The American Physical Therapy Association recommends annual check ups with a physical therapist as a preventative health measure. Just like you see your dentist or doctor one to two times a year, it is a great idea to see a physical therapist yearly even if you are not currently having pain. In fact, by coming in to Girl Fit for an annual check up, you could catch a potential injury before it happens! This is especially important when teenagers are experiencing rapid growth spurts as strength, flexibility, and coordination can change significantly during these years. The annual check up at Girl Fit covers whole body strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance testing. Any areas of asymmetry or weakness will be thoroughly explained and you will be given exercises to address our findings in order to optimize your strength and flexibility. It would be beneficial to schedule an annual check up before starting a new activity or sport to make sure you prepare your body adequately for the change. Make sure you are starting off the new year on the right foot and schedule an annual check up today! Let us help you make 2020 your best, and strongest, year yet!
