Functional Assessments Help Uncover the Source of the Pain

April 29, 2024

Getting rid of pain is only part of our job at the offices of Valhalla Wellness and Medical Centers. We use an integrated approach to your treatment, using functional medicine to pinpoint the true cause of your underlying problem. Our initial goal is to decrease your symptoms and make you feel better. The ultimate goal is to reduce your reliance on medication, leaving you feeling better naturally.

While alleviating symptoms is important, it’s equally important to determine the underlying cause of the pain. This is where functional assessment comes in. It is a process whereby we look for signs that point to places where joints and tissues may be overworked by poor function or improper muscle substitution.

Functional assessments are tailored to each of our patient’s goals. Included are various assessments for movement and muscle length, strength, and weakness, in addition to a postural evaluation. For athletes, we may also assess speed and agility. The results enable us to structure your individualized training program with the goal of improving your performance and maintaining your ability to move well and often, with a reduced risk of injury. Functional assessments give a fuller picture of the problem, allowing us to develop more effective treatment plans – ones that focus not just on relieving symptoms, but ones that take into account the true cause of the pain.
