The functional manual therapists at CIMT recently hosted members of the Howard County Recreational Softball League for a movement evaluation workshop. Each attendee's ability to walk/run (gait pattern) and to bend over to pick up a ball (hip hinging pattern) was evaluated. They were then given individually prescribed exercises designed to improve movement efficiency and reduce injury risk for the coming season.
We then demonstrated and discussed how Functional Manual Therapy can alleviate pain and present injuries that players commonly experience during the season. We want to thank everyone who attended! Our CIMT Team will be presenting similar workshops in the future on different sports and activities. Please stay tuned!
