Identification and Diagnosis
How can we say that we are able to improve your function if we do not fully understand your dysfunction or limitation? We can't. But if we spend the time completing a thorough assessment these variables become more apparent, and clarity is what we are all about!
We will objectively show you what we are aiming to improve so that these measures can be compared as you progress. Go on, blow us away!
For assessment and diagnosis we use:
Retraining and facilitation
Of course we do not expect you to just do as you're told! Now we are not talking about any suppressed disobedient streaks but rather that this stuff is just pretty tricky. There are very few people who are able to make these kind of changes without assistance.
We are set up with a wide range of methods to teach you some good habits. This might be how you recruit a certain muscle or possibly position yourself.
Sports Lab will help you to make the subtle changes so that your improvements are sustainable and not just one season wonders.By utilising technology in parts of this phase we can be more accurate and give you some useful visual feedback.
A number of recent research articles have found that with multiple types of feedback, including visual, exercises are up to 10x more effective than without this additional input. This also means if you are working on these things at home you will be more accurate and therefore more effective.
What good are your fancy new moves if you don't now how to spin them together on the dance floor?!
Once you understand what is holding you back (diagnosis) and how to retrain these areas it's time to throw it all together in an action that is meaningful and useful to you.
Functional movement means something that applies more closely to your sport or activity that we are trying to modify. Generally we will move through
This applies to a long list of movement types and whilst we won't bore you with the details here, if you want to move better, contact us to find out about similar clients we have helped in the past.
We don't leave any lab locals behind. Once you are #madeinthelab we promise you won't be solo two stepping on the dancefloor!
