ProAm is equally committed to injury prevention and has performance improvement through science and medicine. We have assembled extensive and effective resources in science and medicine with an emphasis on recovery, strength, and conditioning and made them available to our patient athletes at ProAm. We are continuously evaluating new resources and techniques so that we can provide our patients with the very best.
No matter how hard an athlete trains or their desire to succeed, without proper recovery, athletic performance will plateau before beginning to decline, the athletes’ conditioning moving on a flat and then downward slope, and increased risk of injury. With proper training and resources, an athlete ‘s conditioning and performance will see gradual increases tracking on an upward scale while minimizing the risk of injury. ProAm offers the following resources so that our patients can achieve their greatest athletic potential.
Our large, steel hyperbaric chamber is highly versatile; allowing our physicians to treat at up to 1.5 ATA (7 psi) pressure and oxygen molecules to get 400% deeper into your tissue, able to squeeze through constricted blood vessels, inflamed tissue, cross the blood brain barrier, enter lymph nodes, cerebrospinal fluid, and musculoskeletal system. Essentially, oxygen is delivered into all of our tissues, including areas where circulation is diminished, which is an extremely important component of healing as oxygen is essential for the function and maintenance of every cell in our body, regardless of whether it’s an organ, muscle or bone. For maximum effect, each session generally lasts 60 – 90 minutes.
IV Therapy is the quickest and most effective means of rehydration and supplementation, allowing maximum absorption of vital vitamins and nutrients for effective performance and recovery. Alone or in conjunction with other medical services provided by ProAm, IV Therapy administered at ProAm under doctor supervision can rapidly accelerate the recovery process after a hard workout and allow the athlete to train optimally on a daily basis or when intense and prolonged training sessions leave the athlete feeling flat. IV Therapy can also aid in the injury treatment process by ensuring the body has all the vital nutrients readily available to promote healing. Our IV Therapy includes:
Contains 50 mL Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide
Contains B Complex, Ca Gluc, Vit B5, MgCl, MTE 5, B3, Procaine, Vit C, Vit B12, Taurine, Zinc, Aminosyn, and Glutathione
Contains B Complex, Ca Gluc, Vit B5, MgCl, MTE 5, Vit B3, Procaine, Vit C, Methylcobalamin (B12), Taurine, Zn **Glutathione
In addition to aiding in the injury treatment process, deep tissue massage is a vital component in the active recovery process by reducing pain, muscle soreness and tension, improving circulation, lowering heart rate and blood pressure, and improving immune function. ProAm’s licensed massage therapists have extensive experience specific to sports medicine and available for recovering athletes daily.
ProAm’s Strength and Conditioning program is overseen by our Physical Therapist, Joe Indrieri, Masters in Kinesiology and Exercise Physiology. Training programs are developed specific to sport/athletic objectives and performed in our advanced ProAm training facility by our experienced exercise physiologists. Individual and Group training sessions are available. It is important to note that while Physical Therapy is performed to rehabilitate a sports injury, strength and conditioning programs have an emphasis on performance improvement and future injury prevention.
