ABOUT US

A Protocol defines a set of procedures or steps to be followed for the accomplishment of a given task. 

Pro To Col Sport Systems is a sports rehabilitation clinic that uses a systematic approach to get active people out of chronic pain and back in life’s playing field. We have a team of rehabilitation specialists that use an integrative approach across all disciplines. We work with the client to create a systematic PROTOCOL of manual therapy, rehabilitation and training that empowers them to understand how to be pain-free. Our #1 goal is that the client is heard, helped, educated and empowered.

Over time, bad posture and overuse patterns eventually cause injury or breakdown to the body. Here at Pro To Col Sport Systems, we educate the client to  reduce pain and injury through focusing on the body’s foundational firing patterns.  Movement, whether correct or incorrect, becomes subconscious. Our job is to focus the client’s awareness on what to do to create new patterns of movement that activate the correct muscle groups, to make them stronger, reduce pain and prevent future injuries. 

When our clients walk in the doors at Pro To Col Sport Systems, they can expect a personalized and tailored experience that combines our systems and protocols to make the client the best they can be. We want the client to leave us feeling heard, helped, empowered, and educated, and confident to correct their movement in their daily life, movement and athletic activity.
