Biomechanical, functional and postural assessments are a part of Melbourne Osteopathy Sports Injury Centre’s case management approach to all our patients. It is a must for all individuals whether you are an athlete preparing for a race or returning from injury, an office worker, someone suffering chronic pain, a Pilates or Yoga client who is limited in their practice or if you just wish to improve your posture.
This precise assessment is used as a tool to enhance your current practice and function. Our practitioners, through this detailed assessment, communicate this information to other health care professionals at the Clinic. This multi-practitioner approach to your health has been proven to be an effective and an efficient means of resolving your pain and retuning you to work or training in a quick and timely manner.
These 30 minute assessments are performed by our highly experienced Osteopaths with the purpose of identifying dysfunctions within the body.
The assessment includes a range of musculoskeletal tests:
- Range of motion testing of joints
- Strength and power testing of muscles
- Functional analysis of movement patterns
- Postural assessment
Once the assessment has been performed a detailed report will be provided. This report will detail such things as best treatment plan; rehabilitation plan for your injury; training required to improve your results; return to work program; daily exercise diary and essential living advice.
