Movement Screens

Humans are prone to injury. Limited mobility, lack of movement, compensation patterns, lack of stability, you name it. Movement screens are a great way to analyze how your body is moving and what areas might need some attention to continue to prevent injury. During the movement screens, Dr. Porter or Dr. Bates will check for scoliosis, weakness in certain muscles, limited range of motion, and more! They will also analyze everyday movement patterns such as squatting, gait analysis, going up stairs, how you sit, how you stand, and more!

Why Movement Screens are Useful:

Do you go to the dentist every 6 months for a checkup, even if you aren't experiencing tooth pain? Going to the dentist for a cleaning is a preventative measure to ensure the health of your teeth, gums, tongue, and more. Then why do people not take preventative measure when it comes to their musculoskeletal system? Our team at Tennessee Back Pain Center thinks it is important to analyze how you are moving in order to prevent pain, prevent injury, and enhance your daily movement. 

Healthcare is currently called healthcare, but it should be called sick care because you don't go unless you are sick. The definition of healthcare should be, "what you do on a daily basis to take care of yourself." So our goal is to teach and promote self-care so you can care for your own health.

Through a movement screen, we analyze how you are moving through range of motion assessments, checking for full range of motion, asymmetries from side to side, and easy of movement. We will have you go through certain motions like deep squat or single leg stance to ensure that activities that occur each day are not troublesome. We will check for curvature of your spine, especially in the growing population to help identify and treat early on conditions like scoliosis. We will analyze the integrity of your nervous system to make sure the communication between your brain, your motor system, and your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints is well maintained. Finally, we will give you tips and tricks to help enhance your movement and stability so you can continue to do the things you love. Take the preventative measures today to avoid pain and stay in the game.
