Return To Sport – What Is It?

At Tensegrity, our Return to Sport test was designed to evaluate the biomechanical readiness of an athlete to see if they are ready to return to recreational or competitive sports participation after a surgery or an injury. We utilize state of the art technology, rather than solely a surgical protocol, to determine an athlete‚Äôs ability to return to sport safely. This is comprised of a biomechanical assessment, Biodex strength testing, force plate and high-speed video cameras for sport-specific movements, and running/walking analysis. 

Our main goal with our Return to Sport testing is to prevent re-injury. We test our Return To Sport patients to ensure that they have the strength, stability, flexibility, and symmetry to perform their sport to the best of their ability, pain, and injury-free. After the Return to Sport test is complete, we then use that information to develop a patient-specific training plan and/or programs to help patients return to sport.
