Our physiotherapists use knowledge of human anatomy coupled with extensive knowledge of human movement to establish movement impairments associated with pain and dysfunction.
Poor biomechanics result in movement mistakes and performance compensations. Our therapists isolate these faults and create functional programs to correct body alignment, muscle coordination and posture. These programmes integrate the areas of strengthening, flexibility, endurance, power and speed. We use integrated exercises in multiple planes that incorporate acceleration, deceleration and stabilisation. This multi-joint and multi-plane focus recruits several muscle groups to achieve the desired adaptive response. Our focus is to train the body with regimes based on function, life and recreational demands. We aim to be sports and life ‘appropriate’ with our regimes rather than purely muscle specific
‘Improving motor/movement patterns will improve performance’
As part of our assessment you may undergo several movement screen tests. These help isolate impairments and are also useful tools in demonstrating performance gains.
