Most times patients are unaware of movement inefficiency until movement becomes symptomatic. Adam specializes in Integrated Movement Assessments that address why a patient’s symptoms occurred while educating patients on what caused them.
Movement is an act of changing physical location or position. Think of this as a sequence of segments (your body parts) within a specific task – a task a patient selects or demands. That task can be anything from stair climbing, getting out of bed, to playing a recreational or a professional sport. If the sequencing of movement is efficient then the patient usually feels great. If the sequencing is off, the patient may not feel symptoms initially, but eventually, the body will begin to protect itself and react with pain, discomfort, aches, and stiffness that lead to compensations and decreased ability to perform.
