A Personal Message From Dr. Gina Fick

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

It’s common to put off seeking treatment for a sports injury, hoping that it will go away on its own (but unfortunately that’s rarely the case). Many youth athletes suffer through sports injuries because they’re afraid to tell their coaches or parents that something is actually hurting.

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

In fact, youth athletes are some of the most common patients we see in our Highlands Ranch clinic.
“Throughout my high school track career, Gina Fick was able to successfully treat and heal my injuries. She has extensive knowledge and was always willing to help and advise me on injury prevention and injury healing.”

Get Your Youth Athlete’s Competitive Edge Back!

At Fick PT & Performance We’ve Created A 3-Step Process To Get Rid Of Your Child's Athletic Injuries AND Make Sure Their Pain Stays Away.

We Find Out What’s Really Going On

Our medical system is frustrating and lacks personalization. There are long wait times for appointments and very short visits once you actually get in to see someone. Sadly, even most physical therapy clinics operate this way.

They’re not attentive and lack a system to work specifically with athletes under 18.

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

After working with lots of youth 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 with you and your athlete. During this time we talk to find out where the problem is really coming from and how it’s impacting their athletic goals.

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


We Create A Clear Plan For Successful Recovery

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

Every youth athlete’s cause of injury is different! There isn’t a generic treatment program that is going to give them a lasting solution. 

You Need A Customized Plan.

Sadly, many youth athletes prolong their time unable to enjoy the sports and workouts they love by doing the wrong treatments.

A guided customized treatment plan is the 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 is another minute of your kid being away from their favorite sports.

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

Our goal isn’t just to get youth athletes back in the game, but to help them come back stronger and better than before.

Your kid doesn’t have to sacrifice the sports they love over problems that can be fixed.
Let’s chat about how we can get them back in the game.
