Sports Injury Prevention
Estimates show that there are between 500,000 and 750,000 new sports injuries each year in the United States. The majority of sports injuries occur in young healthy individuals in non-contact sports. Changes in acceleration, deceleration, or direction, as well as over-use cause the majority of injuries. Comprehensive sports injury prevention programs not only reduce the risk of injury, but also increase sports performance through body awareness.
Our Sports Injury Prevention Programs in Broomfield (Denver) focus on:
- Strength, power, speed development
- Improving muscle imbalances
- Proper body mechanics
- Drills to help dynamic recovery of balance & control (neuromuscular control)
- Improving awareness of body in space (proprioception)

Are your athletes getting the best medical care possible?
We are offering a complete concussion program that will train your coaches how to identify and handle a possible concussion situation, help protect your athletes in the incidence that they do sustain a concussion, meet the legal requirements for the best return to play situation possible, and make sure your club is in compliance with the JAKE SNAKENBERG YOUTH CONCUSSION ACT.
Anchor Physical Therapy’s Sports Injury Prevention Program is offering a Concussion Recognition Education Course for coaches. After completion, your coaches will be certified and in compliance with the “Jake Snakenburg Youth Concussion Act” and possess the knowledge and skills needed to handle a possible concussion situation.
Preparing for Injury
While concussions are more common in some sports, concussions can and do occur in every sport. It is estimated that between 1,500 and 2,500 youth athletes visit Colorado emergency rooms for sports-related concussions each year.
What sets Anchor’s program apart is our baseline or pre-season evaluation which is an essential part of the concussion management process. These tests allow the medical staff to quickly and effectively evaluate an athlete who has sustained a concussion and create the best return to play scenario for them. Our comprehensive baseline testing allows for a full view of an athlete’s mental status prior to the sports season.
