Whereas the previous screen was intended to identify red flags, this assessment will consist of clinically-based testing to produce both a medical diagnosis and a functional movement capacity diagnosis.
The initial assessment is complete and it's time for some hands-on evaluation of Dave's movement, using these seven key movements. The compensation patterns and pain indicators observed in this step will be used in the next phase of the process.
One of the most common causes of injury is accumulation of load on a tissue, tendon, or ligament that exceeds that tissue, tendon, or ligament's capacity. For optimal rehabilitation and recovery, you need to understand and manage this relationship.
Years of pushing his body to the limit has left Dave with two hip replacements, numerous shoulder surgeries, more injuries than he can recall, constant daily pain, and restricted movement. It's time for a change.
