I’m Alex MacLean and I started playing softball when I was 5 years old and have been hooked ever since. My brother was playing T ball and I had to sit on the sidelines so my dad just signed me up. I think I liked the competitive nature of it, so I think that’s why it drew me to pitching because your involved with every single play and every single minute of the game. You’re in control as the pitcher.
So I actually sustained a back injury after graduating from Bucknell University and I was in the care of Coordinated Health Physiatrist, Dr. Brian Goldberg, 3 years after my recovery, I started to have hip and back pain, and scheduled an appointment with Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Wayne Luchetti. After an evaluation Dr. Luchetti suggested physical therapy with PT Leslie Lupin. After I was discharged from the rehabilitation program Leslie encouraged me to continue my training with the sports performance services at Coordinated Health.
Coordinated Health’s Strength and Conditioning program provides a unique and customized service for athletes and individuals, that focuses on injury prevention, improved athletic sports performance and the final phase of rehabilitation after physical therapy to restore optimal health and fitness. The team of college prepared certified performance trainers are part of an integrated healthcare delivery network that is physician and physical therapy supported.
A lot of times injuries re occur, due to the fact that you’re not continuing to train and you’re not doing the right things and you fall right back into the same bad habits and the same injuries can occur again, and performance training can deliver the positive results your looking for to enhance any program your currently in. My specialty is softball and their specialty is sports performance and sports training. There’s so much value in the knowledge that the trainers have, and that’s the reason why I’m still a part of the program.
My company is Seven Deadly Spins Fastpitch and we specialize in softball training for the beginner and the seasoned athlete in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. We offer softball training in all aspects of the game: pitching, hitting, fielding and catching. With our partnership, If I have a student who is having an issue I can always ask one of the instructors at Coordinated Health what do you think the issue is, or can we get them in for an evaluation today, and that’s really helpful. To be able to have a resource that we can send our student to, and for them to learn and develop adds so much value to our program and also theirs.
