Wellness Recommendation and Screening

For all individuals, whether attending on a group basis or for individual attention, an in-depth Polestar screening and wellness recommendation is advisable.

During this 1hr 15mins full postural evaluation and functional testing, we will identify strengths, weaknesses and areas for focus. This will offer you a great insight into your body and what it needs to be healthy, strong and muscularly balanced. It will highlight any misalignment, biomechanical and capsular restriction in addition to postural weaknesses. A gait assessment is also take to ascertain weight bearing and alignment of the body. This is a full body analysis, taking all lifestyle factors into consideration.

Using the 17 unique exercises from the screening test, and OOv equipment assessment, this will highlight the ability of hip disassociation, hip rotation, spinal control, spine articulation and spine stability. Shoulder and scapular stability are also tested, as well as spine extension, between cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions. Using this and the other sampling on back pain, gives you a full picture of your body, biomechanically and of any postural and gait weaknesses. Also using the Neurological Initial Examination which include Neurological Functional and gait Assessment.
