Physical Diversity develops maximum body control, flexibility and usable ranges of motion. Allowing you the ability to monitor your own body for dysfunction that may be causing pain, loss of performance, or that may be putting you at an increased chance of injury.
Physical Diversity provides manual musculoskeletal assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation based on sound scientific principles. Using the best evidence, and most effective strategies currently available to assess, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate musculoskeletal disorders, pain, and movement dysfunction.
Physical Diversity incorporates mobility training based on scientific principals and research. Mobility refers to the amount of USABLE motion that one possesses across a particular articulation (joint). The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively.
This method illuminates common movement errors that can cause musculoskeletal dysfunction and rob you of speed, power, endurance, and strength. Whether you are a professional athlete, mover, health enthusiast, or simply someone wanting to live, our method will teach you how to maintain your body and harness your genetic potential.
A simple touch and we have awareness of existence. Learn to master and understand the position of bony levers in-space. Accurate body sense is essential for feeling good in your body and being free of pain. Improving your proprioception is an excellent goal for anyone who wants to improve sports performance or reduce pain.
Proper body alignment helps with body mechanics. That means it helps your body moves in a way that’s smart, efficient and with less risk of injury. In other words, body alignment will keep your body moving, sitting, standing, working, exercising, and being active for a long time. Proper body alignment helps the major systems in your body work better: digestive system, respiratory system, nervous system,immune system and more. In other words, everything runs better when the body is aligned.
On the surface, the stunning variety of human movement can appear quite complex. In fact, unraveling all of this miraculous function is more straight-forward than one might think. Movement & Mobility within the Physical Diversity Method is designed to facilitate seeing past the complexity and variability, to the common root language of fundamental shapes, positioning, and tissue organization that unify all human movement.
Human physiology hasn’t evolved much over the last ten thousand years. The shoulder is still the same. The knee functions in the same way. The movement, fighting, and sport’s traditions of modern humans are clear examples of how human beings have been leveraging motor control and technique to be able to express peak human physiology for thousands of years.
When we combine these practically derived movement models with the modern formal language of strength and conditioning, along with our best understanding of human physiology, we are left a clear pathway towards improved human physical function. Yet most athletes and coaches don’t have a cogent, systems-based approach to evaluate human function that integrates movement theory and mechanics, or reconciles performance with resiliency.
Participate in the exchange of information between various types of movers. Information in specific isolated practices can be extremely useful for other types of movers. The intention is to provide tools and support the development of Movers and specialists – practitioners of both isolated movement practices as well as wider spectrum ones.
