Personal Flexibility Assessment
To Stretch, or Not to Stretch?
That is the question. While most people recognize the performance benefits of strengthening and conditioning, stretching programs are controversial, or neglected altogether. Does it help prevent injury, or can it cause it? Does it improve athletic performance, or does it degrade it? When athletes do stretch, they often use the same old, tired exercises that have been practiced for generations, regardless of the sport/activity or purpose (warm up, cool down, injury prevention/treatment, etc.), and without justification by the latest scientific evidence.
A Personal Flexibility Assessment from Fusion Physical Therapy clarifies all the conflicting information and will teach you powerful and effective techniques tailored to your specific needs. Practicing this system will also allow you to more effectively prevent and manage pain and injury. We are confident that you will feel and/or move better after just one session!
What to Expect
This is not your parents’ stretching program! Your assessment will consist of a variety of functional movements and flexibility tests to assess your current strengths and areas that need further attention. After a careful review of your results, suggestions will be made to address your personal needs and goals.
These might include:
Self myofascial release
Self myofascial stretching
Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM)
Manual stretching (therapist assisted)
Sport specific stretching
