Brief (1 min)

Do they classify as obese? Do they find measurements more or less motivating for weight loss goals? How can these results translate to real life? (pant sizes changes tend to be motivating)

How does it affect daily living? How does it affect exercise and performance? What are movement options to correct it?
Comparative Hamstring test

2 min

Is there pain restricting movement? Is there pain with movement? Do hamstrings reach 90 degree hip angle with neutral pelvis? Do they have more than 45 degrees of hip angle? Indicated nerve tension) Is one side tighter than the other? Is there full knee extension? What is the significance of this pattern? How does it affect daily living? How does it affect exercise and performance? What are movement options to correct it?
Comparative Glute test

2 min

Is there pain restricting movement? Is there pain with movement? Do they reach 45 degrees of external rotation? Do they reach greater than 90 degrees of hip angle? Is one side tighter than the other? What is the significance of this pattern? How does it affect daily living? How does it affect exercise and performance? What are movement options to correct it?
Thomas Test

2 min

Is there pain restricting movement? Is there pain during movement? Does the knee drop below the level of the hip? What does this tell you? Does the knee angle sit at 90 degrees? What does this tell you? Does knee abduct outside of hip line? What does this tell you? Does leg Internally or externally rotate? What does this tell you? Is there a difference between legs? What is the significance of this pattern? How does it affect daily living? How does it affect exercise and performance? What are movement options to correct it?
Glute Med test

2 min

Is there pain restricting movement? Is there pain during movement? Can client hold leg without movement? If not, on a scale of 1-5, how strong is the hold? Is there a difference between sides? What is the significance of this pattern? How does it affect daily living? How does it affect exercise and performance? What are movement options to correct it?
Quadruped Thoracic Rotation

2 min

Is there pain restricting movement? Is there pain during movement? What is client’s active rotation? What is client’s passive rotation? Is there a difference between sides? Is there restricted internal rotation? What range would you like to see with both? What is the significance of this pattern? How does it affect daily living? How does it affect exercise and performance? What are movement options to correct it?
Discussion of basic results and how they relate to Goals.

10 min

Does weight come into play with goals? (do they want to lose weight? do they need to lose weight? Does current weight cause challenge in meeting other goals?) Does Waist circumference play into goals? (do they want to lose belly fat? do they need to lose belly fat? does current waist restrict other goals?) Does structural imbalances play into goals?
