Movement Screening & Assessment


At A2 we believe that moving well is the key to achieving high levels of sustainable performance, not just sport or athletic performance, but performance of any and all daily life activities as well.

What truly sets A2 apart from the rest is our ability to screen and assess movement capacities prior to starting any training or rehab programs, and our ability to monitor and refine motor skills throughout the duration of these programs. This not only helps to decrease the risk of injury, but also ensures the optimization of movement while enhancing performance output so you can successfully reach your goals.

Whether you’re training for a 5k, Spartan race, or athletic event, or just want to move better and perform your daily activities with greater efficiency, our certified staff will use the Functional Movement Screen to define your baseline movement competencies, identify movement pattern dysfunctions, and design a training program to correct underlying problems, develop skills and ensure your body is functioning optimally.

And if you’re in pain, our certified staff will use the Selective Functional Movement Assessment to identify the source/cause of your pain and develop an individualized plan of care to get you out of pain and stay that way.

At A2, our primary goal is helping you move better, feel better, and keep you performing at your best, whether at home, at work, on the field, or wherever life takes you, for the long haul!

  

"I came in to A2 with a knee injury that left me with very limited mobility and muscle weakness. Danny and team did an excellent job of diagnosing exactly what my issues were and designing a treatment plan that allowed me to regain strength, balance, and confidence. I would recommend A2 without reservation as a skilled and professional team."

"Last Sunday I played full court basketball for the first time in 15 years. I will qualify the contest by saying it happened on a court just out of the back door of an elder care center. The teams consisted of a 7 year old, an d8 year old, a young woman in flip-flops (I played in sandals), a woman who proudly stated she was 55 years old (I retorted with my age of 65), and a couple of other young guys that really played well. I ran the court, I played defense, blocked shots, made shots (missed a lot), got lots of rebounds, and talked a lot of smack while playing with a group of people a lot younger than me. I even made a behind the back-twisting fall-away shot, then fell and tumbled on the court. I jumped up and continued to play, and we played for about 45 minutes.
I attribute my ability to play this game that I love so much again to the excellent training receive from Kristy who is a trainer at A2 Physical Therapy. I have worked out and trained since I was very young. I played high school basketball, baseball, and I ran track. I spent 20 years in the Army with all the training requirements associated with that occupation. I played on community and city leagues, and I have trained with weights for many years. The training program Kristy has devised for me at A2 is rigorous, thorough, diverse, fun, challenging, and focused. She prepares workout plans that are age and fitness level appropriate. My work out now is so much different then it was when I first started. She both trains me individually and as a couple. I run, jump, stretch, lift, balance, squat, push, pull, and every other movement you can imagine. I look forward to going to my workout every time. Kristy is completely in charge of every workout. I am retired, and my training at A2 allows me to fill the need to accomplish something positive every day I work out. I am doing physical activity with ease that I would not have thought I would be able be able to accomplish at the age of 65 such as hiking on Mt Rainer and running 4 days per week. Kristy and A2 have really changed my life…"

"Danny was fantastic; he was able to quickly diagnose my issues and construct a plan for recovery that began showing results in a couple weeks. 10/10 would recommend to everyone."
