This assessment will give me the chance to take a look at how you stand, move and coordinate. The assessment is meant to give me a window into to the standing and moving dynamics of your body. I will try and identify weaknesses and restrictions that my be holding you back from strong, efficient and pain free movement. I use a combination of standing visual assessments as well functional strength tests and palpation of the soft tissue to assess how well your body is able to support your movement. I will also assess the flexibility of many of your joints. The assessment can be added at an additional cost to a bodywork, flexibility training or corrective exercise session and lasts 30min.
