HIGH PERFORMANCE CLINIC

Movement Analysed.
Pain Understood. Solutions Created.

Welcome to the world’s most advanced gait analysis tech, the only one of its kind in the UK and the only one used with my skill-set: to objectively analyse your joint movements in order to use MOVEMENT to unlock and build your athletic potential.

Your body is a complete, communicative unit – even when it’s in pain and/or locked into a particular shape. Your bony framework is linked together with joints, providing the potential for effective, efficient, comfortable movement.

Now whilst the subject of joint mechanics – or biomechanics to some – is endlessly complex, we can conceptualise it into elegant simplicity merely by swapping the word ‘joints’ for ‘doors’. If all those ‘doors’ throughout your body were wide open, you’d collapse to the floor with no integrity to your structural strength. On the other hand, if all your ‘doors’ were closed tight, you’d be rooted to the spot – all structural strength but no movement.

Balance between ‘open’ and ‘closed’ is required, and when present, we might express our movement as a synchronized, graceful dance of some doors opening, and some doors closing. When movement doesn’t look or feel ‘graceful’, ‘effortless’ or ‘fluid’ (and equally when chronic pain persists), we could look structurally to see where some doors have had to stay ajar continually as an adaptation for others that have become locked tight.

Your knee is a great example of this. It is a fairly simple and stable ‘door’, designed to bend and straighten and twist (a little) and bear more than your bodyweight when running and jumping. So why do knees seem to ‘break’ so often?

Have you considered that your knee is simply the end result of whatever the top of the thigh bone is doing in the hip socket and what the shin bone is up to at your ankle?

Once that’s understood, work down and offer consideration to what the 33 ‘doors’ in the foot are up to in their 3-dimensions of movement relative to the ankle, and correlate that to the knee.

Then work up, to scrutinize how the 3D pelvis is moving relative to the 3D spine … to the 3D skull … to the 3D shoulder blades … to the 3D arms … all the ‘doors’ having knock-on effects on all other ‘doors’.

The permutations aren’t endless, but they are in 7 figures.  And I can accurately measure WHAT is happening in a 6 second recording.

So is your foot/ankle/knee/hip/back/neck/shoulder/chest/elbow/wrist pain really a problem with that area? Or is it simply the end result of problems elsewhere? If normal healing time has passed and you’re still having issues, logic would suggest the latter.

This mind-blowing tech combined with my knowledge and experience will root out the source/s of your movement woes and you’ll see it – right in front of your eyes.

“Use movement to inspire change from within, rather than inflict change from the outside” Gary Ward.

My work as a movement analyst and coach involves looking at the structural dance of all your ‘doors’; sleuthing around ‘endlessly open versus endlessly closed doors’ which tell the story of why you are moving in ‘that way’, or why you became injured for no obvious reason, or keep getting injured or are in chronic pain.

In working with you, my goal is to leave no stone unturned.

We start by finding out how well each of the ‘doors’ in your spine move, relative to your pelvis, relative to your legs, relative to your feet, in all of their (mostly) 3 dimensions, whilst you’re moving – objectively.  The High Performance technology is more accurate than an X-ray – even at sprint speeds – and emits no more radiation than a light bulb, so is safe for all!

This wealth of information guides me to further movement investigations to understand the ‘why’ of your body’s story, and finally – armed with as much information as I can catalogue in each session – to the movements and manual techniques that will help to restore effective, efficient, comfortable movement by sharing the work load through more/all ‘doors’.

When you come, expect to have fun … sleuthing your joint mechanics with state of the art technology is NEVER dull!
