- The AOA Performance Institute located at the Mansfield Fieldhouse USA originated out of a desire to help others. We are affiliated with a world-class orthopedic practice, AOA Orthopedic Specialists, and wanted to help our community achieve optimal performance and stay injury-free before they even see a doctor.
- We help you to become a better you. Whether you are looking to improve your sports performance, training for your first big competition or just want to live a stronger, healthier life – we can help develop custom benchmarks to improve your physical performance.
Our Goals = Your Goals
- The AOA Performance Institute team works with clients to assess their status, set mutually agreed upon goals and then work with them to improve their performance in a targeted and specific way until those goals are met. We can work 1-on-1 or in small group or team sessions.
Putting First Responders First
- We know that First Responders maintain a strong fitness regimen to be ready when called upon. We honor what they do for our community and take pride in helping them stay physically ready to protect and serve.
- We help first responders get back into the field faster and more reliably than anyone else, with their health intact and stronger than ever.
Bouncing Back. Staying Healthy.
- Our on-staff Physical Therapists work with the AOA Performance Institute staff to ensure a smooth transition for those returning to work or sports after an injury or surgery. Often, health insurance dictates when therapy is completed. We work hard to close the gap between insurance guidelines and your personal health progress to ensure a strong and safe return. Our goal is to make sure you are injury free and back to doing what you love again.
- We also want you to be on the right path to prevent future injuries. Whether you are recovering or being proactive, we can set programs for individuals and groups to help reduce the risk of injuries.
- Our facilities offer top of the line fitness programs that accommodate any patient, from office workers to some of Texas’ most hard hitting professional athletes.
Prioritizing Functional Movement
- “Functional Movements” require firing multiple muscle groups in various positions in order to achieve a common goal. For example, if you want to swing a golf club you have to tighten your hip, rotate your shoulders, raise your arms up across your body while keeping your head in place, rotating the spine along one axis. Another example of functional movement includes simply bending down to pick-up your child and rotating your core muscles to put them in their car seat. Physical Therapists can utilize Functional Movement training after an injury or in preparation for an activity to mimic those actions and break them down into more easily digested components in order to achieve your “functional goal.”
