What are Performance Enhancing Programs?

Performance Enhancing programs are designed specifically for the individual athlete, musician, or artist who is seeking to maximize their potential. Many individuals seek performance-enhancing programs due to injury or pain. Your physical therapist will complete a thorough evaluation to identify any particular soft tissue, joint, nerve or muscle that may be hindering your performance. In addition, agility, endurance, balance and functional analysis may also be performed as necessary to determine what activity specific movements may be limiting an individual’s optimal function. At the completion of the evaluation, your physical therapist will work with the performer to design a rehabilitation program targeted to address the deficits identified during the evaluation.

Your program may include such manual therapy (hands-on) treatment interventions as joint and soft tissue mobilization, dry needling, and exercise prescription to promote recovery and optimizing your targeted activity specific movement.

Stacey is the BEST physical therapist and seeing her for my numerous pains is exactly what I needed. She has done so much to correct my posture, strengthen my back muscles and even correct the curvature in my spine. I know now that much of the pain I am experiencing is from accidents and injuries I had growing up, which have not come to the surface until now. What a blessing to have found Stacey and to be seeing her.


Stacey is the very best at what she does. My neighbor referred her, and I thank her for the referral any’ chance I get. Stacey is professional, knowledgeable and is devoted to fixing what is wrong and taking away the pain! She is compassionate, yet not afraid to push her patients to reach their full potential. Her goal is to make her patients whole and to allow them to resume their normal life. She succeeds, and I highly endorse her.


I was originally recommended to see Stacey for my shoulder after rotator cuff surgery. The shoulder was very painful and did not seem to heal correctly. I had better movement, but there was still a lot of pain despite getting several injections after the surgery. Turns out that I needed to have a second surgery to release the nerve which Stacey suspected.

After healing from the second surgery, 6 months later, I had extensive abdominal surgery which seemed to worsen my back and hip pain post surgery. So, I went back to Stacey to get some relief.
