Chances are, at one point or another, you’ve worried that you aren’t doing enough to help set your daughter up for success in her health and sport.
Oftentimes, parents believe that physical success is contingent on genetics, or that any health complaints will just “sort themselves out”.
That is simply not true. You need a guidepost; a practitioner who can arm your daughter with knowledge about her body, and provide physical support that considers her unique needs as a developing female athlete, in the context of the sports she loves.
This is what will help set the stage for her happy, healthy, lifelong participation in sport.
As a female athlete, there are several times her body is undergoing rapid physical and physiological change. These changes do have an influence on her health, injury risk and sport performance.
When met with the right treatment and training strategies, these periods of transition provide immense opportunity to help her enhance her health, improve her performance, and help her set the stage for lifelong athleticism.
With treatment planning and sport programming that is informed by the anatomy and physiology that makes her unique, we can help her set the stage for greater success, less injury and athletic longevity.
Your daughter needs sport-specific care that considers her unique needs.
EMP's Female Athlete Development Program is a physical therapy and wellness program for female athletes ages 10-30 years. It is designed to provide female athletes with the information they need to make informed decisions about their health and sport, and to provide them with the physical support they need to stay happy, healthy and safe in their sport.
