I went to High Performance with a chronic injury that was really dragging me down. I ended up working with Jaime who took the time to assess my situation and really understood my problem. I was blown away by how efficiently she worked and got me back to my regular sports routines. The atmosphere there is awesome - upbeat and fun - but they really know how to get the job done!
