Dr. Kirsten Trapp is a Godsend! Very knowledgeable, very caring and all-around a wonderful person. After a full knee replacement, I was referred to a physical therapist the surgeon worked with often. After 6 weeks of stagnant results with Physical Therapy, I sought answers for the severe pain. I was referred to Dr. Trapp from
Finding Dr. Cody Johnson and the Athletic Advantage team after relocating to Dallas was a game changer for my dance career. I first came to the office with an ankle sprain I was sure was going to take me out of my next show. Through a combination of dry needling and aquatic therapy, I made
Athletic Advantage Saved My Season. Five weeks before Districts, I suffered what could have, and in most cases, would have been a season ending injury. I had a complete tear of my UCL and Flexor Origin Tendon. The injury left my elbow unstable, and I completely lost grip strength. This was my Senior year, my last chance to wrestle in high school. I was devastated! I had a great doctor who explained the risks of continuing to wrestle with this type of injury, and the absolute best coaches in my corner who knew my goals. I understood the severity of my injury, but I knew I had to be able to compete at districts in order to make it to state. I trained with the Athletic Advantage team regularly and followed their instructions to the letter. In three weeks, I regained 80% range of motion, and was stronger than I was pre-injury. I was back on the mat for Districts. I was both District and Regional Champion, and I placed 4th at State. Today, my elbow is fully recovered, and I will be wrestling in college in the Fall. This place changed my life! They saved my senior season!
I would like to personally thank Cody and his team for the support throughout high school. This team was a major part of keeping me healthy on and off the court. Working on different techniques prevent a lot of injuries like the constant ankle sprains and knee pains I used to have in the past. I recommend Cody Johnson for preventive treatment and if you are experiencing pain or constant problems due to sports, etc. He was a true lifesaver to me while playing basketball

I came to Athletic Advantage with a chronic knee injury I had dealt with for many years that was on the verge of ending my professional ballet career. I had seen numerous doctors and specialists throughout the country, and none were able to give me a proper diagnosis. On just my first visit with Dr. Johnson he was able to accurately identify the root cause of my injury and begin treatment. He clearly understood ballet and how a dancer's body works differently from other athletes. His attention to treating the entire body and not just one affected area has made me a stronger dancer than ever before.
I am a 20 year old dancer originally from Dallas, TX and currently training at The Juilliard School in New York City. I've been dancing since I was 3 years old and have struggled with many dance injuries. After searching for years for a great physical therapist to help me, I finally found Dr. Cody Johnson who has completely changed my body for the better! He made me recover from a three year long terrible ankle injury that was hindering my dance training in New York. I honestly thought my dance career was coming to an end before I found this amazing place and now can return to New York pain free! I had no progress with numerous other physical therapists in the Dallas metroplex and got extremely frustrated until I found Athletic Advantage. If you're in need of an incredible physical therapist, Dr. Cody Johnson is by far the best! Especially for dancers!
As a member of Team USA the amount of rigorous work and stress we take our body through it is imperative to maintain regular body maintenance. During 2013, I worked with Dr. Johnson in preparation for the 14th, I have worked with him sporadically over the years since 2007 due to my variety in training locations in the United States.
I have been a professional bboy and dancer for over 10 years, and in that time I've had quite a few small and bigger injuries that I've learned to live with. They have never healed correctly, and as I have continued on my path they've wreaked havoc on my performance. From posture, alignment, to even migraines. Dr. Cody Johnson has been instrumental in relieving the pain from upper shoulder muscle tension and back strains. Since a lot of pressure is placed on my back and shoulders doing certain moves, Dr. Johnson has been precise at zoning in on the right areas to apply his Trigger Point Dry Needling techniques. In addition to lasering and working with Storm on how to maintain my fitness, I've been seeing incredible results in training and muscle stamina. I would recommend that if you have ANY pain from any sports or dance related stress/strains/injuries -- SEE CODY at Athletic Advantage!
