Coaches, chiropractors, physical therapists, you name it, often get caught up in screens for “functional movements” and sport-specific movements.
While this is great, it’s not the only answer. One must realize that a screen is just that: a screen. A screen is not an assessment.
- Screen –> identifies generalized red flags.
- Assessment –> identifies specific needs & is diagnostic.
If you screen someone for a squat, and it’s a terrible squat, you don’t know why it’s terrible. It may be a foot, ankle, knee, hip, or spine limitation. Or maybe it’s a motor control dysfunction?
Until you ASSESS the individual joints, you’re essentially guessing.
And we don’t like guessing.
Start with the basics.
At Movement Upgraded, we assess almost every joint in your body. We know what a normal functioning joint is.
Normal functioning joints are essential for human movement.
And if your joints aren’t functioning the way humans’ joints are supposed to function, how do you expect to have good “functional” or sport-specific movement?
Something has to give.
