Dynamic Exercise Therapy

Dynamic Exercise Therapy Treatment

The Dynamic Exercise Therapy Treatment is performed by dynamic training, a mixture of postures, motions and training patterns (dynamic treatment); with verbal and physical guidance, to elicit independent control. Helping encourage the body to return to better structure and function. With a primary focus on function over structure. Working to assist motor control and restore ideal functional postures.

The person as a whole is taken into account and therefore the clinician will not only help reduce the symptoms you present with, but will also help to find out the reason they occurred (the key link), to aid you in your journey of preventing reoccurrence. This helps to bridge the gap between rehabilitation and performance training. Transitioning from injury management, into rehabilitation, and then later into full performance. While working towards a functional performance goal.

Therefore, at times, treatment may be given to very different areas of the body to the primary complaint.

Guidance for aftercare is provided, which assists by aiding to establish and prioritize training components, which can be initiated independently. As an adjunct in achieving your goals.

The system of dynamic assessment and treatment, can be applied to all conditions of ‘dis-ease’, yet can be incorporated alongside ‘traditional’ medical procedures and treatments.

Dynamic exercise therapy is based on these key theories, integrated together to aid functional performance and bodily functions, ensuring their continued healthy function.

  • Function is more important than structure.
  • Motor control is key, and functional control of motor systems is required.
  • There will normally be a ‘key link’, which is often non-symptomatic.
  • Motor control can be treated, by re-grooving healthy motor and movement patterns.
  • People can be taught to self-manage many aspects of their condition.
  • Inherent programmes of the central nervous system are present, and can be used to restore ideal functional postures.
  • Sports performance and competition longevity can be improved, by achieving ideal functional postures (you are only as strong as your ‘weakest link’).
  • The body is a whole, and functions as such, with a global kinetic pattern.
  • A ‘functional pathology’, is a ‘software problem’, and is always reversible.

I have been lucky enough to have received treatment with Michael Parr for the last 4 years (and still ongoing). I first found out about Michael whilst looking into the Perrin technique, which I had been recommended to try by a fellow sufferer. Before starting treatment with Michael, I was suffering with extreme fatigue – sleeping nearly 18 hours of a 24 hour day and still not feeling refreshed, I was also suffering from debilitating headaches, sore throats, as well as muscle, back and joint pains. Although I would have good and bad days, I could never do anything to physically exert myself or I would suffer a relapse. Months and months go by now where I don’t even think about the symptoms. I have maintained a full time job for the past two and a half years and can do everything a fit and healthy person would be able to do without having a setback. I honestly do not believe this would have been possible without Michael Parr and also the Perrin technique. He is always reliable, arriving promptly and never rushing to leave even if I may require more treatment on the occasional visit. His professionalism and knowledge never fails to amaze me. I would highly recommend Michael Parr.


Dynamic Assessment Consultation Procedure

For new patients, a full case history is taken, any prior investigations and current goals discussed, so these can be taken into consideration.

Next, if clinically appropriate, you may be asked to dress down to your underwear to allow us to look at the presenting problem. (However, feel free to wear small shorts, if it makes you feel more comfortable).

You will then be asked to perform a mixture of postures, motions and training patterns (dynamic assessment), to help us gain information and understand your posture and movement capacity, and then interpret this in regards to your presenting complaint and goals. Identifying key links in your case.

If required, additional examination, and questioning will take place. A diagnosis will then be discussed, and if appropriate at this point, treatment will begin.

After dynamic treatment intervention, you will be re-assessed to ensure efficacy, and optimize, the development of therapeutic strategies, for precision care and training.

Guidance for aftercare will be provided, which assists by aiding to establish and prioritise training components, which can be initiated independently. As an adjunct in achieving your goals.

During this process and any subsequent treatments, it is recommended that another adult individual is present at the premises, to act as a supportive chaperone, if required.

The Initial Consultation will last 45 minutes, and all follow up appointments for treatment will last 30 minutes.
