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 started at A2 about mid-July and I am in the 9:00 am Friday class. A2 has opened me up to new levels of a workout. There is no “golden Standard”. Everyone goes to the best of their abilities. I feel like I can workout without being judged. In my class there are my mom, dad, aunt Lori, aunt Amber, my cousin Mandy and our newest addition Randy. Kristi is always encouraging us to give our all. She is never telling us that we aren’t doing the workout right. Instead she helps us grow by kindly telling us if we do it this way we will get more out of it and she always helps us get there. I decided to do cross country this year and I feel like I can go and be successful and strong because of my A2 workout. Thank you so much for helping me grow in my health."

"I had a lot of fear after surgery, afraid that I would not regain mobility and strength. I feel that A2 helped me achieve a higher plateau of health, motion, and strength than I would’ve achieved elsewhere. Also, A2 has taught me the exercises to go even further, to strengthen and mobilize my shoulder. I fully trust A2 and will recommend them to all my friends, family, and coworkers. They have all treated both me and my wife with a gentle kindness that is rare today and have made us feel welcome in their care. Very professional, but with a sense of caring; that is how I would describe A2. I will miss them all and am very grateful to have been in their hands."

"I found A2 Physical therapy was able to give me the help I needed in the exercises and cupping they gave me to loosen up my stiff joints and muscles that I could hardly move due to surgery, stiffness, and soreness. I think A2 PT are running a top notch business. The therapists that worked with and on me were extremely courteous. Molly was so helpful in my therapy and an absolute delight to work with. She got me back to 100% in just 4 weeks and my visits were 1 day a week. This was my first experience working with PT’s and it was totally a wonderful experience. Thank you A2 Physical Therapy and thank you Ms. Molly Daugherty for working with me and making my recovery and stability improve so quickly. Should I need PT again I will call you. Again many thanks."
