We know the challenges of getting older, especially with injuries. Our concern is to protect the body so all parts keep up functional independence over a life-time. The muscles & bones of the body provide the framework to perform movements & functions like walking, standing, driving, & reaching. From a biomechanical point of view, the joint reaction forces & surface congruency are important components to the successful stabilization & mobility of the body.
Neuromuscular timing also is an indicator of movement function. This can be seen through sequencing coordinated movement. Dysfunctional movement describes when you change the way you move to remain active. For example, you may limp when walking, or lean to one side when squatting, or opening a door with the same hand. The uneven wear or the body over weeks, months, and years can lead to other orthopedic conditions & symptoms like pain, numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, & and loss of joint range of motion. Addressing an injury from the moment it is discovered reduces the time of recovery as well as unwanted, unsuspecting compensations.
