UPMC Content 2

At UPMC Sports Medicine, our sports performance and fitness programs strive to enhance human movement and correct imbalances in sports and life.

From movement assessments to sport-specific training, we have the right program to help both individuals and teams improve their athletic skills.

Sports Performance

Functional movement assessment

UPMC Sports Performance experts believe an in-depth functional movement assessment (FMA) can help find problems that are keeping athletes from reaching their peak. Then, we can provide ways to increase athletic performance.

Performance assessment

  • 40/60 yard dash (electronic timing system)
  • Broad jump
  • Pro-Agility drill
  • L-drill
  • Vertical jump
  • Pull ups

We use the data from the FMA to create a safe, scientifically based strength and conditioning program that fits each athlete's unique needs.

Additional assessments

We also offer:

  • Gait assessments.
  • Body fat analysis (Skin fold).
  • Sport-specific video to analyze movement patterns.
