Functional Movement Assessment. I use the Selected Functional Movement Assessment with every patient and client. Assessing movement is the cornerstone to everything that I do. I believe HOW you do something is very important. Quality of movement should always trump quantity. Through my study of movement assessment, chiropractic and kinesiology, I now know what quality movement is. Simply put it is to move with good alignment. With injuries or inefficient movement our bodies use too much of one joint or muscle and not enough of another. Through my assessment I look for these imbalances. With treatment I use my knowledge of Function, Anatomy and Biomechanics to balance your musculoskeletal (joint & muscles) and nervous systems.
