Many of the assessments used at Podia-Clinic are known as functional, that is, they involve a person undertaking a simple movement, for example, going up onto their toes. Any exercise suggested is simple to do and chosen because it helps reveal where a weakness or injury might be. Once the weakness is identified the test movement becomes a part of a treatment as a functional exercise.

Why? Quite often it is the repeated exercise that reinforces the gains made by using the other treatments in a session.

Any exercises encouraged are simple, relevant to what is being rehabilitated/treated and allow a person to feel the benefits that come from it.
