Gymnastics Injury Clinic

Are you a gymnastics parent who is wondering what it will cost your daughter in the long run if she continues to work through the pain?

Have you been told “it is just growing pains” and you need to wait for your daughter’s body to grow up?

Do you have a gymnast who is trying to advance levels or get that new skill but can’t because pain is stopping her from meeting her gymnastics goals?

Have you seen other medical provides in the past who don’t communicate with you, your gymnast, or their coaches on the best plan to keep your daughter doing what she loves?

Have you seen other medical providers in the past that just tell you to stop doing gymnastics?
 

We have a unique treatment approach that focuses on solving these problems with our clients.

Our goal is to help keep your gymnast active while recovering from injury by staying in the gym and guiding them in ways to modify their skills and training, rather than eliminating gymnastics!

We combine manual hands-on techniques with guided supervised exercises to help your gymnast get stronger, pain-free, and perform at their peak level to get them back to full speed in the gym.
 

The SPARK Physical Therapy Commitment

No long waits or multiple trips to providers’ offices every week. We see your gymnast either onsite at your gym or in the comfort of your home when it is convenient with your schedule.

One on one for a full hour with your doctor of physical therapy, every visit.

We provide your gymnast with a customized plan specifically designed for them, based off their unique injury and goals.

Full transparency in what you pay. You will never get a bill from us a couple of months after your visit.

“I went to see Duane early into my marathon training with hamstring pain. At that time, I was barely able to run 3 miles and was in pain. After a thorough exam and analysis of my running, he was able to diagnose and start treatment that day. Duane provided me with exercises to strengthen my hamstring and surrounding running muscles, all while slowly building my mileage back up. He was honest with me about setting realistic goals for my race and helped me to meet those goals. With his help, I was able to run the New York City Marathon.”

“I first went to Duane prior to training for my first full marathon because I had some aches and pains from running that I wanted to sort out. Duane was able to diagnose the problems immediately and I went home pain free. The exercises he prescribed were personalized to my needs and within a few weeks, I felt stronger and pain free while running so I could get to healthy training! It’s great to have a physical therapist who understands athletes and encourages people to continue to stay active. I highly recommend Duane to any person who is looking to stay healthy while maintaining an active lifestyle!”

SPARK Physical Therapy was instrumental in my recovery of from achilles tendinitis. I visited a podiatrist who said I would need surgery to shave down a bone spur and Haglund’s Deformity. The recovery would be at least 8 weeks and at the time I was 24 weeks from running the NYC Marathon. Duane evaluated me and said I needed to work on my calf muscle and flexibility. We started treatment with dry needling and specific exercises that I could do on my own. The pain subsided and even after some long runs everything was starting to feel better. I will tell you that I ran and finished the NYC Marathon without pain or issues from my achilles. Had I not met Duane about a week after my podiatrist appointment I would have needed to defer my marathon and probably would still be recovering from the surgery. I was able to run through my injury safely and achieve my goal. The refreshing thing about SPARK Physical Therapy is they do not push for ton of session. I met my running goals in 10 sessions spread out over 3-4 months. Big Thank you to Duane and I highly recommend seeing him for any running injury you may have!
