Trackside Support

Racing is taxing physically on both drivers and crew members. As a certified athletic trainer and licensed physical therapist, Julia can help decrease physical stress to improve job performance. For example, if a driver has physical discomfort, they may be distracted from racing the car at 100%. Likewise, a crew member may not perform their duties in the pits at maximum efficiency, which could cost precious time on the track. 

Trackside services available:

  • Acute and chronic injury assessment

  • Sports massage, including muscle energy techniques

  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization including cupping

  • Stretching

  • Joint mobilization and manipulation

  • Taping/bracing techniques

  • First aid

  • Therapeutic exercise prescription for injury treatment or injury prevention

  • Warm up/cool down programs for driver and crew

  • Ergonomic assessment of driver positioning in the car

  • Nutrition and hydration counseling

  • Assist in managing general medical conditions like diabetes, asthma, common cold, etc.

  • Act as intermediary between patient and physician, including decision-making regarding if further follow up is needed to minimize unnecessary time at the doctor's office
