At Health-Fit Chiropractic& Sports Medicine, biomechanical assessments and functional movement testing is an integral part of the evaluation, treatment, sports rehab and performance process. Once the pain symptoms have subsided to the point where movement is unaffected, the patient is put through a series of functional tests. These functional tests are designed to test the quality of movement and to determine if any muscles are excessively tight or weak, and if the firing pattern is out of sequence. Determination of muscular imbalances and/or movement dysfunction is crucial in developing a plan of attack that not only help in the treatment of the injury/pain, but also prevent its reoccurrence.In conjunction with the functional movement testing, all of runners and golfers are assessed using video analysis. Our runners are video taped walking and running. Our golfers either bring in recent video of their golf swing or are video taped at the office. Dr. Christie will then analyze your video with V1 Software to determine any injury causative factors. The purpose of the video analysis is not to critique technique, but if it is determined your technique may be causing your injury, a referral to a running or swing coach will be recommended.
