Our Sports Rehabilitation Specialist:

The Performance Enhancement Training program is led by Angel Montanez, ATC, LAT, PES. Mr. Montanez is a certified Performance Enhancement Specialist from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. His training experience extends from preadolescents to competitive athletes to senior citizens. He is also a licensed athletic trainer in the State of New Jersey with over 10 years experience at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels. Currently Angel designs sport-specific strength & conditioning programs for adolescents at a private high school as well as assists the Sports Medicine staff of the San Diego Padres Development Team in the Dominican Republic.

The Program:

In order to design the most effective prehab and performance enhancement programs, we look at the following components within all athletes:

Past Medical History – To deliver the most effective training program you must know what injuries or conditions your athlete has gone through. These injuries or limitations may have a dramatic effect on the drills and exercises you choose to train youth athletes.

Prior Training History – It is never wise to begin a training program without establishing a proper base. We will evaluate what you have or have not done before in order to educate you and ensure proper development moving forward to avoid injury.

Postural Alignment & Biomechanics – Understanding how posture and biomechanics affect an athlete’s movement capacity and patterns of movement is important in reducing injuries and preventing overtraining. What do I mean? I generally look at consistent things like standing posture, hip/knee alignment, the arches of the feet, single leg stance posture and flexibility. In addition, I really like to observe the overhead squat maneuver to see how athletes move as a kinetic chain. Can they squat without compensation? Do the knees cave inward? Do they favor one leg? What happens at the ankle? Noting these things can predict a lot about how they will move during strength training, plyometrics and agility exercises.

Basic Strength Assessment – We assess the athlete’s ability to control his/her own body weight. A few key tests I look at are: single leg squats, single leg reaches, pull-ups, push-ups, and planks. Keep in mind that the quality, not quantity, of the movement is the most important factor to observe.

Dynamic Movement Analysis – I like to observe how athlete’s reach with the arms and legs in multiple planes to see how the athlete handles changes in the center of gravity. Additionally, I like to observe single leg stance with the eyes closed in order to see how much visual correction is necessary to overcome vestibular (inner ear) and joint kinesthetic deficiencies.

All of these components above mention play an integral role in the training blueprint for successful athletic performance programming. Ignoring any of them will lead to less than optimal results.
