Our Process

Movement is a key part of what we do at Movement Mechanics. Our ethos revolves around a three step process that has a soul goal. This goal is to reconnect the dots which in turn improves function.

Movement Analysis

Movement analysis of functional skills, work specific and sports specific skills is  critical to providing clues to revealing the underlying causes of dysfunction and pain. Additionally, correction of movement deficits and dysfunction is the key to sustainable improvements for our clients. “Improve your movement efficiency, effectiveness and quality”

Assess Body Systems

A thorough understanding and assessment of all possible contributing body systems and structures; their mechanics, physiology and pathophysiological processes is essential to the problem solving process. Each client is individually assessed with their presenting scenario so that the key causes can be pinpointed and targeted in intervention programs.

Target Key Areas for Enhancement

Movement mechanics’ physiotherapists use thorough assessment to identify the key areas causing blocks to reaching full functional movement potentials. Intervention programs are then specifically designed to target these key areas  so that maximum benefits can be achieved for intervention inputs delivered.
