What are the assessments?
The Low Back Fix Level 1 assessment is a six-point analysis of spinal health, flexibility, and stability.
We have found these are the KEY components to a healthy back.
To do this you will begin by testing and learning global movement patterns. A global movement pattern is the default way your body performs a task. Bending, twisting, reaching, and balancing are movements we do every day without much thought. An inability to perform these movements CORRECTLY well may be culprit for your back pain.
1. Global Flexion – Bending
2. Global Rotation – Twisting
3. Global Extension – Reaching
4. Posture – Standing
5. Single Leg Standing – Balance
6. Sit to Stand – Testing your ability to sit down and stand up pain free
These movements may be a distant hope and cause pain today but they are baseline measures for your health, longevity, and pain free future.
Customized Plan of Action
The result of each assessment will be scored and recorded so you can track your progress. Additionally, the results will provide you with a personalized action plan designed specifically to meet your movement needs.
If you struggle with flexibility, you will get specific work to increase range of motion. If you have trouble rotating your body, you will receive rotational drills to begin the process of rebuilding that movement pattern. The same applies for each area of limitation.
The Low Back Fix assessment is the baseline and hallmark of living a pain free life.
What results can I expect?
On average, in eight weeks, athletes and patients see a 70-100% reduction in pain depending on their baseline assessment.
By combining cutting edge physical therapy, intelligent strength-building, personalized assessments, and customized movement plans, you will have less back pain today, tomorrow, and forever.
