- Over 1 million people visited a doctor last year for plantar fasciitis.
- Lower back symptoms affect 80% of the population costing $26 billion a year.
- 21% of the general population experiences shoulder pain of which 40% experience these symptoms for over 1 year at an estimated annual cost of 39 billion.
- People with history of musculoskeletal pain tend to perform worse than with no history of pain.
- Persistent pain reinforces negative attitudes about the relationship of activities (work) and pain as one “learns to live with it” which further decreases productivity and potential for recovery.
HOW FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREENS PREVENT INJURIES
Musculoskeletal pain and injuries are usually viewed as surprising, uncontrollable and unfortunate circumstances. What if the occurrence is not as random as it appears? What if injury potential can be measured? What if many potentially injuries could be prevented?
Recent methods in sports medicine use movement screening as a means to predict injury potential.
To identify high-risk movement patterns and provide a basis for what will most effectively reduce injury risk.
These cutting edge tools identify problems in your body which can lead to injury and provides a program to improve outcomes. These are the same tools currently used by several Olympic doctors, professional and collegiate sports teams, developed in human performance labs. Through the Movement Efficiency Testing we will analyze your total body movement, provide you a score, and a customized solution to correct errors.
IT'S ALL ABOUT CREATING MOVEMENT EFFICIENCY
Movement efficiency is the foundation for injury and decreased performance and enhanced recovery.
Key Components of Movement Efficiency:
- Core and Functional Strength
- Dynamic Flexibility
- Reactive Neuromuscular Control
A baseline Movement Efficiency assessment reveals how movement deficiencies affect performance. This permits us to focus on specific weaknesses to improve flexibility, strength, and manage performance outcomes with specific feedback measuring progress.
