Sportsmetrics offered at FBHS
The Physical Therapy staff at MRMC offers sportsmetrics to FortBenton students during the summer months.
The kids who participate in this program are photographed performing various jumps to identify improper core position. Then through a 6 week series of training sessions, they work on various strength and conditioning techniques and are retested at the end of the session. Knee health was emphasized but overall posture and strength were the goals. The coaches saw impressive results and worked with the PT’s to incorporate some of the ideas into daily workouts.
