Physical activity is always more enjoyable when you are able to perform at your best
How we can help
Physical activity is always more enjoyable when you are able to perform at your best; this may be for sport, recreational activity, or otherwise. However, there are several things that may stand in your way of performing at your best. Physiotherapists are well equipped to help you improve your physical abilities to perform at your best – this begins with 2 key steps:
Test like an athlete
We know exercise is the most important component of your rehabilitation and our goal is to get you back to your gym, chosen sport or everyday life.
Whether you’re young or old, athletic or not, movement is for everyone and you’ll feel right at home in our welcoming, inclusive environment.
Evaluating Current Physical Abilites
A screening assessment at Alta involves a preliminary conversation to make note of injury history and known issues, followed by a physical assessment using our technology. We are equipped to accurately measure every major joint from head to toe, seamlessly providing a complete body assessment.
Our VALD technology is also armed with real-time video capabilities, allowing our clinicians to explain your results as you test.
Understanding what is keeping you from being at your physical best is the first step to helping you get better. We utilise VALD technologies to measure physical function so that we can help improve it.
Here are some of the technologies we use:
The DynaMo is a handheld device that can measure both strength and range of motion. We used to assess specific joints and muscles to help us better understand where to focus our treatment and exercise programs on.
ForceDecks are a “dual force plate system” – in other words, they are 2 platforms that measure force. Every movement we perform, both in sport and normal daily activities, require our bodies to produce force. The ForceDecks are great for measuring overall force, and assessing for side-to-side asymmetries.
ForceFrame is a “fixed frame dynamometer” – it is like a larger, stationary version of the DynaMo. It is capable of measuring high forces and can assess how strong different parts of the body are, in different positions. The ForceFrame is excellent at measuring isometric strength, this is when you push against an immovable object, it measures how strong you are.
NordBord is a one-of-a-kind device that is designed to measure hamstring strength. Hamstring strength is very important for runners, recreational athletes, and individuals recovering from surgery – especially and ACL reconstruction where a hamstring graft was used. The NordBord is great for assessing strength and asymmetry, and is very helpful for informing exercise selection.
HumanTrak is a motion capture system, meaning it can identify landmarks (bones and joints) in your body, and analyze your movement, providing a comprehensive report on how you perform simple and complex motions. The HumanTrak gives us an in-depth look at areas of your movement that we can improve with treatment.
