FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT AND REHABILITATION:
Functional rehabilitation refers to professional movement assessment and the development of a program to dynamically target specific needs utilizing a rehabilitation plan to get better. Each patient and injury is unique, as are the movement patterns that get damaged through injury. Functional rehabilitation addresses proprioception, loss of control, and step by step nervous system re-development in order to regain proper movement again. When an injury occurs, the body short circuits around the injury to allow you to keep moving or performing which most often results in compensation patterns and further damage. The usage of SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment®) and DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization®) techniques enable our Chiropractors to identify the failures that are occurring so that they may be properly rebuilt through retraining of the brain and body.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THERAPY:
Patients can expect to be guided through movement tests designed to provide a detailed assessment of fundamental movement patterns (such as bending and squatting). Based on the patient’s unique movement deficiencies and known musculoskeletal pain, prescriptive movement based therapeutic exercises will be assigned to target the dysfunctional movement patterns and related impairments.
A BCAK Certified Kinesiologist is a university trained exercise and movement specialist. Through customized and targeted exercise programs targeted for each individual to gain invaluable movement knowledge and awareness of their body’s function. Thus, reinforcing healthy movement patterns and strengthening the neuromuscular connections of the body to help strengthen and stabilize areas of limitation and prevent future injury by catching these faulty patterns before they develop into harmful injury provoking habits.
