Dysfunctional movement patterns are likely to lead to injuries, poor movement patterns limit performance, learn to train optimally within current mobility limits whilst simultaneously addressing limitations to minimise injury risk and maximise performance benefits
Do you want to:
Move more efficiently?
Find out WHY you move as you do?
Find out HOW to change your movements if needed?
Perform better at your sport/exercises?
Reduce your injury risk?
A series of ‘exercise’ techniques to improve intrinsic function
Muscle energy techniques (anti spasms or muscle releases), nerve mobilisations & pure joint mobilisations. Along with strengthening & conditioning exercise
Low grade & easy to perform by anyone of any level, ability or age.
These revolutionary techniques are the perfect way to prepare the body for movement. We live in a very different world today to the one our bodies are designed for and so they haven’t had time to evolve quickly enough to this new, more sedentary, lifestyle filled with technology. This is contributing to many of the physical changes and low grade niggles we are experiencing today.
These techniques can be done at your desk in the office, as a warm up prior to your usual exercise programme and even in the recovery station of your circuit class. They really are the safest ‘exercises’ on the planet!
The Move Well Project is a sub-clinical, drug free system to improve quality of movement and manage the causes of chronic pain. Many traditional methods of medicine and therapy are amazingly effective for acute medical conditions but fall short of effectively managing lower level (though often debilitating) chronic conditions brought on by the demands of daily life.
The Move Well Project starts with a comprehensive biomechanical assessment of each client identifying their mobility and stability limitations. From there the client receives a tailored management programme for them to follow to address these limitations. Often within a few sessions clients report dramatically reduced pain and learn how to manage their own pain.
The Move Well Project differs from Physiotherapy and other traditional therapies by taking a full body assessment of all clients, not focusing simply on the areas of pain that are often the result of deferred pain from dysfunction in other areas of the body
Who Is the Move Well Project Appropriate For?
If you have an acute injury then you need to see a doctor and they will advise upon a course of action from there. The Move Well Project may well be appropriate for you to minimise the risk of on-going problems or recurring acute injury but only once you are through the initial rehabilitation of the acute injury.
If you have been suffering the same chronic pain for a while and are functioning at a level where your doctor recommends you participate in low level activity and movement then the Move Well Project is for you.
Chris Peil is the Biomechanics coach who developed the system
It is recommended by the NHS to keep moving and to strengthen the areas required to support your back. To do this successfully you have to know you are doing the appropriate things to improve the situation, otherwise you could make it worse. The Move Well Project is assessment led and therefore identifies the areas you need to address.
The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body and as a result is prone to problems where it compensates for other limitations in your body. The Move Well Project addresses the whole body to improve muscle balance and joint stability which allows the shoulder to sit in a better position, have a better balance of mobility and stability itself and allow chronic pain to disappear.
Quite simply, you cannot produce force in a range of motion you do not have. If you can't get into an optimal position for your sport or activity you cannot perform there. If you're serious about your performance get assessed and see which areas you can improve that you didn't even know are limiting you
