Transition to Athletics Guidance
Made possible by a generous donation from G. John and Betty Stevens, Transition to Athletic Guidance (TAG) at Beaumont helps athletes and other active individuals further prepare for a return to athletic activities following a Beaumont physical therapy program. Certified athletic trainers will lead participants in sport-specific functional programs designed to help anyone from the high school or college athlete to the active senior successfully transition from physical therapy back into their sport or recreational activity.
The Beaumont certified athletic trainer leading the program will assess the athlete using the Functional Movement Systems approach favored by numerous professional sports organizations. This will help identify potential problem areas or imbalances to be addressed through the TAG program. Athletes will be guided through exercises to improve agility, balance, proprioception, strength and flexibility to meet their specific sports and recreational activity needs.
Who can join?
