How do you know if your rehab has worked?
Here at Articulate we are incredibly fortunate to have the AXIT system. This clinical instrument suite allowed us to assess my shoulder for both shoulder power and strength (strength being the maximal amount of force I can generate whilst power refers to how quickly I can generate force). The flexibility of the system allows testing in a multitude of directions and positions. We were able to identify a few areas on which I was still lacking and using the data put together a tailored plan to specifically target my deficiencies.
I am happy to report that my shoulder has made a complete recovery. I’m back to doing everything I wanted to be able to do. The decision to have surgery whilst being a significant inconvenience was well worth doing. In saying that surgery should always be the last resort and exhausting conservative management should always be the first option. The benefits of the AXIT system is that we can identify if there is some strength component to work on in improving an issue or alternatively it can confirm that the strength for a particular body part is adequate and that there are other aspects that need addressing for rehabilitation.
Whilst the AXIT system is wonderful and gives us a lot of information it is only a tool. The art in rehabilitation is the interpretation of the data, understanding the experience of the client and applying the correct management program.
If you have any questions about testing or rehabilitation don’t hesitate to reach out to us in clinic.
