I am a PT, LMT and CKPT. I want to focus my practice on sports performance and injury recovery using KT, myofascial release, and functional training plus a few modalities that include estim and laser BUT i’m in a small space and a smaller budget. I’m a start up so I just need the necessities but I don’t want to endanger my care with the lack of funds and space. Any suggestions on a list and places to find these?
All of the previous answers are great. If you are the industrious and do-it-yourself type, going to home depot to get dowels are good. You could also go in there and get PVC pipes of different sizes and widths and feel them up with sand or water to use for instability training. I am a mobile trainer for the most part and use a lot of different bands for exercises in both the office, home, gym and field. I have had luck purchasing equipment from Sports Authority, but, use Perform Better for the majority of my training equipment. With a little ingenuity and creativity, you can do a whole lot with a lot less.
