Movement Therapy/Analysis Whether your goal is health and fitness, to counteract soft tissue injuries and joint discomfort, or to condition for your work or sport, our individualized Movement Therapy option is available. To describe what movement therapy is, we must look at the definition of movement. Movement is a sequence of segments (think body parts) within a specific task. That task can be anything from stair climbing, getting out of bed, to playing professional athletics. No matter what level the task (movement) there is an efficient way to perform. If the sequencing of movement is efficient then you usually feel great, get to where you want to go and never have aches and pains, stiffness or things you can't do. If the sequencing is less than optimum, you may not feel symptoms right away but eventually the body will attempt to protect itself by reacting with pain, discomfort, aches and stiffness, leading to compensation. In turn this leads to a decreased ability to perform the various tasks you once were able to do.
Our specialty lies in assessing your current movement ability, in other words your ability to sequence movements, so we can then design a plan to improve your efficiency.
