Get to know Erik Phillips
Erik, former Head Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets Athletic Trainer, uses his knowledge of injury prevention and recovery to help young athletes return faster and stronger after injury. Erik has treated some of the greatest athletes in the NBA and has helped hundreds of youth athletes at his sports performance training facility since 2008, and now provides his injury recovery services to adults in the Denver Metro Area at his new facility MuvLab-DTC.
Erik’s breadth and depth of experience helping professional athletes get back in the game gives him the skills to help virtually anyone regain function while recovering from injury. While working with the Suns, Erik helped pilot the program that is now called Fusionetics. He uses Fusionetics at MuvLab-DTC to track each individuals progress as they complete their individual injury prevention or recovery program. The program uses a series of movement screens and evaluations to determine the state at which your body currently functions. Once the assessment is completed the client receives a movement efficiency score. Erik uses this score to track clients progress throughout the program to ensure that his/her chance of injury or re-injury is decreased.
Most injuries that we treat at MuvLab-DTC are overuse in nature and can be prevented with a proactive approach. Erik is an expert at identifying muscular imbalances and designing a plan to correct the imbalances. If we workout, run, cycle, or simply continue through daily life with a body that is not mechanically efficient, we run the risk of becoming injured. When asked what can we do to eliminate these over use injuries and live pain free? Erik said it's simple "it doesn't take more than 10 minutes each day to start to notice the benefits of a corrective exercise program. We use foam rollers, static stretching, and activation exercises to retrain the body how to perform properly. Take 10 minutes each day to treat yourself and you'll notice the impacts in a matter of weeks!"
