With the arrival of Spring in Missoula, the youth soccer season is now in full swing! As mentioned in earlier blogs, Alpine Physical Therapy has recently teamed up with the Missoula Strikers soccer club. Along with offering free 15 minute consultations to all Strikers players, Alpine personnel will also presenting a short “injury-prevention and proper warm-up technique” sessions to the Striker’s coaches.
One of our PT’s will attend each team’s practice and take the players through a 20-30 minute warm-up session while educating the coaches and players on proper jumping technique, running form and warm-up techniques that will help prevent ankle, knee, and other lower extremity injuries.
Additionally, Alpine is developing a training periodization model to guide coaches on the amount of volume and quality of the soccer workload the players are subject to through the course of a season. The soccer scene in Missoula is booming, and Alpine Physical Therapy is actively interested in helping with this growth!
