Elevate Performance & Physical Therapy is a specialty clinic focused on performance enhancement, injury prevention and optimal health maintenance. Elevate is owned and operated by Nadine Waeghe, a physical therapist and certified athletic trainer with over 20 years of experience. At Elevate we take an integrative approach that combines the knowledge and skills of various healthcare, wellness, sport sciences, and fitness disciplines. We understand that the human body is a complex organism that functions via intricate relationships among the physiological systems which operate at a cellular level. A detailed history and comprehensive, functional assessment to determine safety and efficiency of movement provide the basis for specific recommendations ranging from simple exercises to movement or technique modification to reduce strain on vulnerable tissues, reduce energy expenditure through efficiency of movement, and improve performance. Of course the Elevate Team also treats injuries or musculoskeletal conditions and provide comprehensive rehabilitation service from initial injury through return to sport at an optimal performance level.
