What is a functional movement assessment?

Our technology allows us to assess three-dimensional functional movement, ranges of motion, gait, posture, and balance control to better understand why you became injured or are experiencing a barrier to better athletic performance. We use this information to custom-make a unique approach to help you achieve your goals.

An athlete is required to perform regardless of equipment, environmental conditions, injury, and mental clarity. It is vital for an athlete to possess stability and coordination movement foundational to performance so these examples of the performance affecting factors can be mitigated.

In approximately 30 minutes, the results of our 3D functional movement assessment can inform training and other support essentials so an athlete can develop appropriately to be successful.

How is the functional movement assessment performed?

The athlete performs movements that are captured by a video camera and software that allow one of our doctors to evaluate and identify faulty performance and movement nuances that may be affecting an athlete’s overall performance or resilience to injury.
