Back to play
Additional validation for incorporating quality sport testing into present methodology is to assess current readiness (back to play). Standardized testing can establish a more complete physical health profile prior to competition. Furthermore, most athletes will suffer an injury or a setback of some kind. Determining competitive readiness is essential for health and success, and also provides a barometer for evaluation and comparison to previous patterns that may have led to stoppage of play, or an intervention that can accelerate an athlete's successful return to play.
Motivated benchmarks through standardized testing, with multiple data points provide a diagnostic for comparison and analysis with a standardized post test. Educated objective decisions can then be made as to rehab and competitive readiness.
