CERTIFIED SPORTS SPECIFIC SCREENINGS
Catalyst offers baseball and golf enthusiasts unique sport specific screenings! These evaluations include a sport specific functional movement screen and a video recorded analysis to check the biomechanics of your swing or throw. These screens identify any physical limitations that may affect your performance and can help us easily address them to help you get back on track. Our doctors are certified for golf through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) and OnBase University for baseball analysis.
Improving your game doesn’t have to be subjective! Our therapists are players themselves and trained to quickly and efficiently analyze your biomechanics to identify any limitations you might have that are keeping you from your best game.
HOW DO I KNOW IF A SCREENING CAN HELP ME IMPROVE?
No matter how good you are, it is very rare that there isn’t room for improvement. Our sports screens result in clear measurable data and typically benefit from one of two avenues of care afterwards.
If you do not have any pain and only physical deficits limiting your performance, then you may benefit from a performance/fitness route with our strength and conditioning specialists. Our performance coaches can address and improve flexibility, mobility, dynamic stability, strength, power, and endurance to help you take your game to the next level!
If pain is present, you would definitely benefit from a medical route with certified golf and baseball physical therapists. Certified physical therapists are specially trained to identify sport specific limitations in your body that can cause inefficient mechanics, as well as treat injuries stemming from poor mechanics.
Our team are NOT golf pros or baseball coaches. While we have experience in these sports, we are the medical and fitness specialists and we will gladly communicate and work with your golf pro,or baseball coach, to help them specifically modify your technique or equipment. Together, the 3-headed monster of Medical, Fitness, and Sports Specialist, is the cutting edge approach of modern sport performance! We are always excited to work with your sports specialist and we are always looking for quality specialists to refer our clients to!
Find Your best swing with our TPI Certified therapists TPI Golf Assessment $125
During your assessment, we perform a sport-specific functional movement screen and a video analysis of your golf swing. These screens identify any mechanical deficiencies or inefficiencies that can compromise performance and put you at greater risk for injury. This screening will help you find the road to your most efficient swing based on your specific body.
After screening, the results are used to create a plan specific to you. The plan may include fitness training, physical therapy and treatment, referral for coaching of swing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition, mental strategy, or all of the above. We work with you to find your best swing for your body!

ATTENTION BASEBALL PLAYERS!
Be Your Best Hitter
OnBase University Baseball Hitting Assessment (Body-Hitting Connection) $125
Our OnBase University certified therapists are trained to help you understand what physical limitations you may have that are keeping you from hitting your best.
We evaluate your physical capabilities so we can assess the technical elements of your swing and help you find the key areas that are holding you back from hitting your best. This is called the Body-Swing Connection.
We analyze how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the various biomechanics involved in baseball and softball, potentially leading to injury or keeping you from thoroughly enjoying the game.
If we find your body is limiting your swing, there are two options:
We communicate with your hitting coach to build a swing that works around your limitations
Work with our fitness and/or medical professional to improve your limitations and optimize your efficiency and swing potential!
TPI AND ONBASE UNIVERSITY PHILOSOPHY
TPI and OnBase University does not believe in one way to swing or throw, rather in an infinite number of styles to do so. But, we do believe there is ONE efficient way for every player to swing or throw and it is based on what the player can physically do.
The most efficient swing or throw is not the same for every player, because efficiency is unique to their body. To achieve an efficient swing or throw, a player must first be screened. This screen involves an assessment of sport mechanics and biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, current health and a client history.
Once this screen is finished, the results are used to create a plan unique for that player. The plan may include fitness training, physical therapy and treatment, coaching of swing or throwing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition, mental strategy or all of the above.
A player will see the greatest improvement by surrounding themselves with a team of experts. Similarly, any professional in the golf or baseball industry will see their clients benefit most by themselves being part of a network or team of professionals.
