Scoliosis or Spinal Deformity

Scoliosis affects around 11% of the population can lead to a life time of spinal pain and dysfunction.  Early identification and intervention is key in order to mitigate (and potentially correct) the spinal deformity.  Using the DIERS Formetric 4D technology, in collaboration with physicians, researchers and engineers from around the world has revolutionized non-radiology 3D imaging of the spine both dynamically and statically.  Dr. Lawrence Lenke MD is one of the leading scoliosis and spinal deformity physicians in the world, and has partnered with DIERS to create a comprehensive scoliosis scoring criteria to help accurately identify spinal deformity, and map change over time.

Low Back Pain

Often times chronic spinal pain boils down to identifying what’s not moving enough, and getting it moving; what’s moving too much, and stabilizing it with corrective exercises and then ensuring the entire spine is functioning on top of a stable pelvis.  The Motion Lab will help identify, down to a few degrees of accuracy, the position of each vertebral segment, what is moving too much, what is moving too little and the static and dynamic stability of the pelvis.

If you’re experiencing low back pain and currently are not being treated for it, this might be a good place to start.  If you’re currently working with a local medical professional for your back pain, this motion analysis might help fine tune the approach you and your clinician are taking in correcting your spinal mechanics.


Joint Injury

Whether you’re recovering from a joint injury, surgery or possibly a total joint replacement, measuring how well that joint, and surrounding muscles, are functioning in synergy with the rest of your body during walking and running can provide valuable insights in to what still needs to be addressed to reach full recovery.  Comprehensive motion analysis of your 3D movement mechanics, muscle activity, plantar foot pressure and 3D spinal modeling can help fine tune your rehab by identifying the areas still in need of attention.

If you’re rehabilitating on your own, or already working with a clinician to guide your rehab, this could be a valuable insight to help better guide your recovery.


Foot Pain

Research tells us that 1 in 5 people will experience foot pain every year.  Identifying the cause of the foot pain early will help identify the most appropriate treatment strategy to fix your pain.  Real time pressure mapping of your feet during standing, walking and running, in combination with 3D motion analysis of the rest of your body, will provide deep insights in to the cause, and most effective solution for your injury.

Whether you’ve not yet reached out for medical help for your foot pain, or are currently working with a podiatrist or clinician, this could provide valuable insights to help better direct your treatment strategy.


Prosthetics

Having an appropriate fit is imperative to the success of your prosthetic.  Further, having appropriate strength and flexibility throughout the rest of your body is imperative to your ability to best synchronize with your prosthetic.  A comprehensive motion analysis, looking at how well your prosthetic is interfacing with your body, can give great insights in to what might be worth considering for tweaking your fit or from a corrective exercise standpoint.

If you feel like a comprehensive motion analysis sounds right for you, check with your prosthetist to see if they also feel this would have value.  Click here to learn how to schedule.


Return to Sport

When considering a full return to sport after an injury, it’s important to be sure that your body is functioning optimally, without asymmetry or measurable deficits in strength, force generation, joint function, muscle activity and overall movement mechanics.  If you feel you’re ready to return to sport after an injury, but want to make certain that your body is durable and ready, then a full-motion analysis can give valuable insights in to your readiness for full return to your sport.
