WHO WILL BE THERE:

Big League Performance + Rehab

PT Dr. Mike Yasson

 

Dr. Mike is the Founder of Big League Performance + Rehab, a lifestyle therapy brand.  Growing up in New York as young kid, his life was centered around playing sports. Baseball (not lacrosse) was the sport of choice. As a pitcher for his high school team he had aspirations of playing in college and even grander dreams of playing professionally.

Those dreams all seemingly came crashing to a halt his sophomore year of high school when in the middle of throwing a bullpen session a sudden sharp pain in his  shoulder prevented him from being able to lift his arm. The result was a torn labrum in his shoulder and a future in question.

Due to the injury he missed the baseball season and had to go to physical therapy for the first time. It was then that his life changed forever.  Seeing his own physical therapist work with people such as himself getting them back to doing what they love to do was enough to set Mike off. This is when he fell in love with PT. He ame to the conclusion that if baseball wasn’t going to work out for me, physical therapy would. If I couldn’t make it, I want to help others to make it.

Thanks to his Physical Therapist, he made a triumphant return to the mound and had a successful high school career which lead to successful college baseball career at the University of Scranton while majoring in Exercise Science and later becoming a Physical Therapist.

Thanks to his time at Scranton he was able to spend 2 years working as a strength and conditioning coach in the New York Yankees organization and a spring training with the San Francisco Giants. It was during this time he was exposed to the special treatment that these professional athletes received. Whether it was the extra attention in the weight room, or the extra stretch in the training room, these players were not just another number in the system, they were treated like actual people, This is where the Big League Treatment was born! 

Physical Therapy doesn’t have to only be a reactive treatment, its something that can be done proactively.  During his time in professional baseball he not only got to work with players who were injured, but also proactively with players that wanted to stay healthy and do what they love for a long time.

From here Mike made it his mission to bring this Big League Treatment to everybody. Professional athletes shouldn’t be the only ones with access to superior care with extra attention to detail. As a result Big League Performance + Rehab was born! No matter whether you’re a professional athlete, weekend warrior, or someone just trying to keep up with their kids. If you have a body, you’re an athlete and deserve to be treated like one!
