Many in the sports medicine community believe there are 5 PHASES of injury rehabilitation management. The final and most overlooked phase is Injury prevention. At its core, this critical step encompasses the process of identifying and managing risk factors following an injury. It’s aimed at preventing damage and improving performance through proper assessment and recovery. Enter Phase 5 Sports Performance and Recovery. Our mobile service now provides the same offerings once only seen at the collegiate and professional levels.
My name is Craig, and I am the founder of Phase 5 Sport Performance and Recovery. In the early stages of my career, I was a certified athletic trainer working at the Division I collegiate level for 15+ years. At this level, I honed my techniques and treatments to help elite athletes get back on the field as quickly and safely as possible. Now I am offering these same techniques and treatments to provide unmatched service focused on helping the body effectively recover while maximizing performance and preventing injuries.
One of the things I love most about Northern California is our ability to have an active lifestyle. Exercise and training go hand in hand with this way of life. It does not matter if you are a CrossFitter, Big League Dreamer, high school athlete, or weekend warrior. People are getting serious about their training. Unfortunately, over time, all this activity without proper recovery can lead to overuse trauma or more severe injuries. These mishaps can temporarily sideline, or even worse, derail people from an active lifestyle forever. The problem is not that people do not care about recovery. Instead, the issue links to people in Northern California not having access to the proper equipment/treatment to recover adequately.
Phase 5 Sport Performance and Recovery sets the standard when it comes to performance and recovery. Whether assisting those recuperating from injuries, keeping athletes healthy, supporting optimal performance, or helping anyone who simply wants to feel better and pain-free, Phase 5 is the answer. The standard doesn’t change.
