Functional Movement Screening
The FMS is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries. It measures seven fundamental movement patters that are key to functional movement quality in individuals with no current pain or known musculoskeletal injury.
Using FMS scoring results, movement principles are then put into action to make programming decisions and guide purpose-driven exercise selection.
Screen results provide valuable feedback throughout the training process to ensure we are meeting short and long-term movement goals for life long health, vitality and independent living.
ART is a soft tissue system/movement based on massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow. These conditions typically occur as a result of overused muscles.
ART is a combination of examination and treatment. Dr. Six uses her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascis, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
Palmer Package includes adjusting procedures taught through one of the Palmer Chiropractic Colleges, including diversified, gonstead, toggle recoil and others.
Activator is a low-force technique that targets joint dysfunction in the spinal column and extremities. An adjusting instrument is used to give consistent low- force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments. It is specifically designed to deliver a controlled, light and fast thrust without strain to the patient.
