What is anatomy in motion?
AiM is a new way of looking at the relationship between pain and the way your body moves; through assessment and analysis it identifies and treats the underlying cause of your pain, discomfort and restricted movement.
When the knee joint is stiff and cannot move properly, the foot or hip joint may have to compensate; this in turn may affect the spine, shoulders or even the opposite leg as, when movement is lost, it can cause other structures to work harder than they normally would. If every joint in the body could move throughout all the potential ranges of motion without restriction, then the chances of being in pain would be very low.
AiM founder Gary Ward created the Flow Motion model which is a 3-D map of how all the joints in the body should move and when. This map shows what happens if one particular joint is either not moving enough or moving too much and the map is used to figure out the root of dysfunction.
