This June, our Cave Creek Clinical Director, Kristen Collins, PT, selected Madeline Hogenauer as our Athlete of the Month. Madeline is 10 years old and has been involved in gymnastics for at least 6 years. She is currently a competitive gymnast at North Valley Gymnastics. She has been working with Kristen since March to overcome some injuries as well as participate in sports specific training.
At North Valley, she is an Excel bronze level gymnast with vault being her favorite sport.
After qualifying for and placing on several events at the state competition, she then qualified for regionals where she placed 9th in the all-around and 4th on beam and vault.
Madeline was a patient with us recovering from Sever’s disease and general foot and ankle mechanical pain. After a month of rehab and technical training with Kristen, she improved from scoring mid 8’s to mid 9’s at her gymnastic competitions. She hopes to move up to the silver level in the coming year and maintain her mid-9 scoring average.
