Chris, you are no stranger to hard work and we are so happy to hear that K2 and the team at the Spooner Sports Institute are providing you with a safe, effective and challenging plan of care. We hope you continue to move better and feel better so that you can get back to doing the things you love.

“I have to say K2 is one of the most professional and caring physical therapist I’ve ever had in my career. As a former professional football player recovering from total knee replacement, I did not want to go to a place where they just check the box. K2 is very thorough about how he treats his clients and makes sure you are safe and comfortable. Because of K2 I look forward to going to rehab because I know I am in excellent hands with K2 and his team. I highly recommend K2 and Spooner Physical Therapy to anyone needing Physical therapy!! He is the best! Thank you, Spooner!”

Want to set up your thrower for continual success?

When it comes to the throwing arm, many variables contribute to an athlete’s continued development. Stance, arm slot, and hand placement are just a few examples that may change over the course of an athlete’s career. One thing that does not change, regardless of experience, from a Little Leaguer to a veteran in the Major Leagues, is fundamentals.

The 2021 Spooner Sports Medicine graduates came together at the Spooner Sports Institute for their first Treat Tank. This activity provided an opportunity for continuous learning, collaboration and team building centered on providing the best patient outcomes. The topic of this first event was return to sport after a lateral ankle sprain.

All athletes have one need in common in order to perform at their best: proper hydration. Staying hydrated is something you should always be monitoring in day to day life, but even more so when exercising in the heat of the Arizona summers! ☀

Follow these tips to improve your hydration strategy and stay ahead of your competition:

Before activity
The goal is to be hydrated well before you even begin your physical activity. Don’t wait to hydrate until your body is telling you that you are thirsty. Anticipate your thirst and take a sip of water to stay ahead.

During activity
Make sure to drink enough fluid to combat the water being lost through sweat. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends young athletes drink about 50 ounces (just over 3 disposable water bottles) worth of water per hour during the activity.

Post activity
Keep a close eye on your body weight to help monitor how much sweat you lost. If you lost plus or minus 1.5% body weight, you are good to go and properly hydrated. If the number is greater than 1.5%, then you are leaning towards dehydration and should start hydrating as soon as possible.

Train harder, practice longer and perform better by staying hydrated.

A lot of people ask what my training is like for these big, long events. To be honest, my volume isn’t massive like most may think. It’s calculated - with a focus on rest, nutrition, balance and having fun. I’ll admit, I’m always extremely intimidated at the start of a race that’s 12+ hours long. “Can I actually do this?”, “What am I doing here”. The program LW Coaching creates for me and routine visits to Fischer Institute do give me that extra push to register! What’s next on your calendar? 🗓🚴‍♂️
