Orthopedic Physical Examination
We don't guess, we assess. Using a wide range of diagnostic equipment and techniques (such as goiniometers, calipers, inclinometers, pressure sensors, EMG's, muscle testing, nerve testing, and more.) we can conduct a full, objective, physical range of motion evaluation. The resulting data will help us identify the sources of your health or performance obstacles, allowing us to target high priority areas in your movement plan. Our objective is to prescribe exercise and stretching/mobilization routines with surgical precision.
Movement Assessment & Consultation
We will evaluate and advise on ANY movements.
Our primary focus is on 7 primal movement patterns necessary to complete real-life activities: Squat, Bend, Lunge, Push, Pull, Twist, and Gait. We use these as building blocks to coach the full range of movement challenges, from the simplest of tasks to most complex.
Nutrition & Lifestyle evaluation with counseling
Every human body runs on its own unique fuel mix. This mix must include real foods with a healthy balance of energy (calories) and nutrition (vitamins and minerals). Through an interview, questionnaires, food reaction evaluation, metabolic typing, and lab testing when needed, The Body Tailor will help you fine-tune your diet to suit your unique physiology and lifestyle requirements. We will show you how to eat nutrient dense food that satisfies, energizes, and naturally regulates your weight. Our guidance in making improvements to the controllable elements of your life like nutrition, hydration, rest, and physical environment, will positively effect your performance as a whole.
Complete Exercise Program Design
Exercise should address your real-life demands. Making an office worker do nothing but stabilized machine training is as useless as making a sumo wrestler jog a mile on a daily basis. The Body Tailor will plot the course and guide you through the active steps you need to take in order to get your training right.
We will combine information from your physical evaluation with all areas of your health care, lifestyle, and/or sport specific training into a practical, understandable, and individualized training program. We will prescribe exercises--controlling all variables and giving precise attention to detail.
