“Optimizing human movement and performance, promoting longevity, and keeping your movement system in tune. Instilling new meaning into Physical Therapy.”
Normally when you think of the term “physical therapy”, what comes to mind? Learning to walk again after a car crash? Recovering from surgery? The standard physical therapy model normally entails rehabilitation after injury. Now, could those same injuries have been prevented? Could that surgery have been avoided? What if you could optimize your human movement system to perform at its peak all the time?
We, The Prehab Guys, want to instill new meaning into the term physical therapy. Physical therapy is the key to preventative rehabilitation, or “PREHAB” for short. Physical therapists are human movement consultants. In order to take care of our bodies, we humans seeks dentists for oral hygiene, physicians for internal medicine, and eye doctors to preserve our vision. Movement is just another pillar in which care must be given as well.
We are The Prehab Guys, a group of Doctor of Physical Therapy students who you can follow and communicate with regarding your movement system. Our mission is to provide accurate information to help you move better to decrease you risk of injury.
