Functional Assessments for Optimal Living


Muscle Testing

Muscle Testing...

A structural assessment is a series of passive and active muscle testing that gives insight on muscle strength, weakness and limitation.  This assessment helps body-based practitioners and fitness professionals to see muscle recruitment strategies which have developed in order to compensate for weakness, overuse and limited range of motion; often leading to pain and dysfunction.  Information gained in a structural assessment helps to find solutions that restore balance and bring relief from pain.


Plantar Stabilization Assessment

Distributing the weight of the body properly among the bones of the foot is important for standing, walking and exercising without causing damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia (soft tissue) of the foot; proper foot planting also stabilizes the knee and hip joints to effectively support the pelvic girdle and all its soft tissue, which anchors the spine.

Women's bodies endure extream changes in hormones and weight, they also endure poor body mechanics, overuse and  fatigue during the childbearing years; all this leads to aches and pains of the foot, calfs, knees, hips, pelvis and spine and can often be traced to improper distribution of weight in the feet.  Pilates uses this assessment as a tool to attain optimal results, it can also be scheduled as a stand alone session to gain more insight to the causes of acute or chronic pain in the lower body and lumbar.  

Book any Pilates session with Kelly to receive this assessment or schedule it as a stand along session under the Functional Assessments tab in the online booking tool.

Functional Movement Screening (FMS)

Functional Movement Screening (FMS)

Putting physical demands on a body that is not moving optimally can easily make any existing dysfunction worse.  FMS is an important first step to any fitness program, otherwise gains made from exercise efforts could come at the price of injury, chronic discomfort or pain.

FMS is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality. This screening also shows whether there is a mobility or motor control restraint to be addressed.  FMS aids your trainer in assigning corrective exercises and integrating them into your overall fitness program.

Book any Personal Training session with Brooke to receive this screening or schedule it as a stand-alone session under the Functional Assessments tab
