Imagine you’re training for a big sporting event – maybe a marathon or a long-distance cycle ride. Or maybe you’ve just decided it’s time to get fit and you’re planning on some long-term exercise which could prove to be intensive.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way of being able to scientifically reduce the risk of injury?
At our Harley Street clinic, we’ve developed a precise and comprehensive screening tool, which uses tests, observed activity and technology to detect muscle imbalance in the body.
When a joint is incorrectly aligned, the performance of the muscles that are designed to protect it become compromised and as a result they weaken and become overloaded. This is the point at which you become prone to injury and pain.
By observing the way your joints move through their normal functional range, we can offer training advice, guidance and exercises that will help you to change the way you train, reduce the stress you put on vulnerable parts of your body and prevent the injury and pain that forces you to stop doing what you’re doing.
Muscle Imbalance Screening is also useful for work-related performance, whether your job is sedentary or labour-intensive.
Our Muscle Imbalance Screening service is conveniently located for Marylebone, Regent Street, Oxford Circus, Great Portland Street and Euston.
A muscle imbalance screen is an in depth assessment that endeavours to find out any discrepancies in strength or length within certain groups of muscles. These discrepancies can cause pain or functional limitations.
We test for imbalances using specific screening. These could include muscle strength testing, looking at joint movement limitations, the muscle length around a joint, and also the muscle control.
A muscles imbalance screen costs £92.
Your assessment will be carried out by an experienced physio. All our physios are trained to find, assess and correct these imbalances.
There is no need to worry about muscle imbalances. Firstly you are in the right place and you have made a conscious effort to read about your imbalance. As humans, we always have a dominant side. This in itself is a muscle imbalance.
