No matter which category of TPM Active best describes you, our TPM Specialists realise everyone has their own unique movement patterns.
Therefore, finding the movement patterns that are most related to your performance or injury risk reduction needs a highly individualised approach. To identify just what a TPM Specialist can do for you, we visit a TPM Pro clinic (Top Performance Delta) in the Netherlands who work with a lot of serious recreational and professional athletes.
Here, two of Top Performance Delta’s clients talk about the difference working with the team at the clinic has made on their performance and experience of injury:
I am 31 years old and a fanatical cyclist. Since I've had my back problem during cycling for 2 years, I've been looking for an opportunity to get rid of it. It hindered me so much that at some point I just couldn't put any more power on the pedals. My intention was to deal with it properly this time. I wanted to get rid of my complaints for good.
My physiotherapist advised me to look at Top Performance Delta to prevent my complaint from returning again. Initially, I went to a workshop to find out more. Here I understood how they could help me in preventing a return of the problem important. For me it has been very positive, my back pain is no longer an issue. I can do long training sessions on the bike again and my testing results have improved. I also realized that in addition to cycling, I must continue to do strength and movement control work. It is important for the cyclist to get stronger; you can't make it with just the kilometres on the bike.
I’m 16 years old and I play hockey at HC Den Bosch Girls in the Netherlands. Through my trainer (Stan Huijsmans), I got in touch with Top Performance Delta. TPM (The Performance Matrix) Pro consultant, Jeannette Hoftijzer was recommended by Stan when my injury issues became more and more persistent. Jeannette carried out a detailed TPM movement assessment and put a movement retraining plan together so that I would be able to play hockey again as soon as possible. I went to Top Performance Delta every week and went through all the exercises, considering what could be done to improve my performance. At the end of each training, I received updated versions of my plan ready to perform over the next week. I now notice a big difference in how I walk, during hockey I can sustain my performance for longer and even hit shots harder now.
