Functional Movements

Uncategorized Feb 18, 2019

These are movements based on real-world situational biomechanics. They usually involve multi-planar, multi-joint movements which place demand on the body's core musculature and innervation. Functional movements take place in multi-planes of motion with the use of multiple joints. It is the ability to move our body without extra effort and pain-free. These movements require the firing of multiple muscle groups in various positions, ranges of motion and varying intensity to achieve a common goal. For example, bending down and reaching over to pick-up your child and rotating through your core to put him/her in the car seat.
