Move To Integrate

Overview

Move to Integrate is a new approach to assessment with dynamic postural & functional analysis. 

A fast and efficient client centred assessment of the whole body. This is the middle ground between a general glance at the whole structure and specific orthopaedic tests. A logical and detailed method of examining the whole system and its inner-relationships.

Move from a postural model towards also assessing function. Treatments can then be applied using table-based, standing, or exercise interventions – all with the intention to improve the client’s quality of movement and remove inappropriate strains.

Allowing accurate identification of the most potent place to begin treatment, without chasing pain. Create a tailored approach for each individual within the time available in clinic.

Utilising Diane Lee’s Integrated Systems Model as a base our approach to postural & functional analysis lets you start asking better questions about how to improve the client’s efficiency. 

Posture and movement should be metabolically economical it should not be hard work. Our tensegrity-based approach is not locked in any protocol – just based on the reality of anatomy and can be adapted to your modality.

We will explore the influence of gravity and ground reaction forces in relation to real anatomy and give you the ability to see the real picture. With no jargon and no false promises. This will give you the freedom to then explore with your own lens.

The approach is simple and based in real-world anatomy, we will look at:

Effects of Compression – Gravity, ground reaction force and the natural coupling through the skeletal system and how it might affect soft tissues.

Effects of Tension or ‘Shortness’ – What is the soft tissue balance? More importantly, what has changed in the soft tissues’ ability for movement?

Effects of Weakness in the Tissues – Viewing the body as a tensegrity system, it requires enough inherent stiffness or tone within the soft tissues as well the bones.

What happens when we lose that tone and how can we get it back?

Good programs come from good assessments. Although postural analysis is NOT a diagnosis, it is a beginning of good assessment, the source of better questions and the start of training your eye for the efficiency of movement.

Our clients need to function in the real-world but many assessments, treatments and sometimes even the criteria for client discharge are based on non-contextual and non-load bearing tests. By applying a fully tensegrity-based approach to manual therapy we can work in context and with loads to better prepare our clients for life in the real world.
