Postural Assessments are on a one-to-one basis and will take about 30 minutes.
Employees are asked to complete two movement assessments (overhead squat assessment & single leg squat assessment).
These assessments identify probable over active muscles (short & tight) and probable under active muscles (lengthened & weak). This ascertains which muscles require better flexibility (stretching) and which require better strengthening (activation).
Each assessment will provide the employee with a basic individual corrective strategy to apply immediately. This strategy, if applied regularly in conjunction with healthy living and continued physical activity, will reduce risk of injury, help improve personal fitness, reduce any knee, back, shoulder, neck pain and improve posture.
The employee also has the opportunity to discuss solutions to any obstacles to their continued personal health, fitness and wellbeing.
Employees will take away an information sheet containing the outcomes of the assessment, a plan for individual mobility exercises, corrective stretches and strengthening exercises (solutions) and a deeper understanding of the importance of mobility and movement.
