You’ve made the commitment to get in shape or maybe to take your physical fitness to the next level and started working with a trainer. Eager to start seeing results, you jump into your new routine feet-first. And the next sound you hear is “ouch” as a workout injury derails your healthful plans.
This is a common situation that can be prevented with a pre workout Functional movement assessment with Dr. Karl. Dr. Karl uses a Selective Functional Movement assessment to identify mechanical deficiencies that can contribute to injuries that occur in the gym when starting a new program. The goal is to identify the areas in your body that need specific stability training or mechanical therapy prior to starting a more vigorous workout. If there is a mechanical dysfunction, Dr. Karl may prescribe chiropractic treatments or Active Release Technique to help restore normal mechanics and remove the associated discomfort. If there is a stability issue, Dr. Karl can direct your trainer on the area of your body that needs stability training and or strength training in order to prevent a future injury. If you are tired of nagging injuries affecting your workouts, or if your injury keeps returning and is it slow to respond to traditional types of care – Call to schedule your selective functional movement assessment with Dr. Karl.
