    Injury prevention movement screen (Tips for returning to activity Part II)

    If you are planning on returning to some type of physical activity after a long period of down time, you should watch this video.

    In this blog segment, we will demonstrate 4 movement tests that you can perform on yourselves to determine if your body is physically ready for a return to activity. The injury prevention movement screen described in this video will allow you to uncover limitations within your body that could predispose you to injury upon returning to sports, gardening, leisurely walking, or any other physical activity of your choice. Revealing these limitations will give you the opportunity to seek the help of a physical therapist for treatment, so you can return to activity safely without injury.
