INJURY PREVENTION: The Prepared Athlete, an online session with Laura Opstedal, PT, DPT

Thursday, August 27
6:30 pm
Zoom Meeting

Laura Opstedal, PT, DPT, of Build Physio & Performance brings her expertise in sports injuries to this online talk called, "The Prepared Athlete." She'll discuss how to reduce injuries, the management of training loads, and the foundations for strength development in dryland training.


Laura Opstedal began her physical therapy career in 2001 after graduating from the prestigious program at U Puget Sound in her
hometown of Tacoma, WA. She holds 2 board certifications- Orthopedics & Sports. She started her first job in private practice with her first mentor who was also an athletic trainer for the US Men's and Women's National Soccer Teams. Because of this affiliation, she was able to work with a lot of athletes, particularly in elite soccer. As a former fast pitch softball athlete herself, Laura had always wanted to work in sports.

Laura has extensive expertise in sports injuries, predominately ACL injuries. Her 20 year career has provided many opportunities for unusual cases, complex cases, surgical revisions and really anything one can think of. As her caseload became referral and word-of-mouth only, she felt supported enough to open Build Physio & Performance in 2019.

Laura promotes evidence based medicine and enjoys mentoring others, particularly on ACL rehabilitation and the use of isokinetics. She is an advocate for science and math, due to her undergraduate degrees in Biology and Math and deeply appreciates the scientific process.

Open to: all BSF athletes, coaches, and parents
