What is Performance Therapy?

On this episode of the #AskMikeReinold show we talk about performance based physical therapy. This is something we really believe in at Champion. We don’t want to just help people rehab back to neutral from an injury, we also want to use our therapy skills to restore, optimize, and enhance performance.
