What is Anatomy in Motion?

Anatomy in Motion is a new way of looking at pain. Created by renowned Sports Therapist Gary Ward (as featured on BBC1's Doctor in the House). AiM uses a systematic method of assessing and changing movement through walking (gait), harnessing the incredible potential in every humn body. 

 

How does this apply to my pain?

Your body's movement is controlled by the brain and nervous system. When everything works well we move with ease. Injury, trauma, repetitive movements and stress all interfere with these optimal patterns of movement, leading to compensation and further pain or injury. 

 

How can AiM help me?

I provide a holistic assessment of your whole body, both as you move and when you are still. Observing how your body works enables me to identify patterns that are creating problems. A programme of exercises can then be used to help you reconnect with your body and relearn natural movement. From improved posture to treating chronic pain, we will wok together to reach your goals.  

 

What should I expect from you as York Body Mechanic?

At our first meeting I take a detailed history and carry out a number of assessments to determine what will be most helpful. I will then give you a series of exercises to reinforce and build upon the treatment given in session. I offer full support and guidance outside of our appointments. Staying in touch lets me see how you are progresssing and helps me to understand whether any alterations should be made to your programme. 

Do you work under a governing body?

Continuing personal development is important to me, so I voluntarily registered with the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). 

 

Set up with government support, the CNHC aims to protect the public by providing a voluntary register of complimentary therapies. The CNHC quality mark guarantees an independent seal of approval to well qualified, responsible professionals in the complimentary healthcare field. The quality mark insures that the registrants meet national standards of practise in their work. Registrants must commit to maintaining ongoing personal development and hold current professional indemnity insurance to practise in the UK.
