Screening

MOVEMENT SCREENING

Movement screening is the process of analyzing an individual’s movement abilities for the purpose of understanding how that person uses their body.  The human body is designed to move a certain way based on how the structures (bones, muscles, and soft tissue) are put together.  How an individual moves and organizes this complex system contributes to their physical performance and or mechanisms of injury.  This can be influenced by factors such as age, activity level, types of activities, sustained postures, repetitive movements, limb length, previous injury, weight, etc.  

BENEFITS OF SCREENING

  • Screening helps to simplify the complexity of human movement and identify what components are substandard.
  • Screening establishes the baseline, help set realistic goals, and measures progress.
  • Screening allows us to individualize programing to each athlete maximizing effectiveness of training time and effort.
  • Screening increases programing effectiveness by determining which strategies produce measurable progress.

TYPES OF SCREENS

ANTI-AGING
ADULT FITNESS

There are certain movement systems within the human body that can age at an accelerated rate if not utilized properly in every day life.  The rate at which the decay happens is determined by genetics, age, daily activities, stress, sleep, nutrition, hydration, weight, and body composition.  Our anti-aging screen identifies which  systems are substandard to maximize your training time and effort to age slowly and gracefully. 

SPORTS
PERFORMANCE

Our sports performance screens are designed to measure all of the physical characteristics needed to compete in todays world of athletics.  Whether you are an amatuer, youth, student, collegiate, or professional athlete, our screening system is adaptable to all ages and levels.  We will idenfity substandard areas, decrease mechanism of injury, and increase physical performance.

Step 1: Body Scan (All Screens)

In order to determine the needs of an individual we must first start with what that individual is made up of.  Does the person have enough muscle to support their physical structure?  Is there enough muscle in the needed areas of the body?  These are questions that must be answered, so we use an InBody Scanner to address these questions.  This provides us a not only metrics to track progress, but an unbiased assessment of the current state of available soft tissue.

Step 2: Movement Analysis (All Screens)

At the foundation of all athletic endeavour is the ability to create joint motion, control posture, and coordinate fundamental movement patterns.  Over the years practitioners have use various screen, assessments to try to evaluate the basic motions.  We have discovered and now relay on 3D motion capture technology to replace hands on and visual assessments.  This provides a reliable and repeatable method to see motion that cannot be captured by the eye alone.  Kintesense technology ensures we don’t miss that crucial compensation that may lead to injury or create a performance barrier.

Step 3: Performance Test (All Screens)

The ability to produce and reduce force (athletic power) is the currency that makes the sports world go round.  Producing force at a high rate is what make you swing fast, throw harder, run quicker, and jump higher.  The Protues machine allows us to power map a players body.  Once we know how much force and be produced and how quickly, we can program training plans to optimize power in the right joint and right angle to see the results on the field.
