Strength, Conditioning & Injury Prevention Program

Viverant is excited to announce a 4-week Baseball Offseason Strength, Conditioning, and Injury Prevention Program, led by Steve Kraushaar, Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and former St. Scholastica baseball player! The Program will focus on each student 's understanding of the mechanics of the shoulder and elbow complex, as well as importance of synergy and neuromuscular control to optimize training, on-field performance and injury prevention. In addition, Viverant 's Registered Dietitian and former Olympian, Rasa Troup, will also tackle common nutritional deficiencies limiting student athlete 's performance. Steve and Rasa 's extensive background in high-level athletics, combined with their clinical expertise in physical therapy and nutrition, allow them the unique ability to assess each athlete 's strengths, areas for improvement, mechanical and/or nutritional deficiencies that take away from them reaching their optimal performance levels. Baseball To improve our participant 's athletic readiness, Viverant 's Prevention Program is structured such that each weekly session will build upon the previous week(s) in preparation for the upcoming baseball season, as well as provides home exercise and customized nutritional plans to follow during the baseball season. Progress will be monitored from week to week through pre-and-post rotator cuff and periscapular strength and range of motion testing. This will allow our participants to see their progression throughout the program, as well as highlight areas their coaches/trainers can focus on during the season. Each player will conclude the program with the knowledge to identify correct mechanics with baseball-specific exercises, efficient movement patterns, correlate exercises learned to on-field performance and understand how crucial proper nutrition can be for health and achieving performance goals. Viverant 's thorough baseball experience and therapeutic expertise makes us very well equipped to offer step-by-step guidance and put your student-athletes in the best possible position to prevent injury and maximize performance! Viverant 's Baseball Offseason Strength, Conditioning, and Injury Prevention Program begins on Sunday, Feb 15th at 4:00 pm at our Vadnais Heights location. Each session will be 90 minutes. Subsequent program dates are Feb 22nd, March 1st and March 8th. Learn more by calling our office at 952.835.4512, option 4, or emailing us directly at info@viverant.com.
