and he even tied his PR in his first race back!

We love helping athletes get back to doing what they love pain free. If you or someone you know is looking for sports specific physical therapy, give us a call. We would love to help!

FROM SCHEDULING SHOULDER SURGERY TO PAIN-FREE THROWING

When Noah first came to us, he had pain throwing 50 miles an hour and was told that he would need shoulder surgery. As someone who was throwing mid 80’s previously, this was a huge setback. He was dejected and upset that he would likely miss his spring baseball season.

After we completed our evaluation, we identified areas to work on and address his deficits. We emphasized shoulder strength, stability, and scapular control. We slowly built his throwing velocity over the span of the months we worked together to get him back to max effort without pain.

By the end of our rehab, he was doing max effort pulldowns pain-free and was able to get back to his spring baseball season without limitations!

We love helping our athletes stay on the field and avoid surgeries. If you or someone you know is looking for sports specific physical therapy, give us a call. We would love to help.

PATIENT SUCCESS STORIES

We love helping our athletes in their journey back onto the field at 100%!

All of these athletes came in frustrated with their injuries and looking for guidance on how to get back to their sport without pain.

How did we help them?

The most important piece is the evaluation, where we complete a comprehensive assessment of where an athlete is and where they need to get to in order to return to their sport.

Once we have an idea of their limitations, we clearly provide a game plan to get them back on track, and empower the athletes to continue with their sport within the limitations of their injury.

So many of our athletes were told “just rest 6 weeks and don’t do anything.” This is not a solution.

If this sounds like your experience, reach out to us through our website or our link in bio and we would love to help you get back to your sport pain-free!

FEELING DOOMED FOR TJ, TO 90+ MPH IN 4 MONTHS

When Jace came to see us for his evaluation, he had elbow pain with throwing and he was certain that he would need Tommy John surgery and miss an entire year of baseball.

We were able to help get him in to see the right sports medicine physician, he was assessed by them, and we collaborated to get him a good game plan together to avoid surgery.

Our PT assessment revealed some limitations that could be addressed to decrease stress on his elbow, and we got to work.

We worked on grip strength, shoulder range of motion, and thoracic mobility to improve his throwing efficiency and decrease elbow torque.

Over the span of 2 months, he ramped up his throwing intensity, using his radar gun to measure throwing velocity and make sure he wasn’t overdoing it.

This resulted in him sitting 88 mph and topping out at 90 mph in his last bullpen, WITH NO ELBOW PAIN.

Incredibly proud of this guy and his hard work to get back to this point.

If you are a baseball player dealing with pain, reach out ASAP. Throwing shouldn’t hurt, and it’s not normal. Let’s get a game plan together to get you throwing pain-free.

FROM ANKLE SURGERY TO PAIN-FREE SPORTS!

When Suzie first came to us, she was still in her boot following her ankle surgery.

She was in pain, frustrated, and nervous that she wouldn’t be able to get back to her previous activities.

She had friends who had been to PT after injuries and were never able to get back to their sport, and she figured she was doomed for the same fate.

Luckily, she wasn’t doomed.

After lots of hard work with Dr. Emily, Suzie is back to running, jumping, and playing her sport without pain! Great work Suzie!

We have helped hundreds of athletes get back to their sport pain-free, including those who were told they would never get back to where they were.

If you are looking to get back to your sport pain-free, send us a DM. We would love to help you!

We love this quote from the 🐐 . A thrower’s arm is vitally important to them, and they must take care of it appropriately.

Unfortunately, not all rehab professionals understand the importance of the thrower’s arm. We’ve seen it all.

“My last therapist discharged me 6 weeks after my Tommy John surgery because I had all of my motion back.”

“I was told to stop pitching for good to avoid hurting my arm.”

“I didn’t get a throwing program.”

All could have been avoided by finding an experienced sports PT.

Don’t make the same mistakes our past patients have. If you have pain in your arm during your sport, reach out so that we can you get back to 100%!

MEET THE TEAM

With a few new faces here on the profile, we figured it would be a good time to reintroduce the people behind the business!

Dr. Nathan “Nate” Harris is the owner and founder of Velocity Sports Physical Therapy. Dr. Nate is a physical therapist, athletic trainer, and strength coach who specializes in treating athletes. He has spent time working in both the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks, and the MLB with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Dr. Nate started Velocity Sports PT with the mission to bring professional level sports rehab to lowcountry middle school, high school, and adult athletes. Too often he had witnessed athletes go back to sports without proper treatment and gotten reinjured. He sought to change that and provide individual, sport specific, high quality rehab to the greater Charleston area. In the past two-plus years, we at Velocity have been fortunate enough to have 100+ athletes trust us with their care in getting them back on the field better, faster, and stronger!

Stay tuned next week for more of the team!

