To make an exact evaluation we should use the ICF Model (International Classification of Function and Activity and Participation, WHO 2001).

— Body functions are the physiological functions of body systems (including psychological functions).

— Body structures are anatomical parts of the body such as organs, limbs, and their components.

— Impairments are problems in body function or structure such as a significant deviation or loss.

— Activity is the execution of a task or action by an individual.

— Participation is involvement in a life situation.

— Activity limitations are difficulties an individual may have in executing activities.

— Participation restrictions are problems an individual may experience in their involvement in life situations.

— Environmental factors make up the physical, social, and attitudinal environment in which people live and conduct their lives

Planning treatment is a systematic process to develop the most appropriate treatment for each patient (Sullivan et al. 1982). Our treatment seeks to help each patient gain the highest level of function possible.

Fire Up Your Core

Fire Up Your Core

If you weaken the center of any freestanding structure it becomes unstable. Eventually, everyday wear-and-tear takes its toll, causing the structure to buckle under pressure. This is exactly what happens when the core muscles are weak – it compromises your body’s ability to support the frame properly. In recent years, there has been a lot of buzz about the importance of a strong core – and there is a valid reason for this. The core is where all of the powerful movements in the body originate – so it can essentially be thought of as your “center of power.”
