10 Stages of Adaptation

Five Fundamentals of Movement
The Five Fundamentals of Movement are the foundation of the ADAPT Advanced methodology. The Five Fundamentals – Range of Motion, Structural Capacity, Neuro Function, Muscular Function and Instinct – form the basis of every workout that clients perform.

1RANGE OF MOTION
Minimum joint capability to move through its intended articulation.

Each joint in the human body is designed to move without restrictions or limitations. The relationships between the structure’s alignment and the articulations between the segments of the body are essential to achieve movement. By addressing and restoring these restrictions created by neurological disorders and environmental compensations, a solid foundation for movement can be developed.


2
STRUCTURAL CAPACITY
The skeletal system’s ability to accept load-bearing demand.

The body must have enough structural integrity and strength to exist in an environment where it can withstand the demands and effects of gravity and bodyweight. An ideal alignment between the connective tissues and muscles must be present, and all of the structural joints must work in conjunction with one another. If this is accomplished, then the body is given the greatest advantage to accept load-bearing positions.


3
NEURO FUNCTION
Communication of the neurologic signal.

When an individual experiences a neurological disorder or injury, a disruption caused by disease or trauma takes place within the nervous system, thus limiting the communication between the brain and effector tissues. Through the repetitive application of external stimuli and positional movement patterns, the nervous system has a greater opportunity to reconnect neural pathways and communicate with the body.


4

MUSCULAR FUNCTION
Efficiency of the muscle.

Muscular function is the ability to independently contract and relax a muscle. Any deficiencies in range of motion, muscular strength or muscular endurance must be addressed in order to achieve optimal muscular function. Developing the body in a supported environment allows for the refinement of muscular strength and endurance, while limiting compensatory behaviors and movements.


5
INSTINCT
Intrinsic motivation to move.

The body is an adaptive organism that has the ability to alter itself based upon the stimulus it is provided. When the stimulus is limited due to a dysfunctional nervous system, the body’s potential for movement decreases. Through manipulation of environmental and applied stimuli, it is possible to alter the body’s inherent instinct and create new internal motivation to move.