⚾️RETURN TO SPORT TESTING⚾️

🙌 This is an example of our return to sport/throwing analysis that we do very frequently here at Velocity Sports PT. It is a blend of a sport specific strength assessment, range of motion assessment, throwing analysis, and functional testing. What you see above is the report card that summarizes our evaluation into one cohesive document that is sent to the athlete after completion of the testing. This is incredibly valuable for an athlete to determine what areas they are deficient in and can be areas of focus moving forward. We often do this at the end of an athlete’s throwing progression back from injury to give them a better game plan moving forward, or as a one-time assessment for athletes who are not coming to see us for an injury, but instead just want to make sure they are putting themselves in the best position to succeed!

🏈 This can also be done for multiple sports and multiple injuries, not just thrower’s shoulder or elbow injuries. Knee injuries, hip injuries, ankle injuries from soccer, football, basketball athletes are just a few of the things we have helped people get back on the field from using our comprehensive evaluation!

Tommy John isn’t just for baseball players! Our sports specific rehab means that although the surgery is the same as the ones baseball players receive, this cheerleaders rehab looked nothing like what we traditionally do for our baseball players.

Inside The Clinic: Pulse

The process of throwing places lots of stress throughout the body, and this will depend on a lot of different factors (individual anatomy, throwing mechanics, fatigue, etc). Although stress is commonly used as a negative, stress can be positive. Think of how someone gets stronger after working out; you place stress on a muscle/body part, and your body adapts and recovers stronger than it was previously. This stress can lead to positive adaptation. But stress can be a negative for an athlete that is under-prepared, fatigued, or overworked.

But how do you know if you are under-prepared, fatigued, or overworked? What if there was a way to figure out what areas of the body are being placed under more stress, specifically the elbow? Driveline’s wearable device, Pulse, is a fantastic device that allows us here at Velocity to quantify workload/stress.

Pulse is a small device that is placed in an arm strap that the athlete wears while throwing. Pulse can provide real time feedback on an athlete's arm speed, arm angle, and elbow torque. As you would expect, elbow torque will increase as arm speed increases, but this should be at a relatively constant rate.

Arguably one of Pulse’s best features is the ability to track arm and elbow stress over time, and give the athlete a recommended workload for that day.

This is extremely helpful for us at Velocity when an athlete is coming back from a UCL injury. It provides us information on how to safely progress an athlete’s throwing intensity and volume. If they have more than average elbow stress during their throwing program, we can make mechanical adjustments to determine their effect on the stress on the elbow.

There are all sorts of throwing programs circulating the internet and within physician groups, but not all of them are able to meet the individual needs of the athlete. If you are rehabbing back to throwing from an injury, make sure that you have a way to track your intensity, and make sure that you are getting the assessment and plan that works best for YOU! Schedule your assessment with us and get back on track to playing and feeling your best!

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE VELOCITY SPORTS PT?

It is standard to find the best physician and drive to go see them for your injury. It’s usual to find a personal trainer who works with your sport. Then why has it become standard to go to the physical therapist that is closest to your house? Just because it’s convenient doesn’t mean it’s the best for you, and why choose what is convenient when it comes to your health?

Not all PT’s are qualified or equipped to work with athletes, and this is because not all PT’s have experience working with different sports. To borrow a phrase from Eric Cressey: You wouldn’t bring your Ferrari to a Prius mechanic, so don’t bring your 90+ mph arm to someone who has never worked with a thrower. Don’t settle for the PT that’s right next to your house if they have never worked with athletes from your sport. Come see us at Velocity Sports PT! (Shoutout to for the assist on the graphic)

PATIENT SPOTLIGHT

David is one of our inaugural Velocity Sports PT patients, and he has worked hard to get back to his competitive softball tournaments! He has bought in to the process and showed up every session ready to WORK! He came to us years after an initial knee injury that never got back to 100%. He couldn’t squat without significant knee pain, walked with a limp, and was just about ready to give up on softball. Today, he has full range of motion in his knee, equal strength in his legs, and is able to run and play softball pain free! He has also gotten serious about his overall health and lost over 80 pounds since the start of 2021! He is a beast, and an awesome dude to work with!

SHARING PATIENT’S SUCCESS

With baseball season ramping up, it’s important to have your body primed and ready to go for the season ahead. Injury occurs when your sport demands exceeds your capacity, and going from no throwing to throwing daily can be a large increase in activity that your body may not be ready for. All of these guys have been diligent in their rehab to get ready for the season, and are reaping the rewards of hard work and having an individualized plan to get back to baseball.

If you’ve had an injury while playing a sport, don’t get down on yourself because it happened; use it as an opportunity to better yourself and come back stronger and better than before, just like these guys that we’ve been lucky to work with! We’ve worked with D1 pitchers, future D1 pitchers/high school studs, and middle school athletes!

If you haven’t had an injury, GREAT! Let’s keep it that way. Get a sports specific assessment to determine areas you can improve on to decrease injury risk and improve your performance!
