Softball demands power, strength, stability and quickness. It also requires the body to operate functionally to withstand injury throughout the long season. Studies show that young female athletes are at increased risk of injury (as compared to young male athletes), especially in the knees and ankles, making it vital that a softball athlete concentrate on injury prevention throughout their training program. At Bon Secours Sports Performance in Richmond, our team consists of sports medicine physicians, physical therapists, performance specialists and registered dietitians all working together in an integrated approach to performance and injury prevention. We can assess your potential and guide you to new levels of performance.
