FUNCTIONAL SCREENING FOR ATHLETES

Athletes in St. Catharines - Thorold and Niagara trust Dr. Daniela DiPaola for functional screening.

 

Dr. Daniela offers a variety of functional screening examinations in order to identify weakness, tightness, or biomechanical issues. This ultimately allows us to identify problems with the athlete’s mechanics in order to assist with injury prevention. Examinations are 1 hour in length. After the examination takes place, the doctor will provide the athlete with a summary of advice and exercises that will help them address the biomechanical issues at hand in order to apply preventative measures.

In the past we have worked with athletes, amateur to professional, and have been very successful with our results. The goal of the functional screen is to keep the athlete healthy and injury-free.
