Global Movement Assessment

Global Movement Assessment

The Global Movement Assessment (GMA) is a comprehensive diagnostic approach used in chiropractic care to evaluate the overall function and quality of a patient's movement patterns. This assessment helps chiropractors identify musculoskeletal imbalances and dysfunctions that may be contributing to pain or impairing physical performance, allowing for the development of a targeted and effective treatment plan.

How It Works

The Global Movement Assessment involves a series of tests and evaluations designed to examine various aspects of movement, including flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, and joint function. These tests help chiropractors understand how well the body moves as a whole and identify any compensatory patterns or restrictions that could lead to injury or decreased performance. Advanced diagnostic tools, such as motion capture technology and functional movement screens, may also be used to provide detailed insights into the patient's movement capabilities.

Key Benefits

- Comprehensive Evaluation: The GMA provides a thorough examination of movement patterns, identifying areas of dysfunction that may not be apparent through traditional diagnostic methods.

- Personalized Care: By understanding the specific movement imbalances affecting a patient, chiropractors can develop a customized treatment plan tailored to the patient's unique needs.

- Injury Prevention and Performance Enhancement: Addressing movement dysfunctions can help prevent injuries and improve overall physical performance, benefiting athletes and active individuals.

What to Expect

During a Global Movement Assessment, the chiropractor will perform a variety of tests to evaluate the patient's movement patterns. This may include observing the patient perform specific movements or exercises, assessing range of motion, and using advanced diagnostic equipment to analyze movement quality. The assessment is designed to be interactive and informative, providing the patient with valuable insights into their movement health. Following the assessment, the chiropractor will review the results and discuss the findings with the patient, outlining a personalized treatment plan based on the identified movement issues.

Ideal for

The Global Movement Assessment is suitable for patients experiencing a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, including chronic pain, sports injuries, and decreased physical performance. It is particularly beneficial for athletes, active individuals, and those seeking to improve their overall movement efficiency and prevent future injuries.
