Movement Health

A common sense approach to evaluating and correcting movement

1

A Systematic Approach

Screen: This initial step identifies individuals with potential movement issues efficiently. The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a notable tool developed for this purpose.

 

Test: A deeper evaluation delves into specific movement patterns, pinpointing root causes of dysfunction and assessing factors like strength, flexibility, and balance.

 

Assess: This assessment (SFMA) diagnoses and comprehends underlying causes of movement problems found in screening and testing. It guides individualized interventions and serves as a progress benchmark.

Hardware vs. Software

  • Hardware: This refers to the body's physical structure, such as bones and muscles, which can sustain injuries needing therapy or surgery.

  • Software: This pertains to motor control and movement patterns, influenced by neuromuscular factors, and typically improved through training.

Addressing both hardware and software issues is crucial for enhancing function and minimizing the risk of injury in movement assessment and rehabilitation.

 

2

Patterns, not Parts

It's more effective to assess and address MOVEMENT PATTERNS throughout the body rather than isolating and treating individual body parts or specific muscles.

 

PAIN AND DYSFUNCTION often result from faulty movement patterns, and simply addressing the symptomatic body part may not provide long-term relief.

Protect | Correct | Develop

Protect: In this phase, safety during basic movements is the focus, preventing injury and assessing potential issues.

Correct: Addressing and resolving movement dysfunctions, Cook stresses individualized interventions to improve movement quality.

Develop: Enhancing performance and fitness comes after protective measures and corrections. Gradual progression towards fitness goals is key.
