Reminders and Tips for Appointments
During your first appointment, you will have the option to complete a postural and movement assessment. For the most accurate results, we recommend the following prior to your test:
- Show up well-rested, and try to avoid strenuous activity the day of or before the assessment.
- Being overly sore, or physically exhausted may impact your postural and movement assessment.
- If taking any medications, check with your Health Care Provider to discuss possible reactions to exercise.
- Remember to eat a balanced breakfast/lunch the day of the test
- Wear comfortable clothing that will not restrict your movement
