Services / Movement Screen
We help you identify potential issues before they interrupt your life.
At Invigor Health, we believe that prevention trumps cure, every time.
Of course, injury and pain can always happen - often unexpectedly.
In these situations, it makes sense to focus on relief, rehabilitation and recovery.
And physiotherapy is a fantastic, effective tool in achieving all of the above.
But from years of experience in this industry, here’s something we know:
Many experiences of injury can be prevented.
More often than not, we can trace symptoms of pain back to a relatively simple root cause.
When you don’t identify this cause early enough? That’s when things get complicated.
That’s when the risk of injury compounds.
But that initial issue often starts out as something preventable.
And that means there is a huge benefit in taking a proactive approach to your health, fitness and wellbeing.
By having an awareness how your current physiology and lifestyle could contribute to injury?
You can care for your body in a way that keeps you active, resilient and pain-free, now and in the long-term.
Our Functional Movement Screening gives you a proactive, comprehensive picture of how your body is currently functioning.
It brings together sophisticated body analysis tools and personalised consultation.
Rather than our physiotherapy service which targeted pre-existing injury or pain, this generalised body scan is designed to identify potential issues before they occur.
Here’s how it works
We take you through a guided suite of tests, whole-body scans and practical exercises to assess the strength and mobility of your joints and your neuromuscular control.
With access to a fully functional gym (located onsite at our Bondi practice) and sophisticated diagnostic tools, we can get a clear and granular understanding of any abnormalities that could make you susceptible to injury.
These can include:
- Weakness, stiffness or hyper mobility in your joints
- Movement control dysfunction (muscles that don’t activate in the correct pattern, meaning you can’t coordinate your movement efficiently)
- Any risk-factors that could be contributed to the type or intensity of your current exercise regime
- Abnormalities that could relate to your health history, previous injuries or lifestyle factors
