What do I Assess?

Posture – viewed from the front, back and sides.

Movement assessment – transitional (movement without a change in your base of support) and dynamic (movement with a change in your base of support).

Gait analysis – observation of the relationship and movement qualities of your  limbs during running and walking with specific attention applied to your lower limbs.

Range of Motion – use of a goniometer to measure the joint angles through which you are able to actively move.

Flexibility – an assessment of the length of your muscles when stretched passively.

Strength – manual muscle testing used to compare both sides (left and right) where applicable.
