DYNAMIC MOVEMENT SKILLS AND MOVEMENT RE-PATTERNING
The philosophy behind this approach to rehabilitation is based on The Five Phases of Rehabilitation and neuromuscular movement re-education. The overriding factor is the importance of having a functional approach. The Five Phases of Rehabilitation:
i) Early movement and body control
ii) Motor control re-education
iii) Individual functional movement
iv) Proprioception & strength
v) Dynamic movement development & return to sport
Following injury or surgery, or due to habitual movement there is an interruption in the movement patterns and the body will try and compensate to keep moving and to assist with recovery. My role is to try and stop the pain and to guide you back to full fitness. This element of rehabilitation is progressive from basic movement re-education to functional neuromotor stimulation, to dynamic movement development.
However, DMS is not only useful in rehabilitation but also to improve your running technique and great for a lot of sports such as football to improve speed, agility, balance, coordination, responsiveness, reaction times. It can also be very beneficial for anyone who is Dyspraxic, especially children helping them to develop more functional movement patterns.
DMS can be used for all ages and with dedication and commitment to a training program, you will see great results.
