A movement screen is performed by the patient (demonstrated and assessed by the doctor) to help gain an understanding of how the patient moves throughout their daily life. This will look at basic movements of the joints, allowing the doctor to plan what movements need to be further assessed.
A movement analysis will take the information from the movement screen and apply further, more complicated movements to the patients. This will again give the doctor valuable insight into how the muscles are being used and how they are activating or not activating. This information will provide the doctor with the information necessary for hands on treatment, as well as supervised and at home exercises.
