Helping Athletes Optimize Performance

If your goal is to perform better in your chosen sport, Dr. Robison can help. He works with you to ensure your lower limbs remain pain-free, flexible, and have a full range of motion. It’s a process that starts with a thorough biomechanical assessment to look at your stance, posture, gait (or how you walk or run), joint movements, muscle strength, and even wear patterns on your shoes to get a comprehensive insight into your body. Dr. Robison then combines critical findings of the gait assessment with the results of your stance, joint, and muscle testing to develop a customized solution specific to your body, fitness level, and lifestyle. Often, he can provide recommendations for training and warm-up programs, footwear, exercises, and movements, which can help to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury.
