Pain and Injury Prevention


 

ASSISTED MOBILITY SESSIONS

In order to move properly and reduce injury, we must restore joint range of motion, relieve muscular adhesions, and improve the musculoskeletal mechanics  of our bodies. These aspects can be challenging to accomplish on one's own. Human Movement offers Assisted Mobility Sessions to help improve your mobility and reduce joint and muscle pain. Techniques such as self-myofacial release (self-massage), assisted stretching, and joint capsule restoration are used by the movement coach to improve the qualities of mobility so you are able to focus on relaxing, and receive the full benefits of the techniques.

 

Whether you suffer from chronic pain (i.e. lower back, shoulder, or knee pain), or consistently fight a recurring injury, Human Movement can help. By improving movement mechanics and incorporating self-myofacial and mobility techniques, you will see a reduction of symptomatic pain within days, and with time and adherence to a  individualized prevention plan, your pain and injury will be reduced or eliminated.

MOBILITY MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

While Assisted Mobility is the preferred choice for making effective changes quickly, pain and injury prevention is a long-term process that can be developed through daily maintenance. Human Movement specialists will assist you in developing an individualized pain and injury prevention program for your specific chronic injury or sports need, and teach you how to properly perform each technique on your own through a hands-on training session. Consistent follow-up assessment will ensure that your pain subsides fully, and stays away.

 
 

SPORT-SPECIFIC MECHANICS ANALYSIS

When it comes to athletic endeavors, our bodies often find their physical limits. When subjected to thousands of repetitions of foot falls, pedal strokes, lifts, or serves, dysfunctional mechanics can lead to chronic knee injuries, hip pain, shoulder issues, and worse. Most non-contact injuries (patellofemoral syndrome, ACL/MCL tears, rotator cuff injuries, etc.) can be directly linked to dysfunctional movement. Human Movement will assess your sport-specific mechanics, determine if and what faults are present, and design a program for you to increase mobility, decrease dysfunction, reduce pain, and improve performance.
