THE PERFORMANCE LAB
Professional Movement Screen
How does improving performance with less pain and fewer injuries sound?
Here at the Performance Lab we are proud to announce that we are now accredited users of 'The Performance Matrix (TPM)'. This makes us part of an elite group of the very best physiotherapists in the country, with only 11 other accredited centres in the UK!
Phil and Matt are both fully trained Movement Specialists able to use their biomechanical skills alongside the state of the art TPM analysis software to identify your movement faults.
We use state of the art movement analysis software to identify faults in the way that you move. TPM combines current scientific evidence from medical and sport performance to give you the best management, whatever your goal is.
TPM Active is based on academic research and backed by years of practical experience. The team behind TPM are recognised as the Movement Health leaders.
TPM assess and scores the state of your movement health and designs a tailored retraining programme. It enables targets to be set in the short and long term.
Who's it for?
It's for everyone who is interested in moving well.
Just like everything we do at Performance Lab we want to invest in the very best equipment, screening tools and staff to ensure that elite Physio is available for everyone.
Whether you want to improve performance, reduce injury risk or finally get rid of the source of your pain rather than just dealing with the symptoms, then TPM is for you.
HOW DOES IT WORK
So the first step to getting this long standing back issue fixed started last night. Matt @the_performance_lab in Blackburn sports and leisure centre put me through a TPM movement screen and series of movement tests to see where the underlying issue is.
I struggle to do a lot of quite simple low threshold movements due to my stabilising muscles in my back not firing properly and the mobilising muscles are doing the work they shouldn’t be. When I do a lot of movements I over extend and over rotate which pinches my facet joints in my lumbar spine causing irritation and pain.
Matt showed me some very simple low threshold movements to do that started to turn my stabilisers on which almost instantly relieved some of the pain, which I will do as part of my warm up to training as well as other stuff to help with movement control. Matt knows I have a competition in 5 weeks and because he deals with all lot of elite athletes he understands that I need to continue training, so everything he’s given me fits around what I’m doing. So watch this space for the rehab and recovery journey!
