If You Answered “Yes” To Any Of These Questions,
You Are In The Right Place!

Many college athletes try to push through their injuries because they feel like they have no other choice and don’t want to suffer the consequences of sitting out.

If that’s happening to you, you’re definitely not alone, and we hear this type of thing all the time.

In fact, college athletes are some of the most common people we work with in our Highlands Ranch clinic!

“Gina Fick has helped me recover from numerous injuries and prepare my body to be at its physical best to compete at an elite level. I have tried other physical therapists and Gina Fick is by far the best. No one can beat her education, expertise, and wisdom.”

We Find Out What’s Really Going On

Going through your school’s training room can be frustrating and lacks personalization. College sports therapists are often overwhelmed with many different types of athletes and prioritize getting you back in the game over everything, which might be detrimental to your recovery at times.

This is why our first step, before we do anything, is to find out what’s really going on.

After working with lots of college athletes, we know that no two injuries are alike.

Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and find out where the pain is really coming from, and how it’s affecting your performance and daily life.

That way we get a deep understanding of your specific issue, and can create a unique plan of treatment to get you back to the sports and workouts you love.


We Create A Clear Plan For Successful Recovery

Many times, what treatments you find on the internet for your injury, or even receive from other healthcare professionals, is not going to be enough to eliminate your issue.

The problem is, every college athlete’s cause of injury is different!

There isn’t a generic treatment program that is going to give you a lasting solution. 

You Need A Customized Plan.

Sadly, many college athletes prolong their time unable to enjoy the sports and workouts they love by doing the wrong treatments. (Maybe you’ve already experienced that…)

A guided customized treatment plan is your answer.

Some Of Our Treatment Options Include:


Physical Therapy

Our physical therapy programs are for any athlete, whether you play recreationally, professionally, or somewhere in between. If you want to return to your desired sport better, faster, and stronger than you were prior to the injury, we’re the right place for you.

Dry Needling

Our dry needling treatments help athletes experiencing muscle tightness, or pain. With dry needling, you can rapidly recover from your latest training session, injury, and prepare for your next competition. Dry needling can get you back to your sport quickly and efficiently

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

The Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill is perfect for athletes who need to start using their injured lower body before they’re fully recovered. It allows you to get back to your sport faster than ever since you can exercise safely.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy uses a Class IV Lightforce Laser to penetrate deeply into your body stimulating the healing process, reducing muscle spasm and pain, and even decreasing recovery time. This therapy isn’t painful. It actually produces a soothing warmth in the affected area.

X-Rays & MRIs

If you’re injured and want to get an x-ray or MRI the same day, we can help. At Fick Performance & PT you can skip the visit to the emergency room or urgent care clinic to get your imaging and find out what’s going on. Let us streamline your process for you.

dorsaVi Athletic Movement Assessment

The dorsaVi ViPerform is a wearable device with wireless sensors that tracks and measures your movements in real-time while you run or play your sport. The sensors record data from your activity.

Sports Recovery

The body’s ability to recover from frequent workouts and sports is the key to athletic success. When you train hard you put a lot of stress on your body, mind, and nervous system. Our recovery strategies provide the exact same services to our clients typically reserved only for professional athletes. Come take advantage of this special recovery program.

Sports Massage

Sports massage therapy helps athletes who have muscle tightness, pain, or injury. This type of massage provides healing and relief to overused muscles and joints. Adding sports massage to your physical therapy treatment can decrease recovery time by releasing muscle tightness and soreness using a deep tissue massage technique.

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)

Want to get stronger without high intensity training? That’s exactly what BFR training can do for your body. It’s safe and super-effective at accelerating strength improvements without lifting heavy weights. Even if you’re injured, and can’t use a lot of weight right now, BFR can help you get stronger.


Return To Your Active Life As Quickly As Possible

We know that every minute injured and in pain is another minute away from your sport and puts your education and future at risk.

That’s why we use our proven therapy techniques to get you back to the sports and workouts you love as quickly and safely as possible.

Our goal isn’t just to get you back in the game but to come back stronger and better than before.

Finally, Get Rid Of Your Injury And Keep It From Coming Back!

You don’t have to sacrifice the sports you love over problems that can be fixed.
Let’s chat about how you can get back to the game again.
