How Do We Do It?
When was the last time you saw a healthy person with poor posture? When was the last time you saw an unhealthy person with a great posture? NEVER – That is because the two don’t go together.
There is a map of your movement and sensation in your brain called Homunculus. This map gets changed and modified based on your lifestyle, and choices. If movement is a concert, your brain is the conductor, this map is the musical note and your body parts are the musicians. We need to first know if the ‘musical note’ is the one that is based on the original (factor design) mechanics of your movement and THAT is what makes my exam unique.
Brain-based Neurology and Posture is what I am talking about. So once we see your today’s ‘map’ then we can see what needs to be changed. This is what positive neuroplasticity is all about. Now we need to know if the ‘musicians know when to chime in and phase out’ and THAT is what Functional Movement assessment is. Another uniqueness about the type of exam you get at Irvine Spine and Wellness Center.
It may be pain that got you motivated or maybe you just don’t have the energy you wish you had. It may be optimizing your athletic performance if you are an athlete or maybe you just wish to improve the quality of your life. No matter what your reason- your activities at work, your personal life, your sleeping habits, your general work-out habits- your ‘story’ is unique to you and the clue to any deviation from health.
All of those factors are evaluated so you can make the necessary changes to be the hero of this adventure. We may refer you for X-rays of relevant areas depending on the exam findings and schedule a report of your findings so you know from the start which areas we need to focus on.
Report of your findings
We will need time to put all pieces of the puzzle together to see what your ‘story’ is. A clear road map to your health goal will be spelled out so you know EXACTLY what the outline of your treatment will be. This is when the following questions are answered:
- What is wrong with me?
- Can it be fixed?
- How long is it going to take?
- What is going to take place treatment wise?
- How much is this going to take?
- What should I expect?
Based on what your health wishes are, your tailored treatment plan will be discussed with everything spelled out but not at the get go!! I don’t predict the future but I promise to tell you soon after we start the preliminary work of Functional Rehab. If we know the facts and limitations, but are on a team that is determined to win, I don’t see why you would not see the change you wish to make.
