Physical Rehab

Dr. Scott utilizes a low-tech, functional movement approach to exercise rehabilitation geared toward improving balance and proprioceptionstrengthening core muscle groups and increasing muscle function and endurance.  He has worked alongside numerous medical doctors, physical therapists, athletic trainers and strength coaches throughout his career.

The goal of rehab and conditioning instructed in our clinic is to come up with a brief series of exercises specific to the individual needs of each patient.  Compliance rates are high with our patients because we ensure that our patients understand the purpose of their exercises and how those exercises help to bring both short-term and long-term relief of symptoms.

Exercise design and instruction are given in the clinic for patients to perform at home with simple equipment such as gym balls/swiss balls, exercise tubing, and proprioceptive or balance equipment. Core muscle group stabilization is the most important factor in prevention and recovery from injuries. Endurance of muscles that maintain proper function and stability when performing difficult movements is also critical in preventing injuries and  expediting recovery.

If you have a personal trainer, coach, martial arts, pilates, or yoga instructor, Dr. Scott will contact them and work hand-in-hand to coordinate a plan that works best for you and your individual goals.

With 20 years of endurance sports participation and 15 years of strength and conditioning training, Dr. Scott understands how to integrate exercise rehab to all the different lifestyles patients present with.

History of the CSCS

The Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) program was created in 1985 to identify individuals who possess the knowledge and skills to design and implement safe and effective strength and conditioning programs. The credentialing program encourages a higher level of competence among practitioners and raises the quality of strength training and conditioning programs provided by those who are CSCS certified.

Today, more than 21,000 professionals from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds hold this prestigious credential. This diverse group includes strength coaches, athletic trainers, physical therapists, personal trainers, physicians, chiropractors, researchers and educators. The CSCS is the only strength training and conditioning certification to be nationally accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and has been nationally accredited since 1993.
