With more than 20 years of experience under his belt, physical therapist Roland Lucas knows that the best way to recover from an injury is to avoid injuries in the first place. That's why he's devoted a large part of his practice to the prevention and resolution of overuse-related strains in athletes of all stripes. He's aided in his efforts by his office's biomechanics-analysis system, which he uses to identify stressors and bad workout habits otherwise imperceptible to the human eye. Of course, even with the best prevention, injuries still sometimes happen. When muscles cry out in pain, Lucas also comes to their aid with traditional physical-therapy services.
