What specific services does the clinical program offer?
The Weightlifting Analysis program provides two-dimensional video analysis of weightlifting specific exercises to inform the athlete of movement impairments that could result in increased risk of injury, painful movement patterns, and decreased force production. The physical therapist will provide a detailed explanation of their performance as well as exercise interventions to improve technique and address impairments that may be contributing factors to their pain or movement dysfunction. Lifts that are eligible for analysis are the squat, deadlift, bench press, clean and jerk, and snatch, as well as other accessory lifts and exercises.
Who would benefit from the program?
- Injured athletes who have difficulty performing lifts due to pain.
- Athletes who are returning to weightlifting following an injury as a part of their off-season sport preparation.

These therapists combine the anatomical knowledge of a physical therapist with advanced training in weightlifting technique to perform detailed analyses of both structure and skill in order to maximize outcomes.
