For rehabilitation to be effective it must treat the body as one interconnected unit with a thoughtful approach to address the objective measurements of function. In simple terms the evaluation of function must take the following components into consideration:
Coordination / Balance
Compensation / Guarding Patterns
All of these elements and more contribute to the overall picture of health in the evaluation and treatment of pain and dysfunction.
