Postural and Movement
Postural Evaluations and Corrective Exercise Prescriptions
We use a postural grid and postural application to help visualize and assess postures and to monitor how it changes with treatment. When issues are detected, corrective exercises stretch and awareness via self-biofeedback and education are taught to the patient. We use a personalized video format for home exercise program prescriptions.

Selective Functional Movement Assessment
The SFMA is a movement-based diagnostic system that systematically finds the root cause of pain by logically breaking down dysfunctional movement patterns in a structured and repeatable assessment. This helps a certified provider to narrow down the diagnosis and to further differentiate between tissue and joint dysfunction, or stability and motor control deficit. Dr. Bo routinely utilizes components of these assessments.
Functional Movement Screen and Correctives
FMS is a screening tool used to evaluate seven fundamental movement patterns in individuals with no current pain or musculoskeletal injury. The FMS is not intended to diagnose orthopedic problems but rather to demonstrate opportunities for improved movement in individuals. The screening is designed to place an individual in extreme positions where movement deficits become noticeable. This leads to the use of compensatory movements to achieve or maintain the level of performance needed for the activity.
The inefficient use of compensation during movement will lead to poor biomechanics that limit gains in performance and reduce the body's ability to remain adaptable and durable against the risks of being active. We also know that prior injuries and asymmetries are related to a higher risk of injuries. Based on the screening, corrective exercises and exercise programs are prescribed, modifying safe exercise progression.
