Repost from @michelemacch using @RepostRegramApp - 10:30am I'll be going in for my radiation simulation and hopefully scheduling my actual radiation treatments. I just want to send a huge shout out and thank you to this guy, Armand @performaxptw for helping me regain the mobility in my arms and shoulders! Such a big difference from just a few weeks ago! Thank you so much Armand! #roadtorecovery #performax #performaxphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapy #pt #fuckcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerwarrior #cancerawareness #standuptocancer
  • Repost from @danstevens_golffitness_atc using @RepostRegramApp - It is a pleasure helping athletes and getting them back on the field safely. Working with a young gentlemen who’s sport requires a lot of dynamic movement and stability which is what I am trying to recreate here with landing on single leg building stability but also improving explosive movement from an athletic position. All sports require dynamic movement, so why lot try to recreate some of that with your therapy/training. Blessed to work with a great team @performaxptw , and blessed to work with great patients and student-athletes. Let’s keep the goals going and trying to make everybody’s life better, healthier, and stronger 🤙💪 #performax #performaxptw #nyslicensedphysicaltherapists #licensedandinsured #physicaltherapy #sportsrehab #rocktape #performaxrockstape #kinesiologytape  #teamperformax #rockblades #IASTM #cupping #rockpods #familyowned #ourpatientsarefamily #trainhardandsmart #ifbb #npc #Bevsgym #UniqueFitness #MrD’sUltimateFitness #Obstacleathletics #RetroFitness #LAFitness #Goldsgym #whosetreatingyou? #proudofmypatients

  • @vid_roberts3 and I volunteered at the Joe Namath Legends Golf Outing.  We were on hold 3 at @bethpagegolfcourse measuring closest to the pin.  We met so many great former pros.  We talked football with Rex Ryan, discussed the Jets kicking woes with Morten Anderson, and laughed with the Legend Joe Torre.  We also met John Randle, Seth Joyner, Marcus Allen, Lou Holtz, Jim Kelly, and John Franco.  On a side note.. there was the sweetest cars from Bentley’s to Rolls Royce’s... My fave was the Lamborghini Urus.

CDC estimates reveal that between 1.6 million and 3.8 million concussions occur each year. 5-10% of athletes will experience a concussion in any given sport. The most common youth sports in which concussions occur are boys football and girls soccer. Only 78% of concussions occur during games; the remaining 22% occurring during practices. It is important to look out for concussion symptoms for 48 hours following a head injury, for an estimated 47% of athletes do not report feeling any symptoms directly following a concussive blow. Some symptoms to be aware of include headaches, dizziness, and nausea. In a case when these symptoms occur, be sure to seek medical attention and DO NOT return to sports until cleared by a therapist and medical professional. Performax therapists offer post-concussion testing for clearance to return to sports!


Concussions in youth sports are more common and more serious than many people realize. When suffering from a blow to the head, a child should seek medical attention within 48 hours to be assessed for any concussion symptoms; Some concussion symptoms may not arise for several hours after the injury occurs. Children should never return to playing sports after undergoing a concussion without being evaluated and cleared by a medical professional. Base line testing is highly recommended so that we can have pre-concussion results to refer to when testing kids on their ability to return to sports.
