This program is designed specifically for athletes who are returning to training after a serious illness or injury. Once your acute issues have been resolved by your medical team and you have been cleared to resume vigorous exercise by your physicians and therapists, Dr. Skiba works one-on-one with you to specifically engineer your return to best possible racing form.
The program begins with an in-depth initial consultation to determine what your abilities were before your setback, as well as your training history and experience. We will then review your medical history and treatment, response to treatment, and current regimen in detail. Finally, we will carry out a detailed program of formal exercise testing (including strength and flexibility) to determine current functional status. Using this information, we determine a set of reasonable goals and then devise the optimal coaching program to achieve these goals. We will optimize your nutrition and recovery strategies, and will utilize our unique technologies to manage every aspect of your training.
Throughout the process, we will confer as often as necessary by telephone, internet, and in person when practical. We will also communicate regularly with and provide reports to your physicians and other health care providers.
This program is most appropriate for athletes recovering from a serious medical illness or injury. Examples include people recovering from cancer, recurrent orthopedic or musculoskeletal injuries (including major trauma), or heart disease.
Please note that this service does not include medical services or treatment. We will not prescribe medications or order medical testing. People interested in medical care should contact Dr. Skiba for more details.
