Hayashida PT In the Community: Westmont Physicals

Every Fall, the physical therapists of Hayashida and Associates participate in an injury prevention program at Westmont College; this year screening over 250 athletes. The therapists use the Biomechanical Scan (BMS), to efficiently scan each body region and identify any impairments and/or faulty movement patterns. These impairments, if not addressed, often cause abnormal wear and tear throughout the season and can predispose these athletes for injury. The therapists then work with the athletic trainers of Westmont College in designing and implementing individualized and proactive exercise programs to address the faulty patterns to optimize the athletic careers of each athlete.
