Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) 

Why do I need genetic testing? 
Injury related genetic testing allows you to gain a better understanding of your predisposition to specific injury and how your body metabolizes certain performance related substances such as caffeine and ibuprofen. By examining previous injury history, the demands of your current sport and your specific genetic report allows our performance staff to develop programming and advise you on your best course of action to avoid further injury and achieve your specific goals.

What do you do with my genetic material?  
Your genetic material is sent to a lab in Atlanta, Georgia where it is tested for the specific indicators set forth by Axgen and then destroyed after testing is complete.

How does genetic testing work?  
Genetic testing works by capturing your DNA and sending it to a testing facility were it is analyzed to collect data and sent back to you and Howard Head Performance to review.
