Five Fundamentals of Movement

Application

NEW!!! Advanced Boot Camps

 


10 Stages of Adaptation
The 10 Stages of Adaptation provide a detailed roadmap outlining all the necessary benchmarks that a client must reach on the path to unassisted movement. Evaluating each client using the Five Fundamentals of Movement, we are able to assess an individual’s abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Based on the outcome of the Advanced Evaluation, the specialist will be able to place the client within the 10 Stages, providing a clear and defined path to work from.

The 10 Stages of Adaptation create a fluid framework for a client to work within. Although they may be classified as a specific stage, they are not defined or limited by that stage. Specialists will work to address elements of all the stages, incorporating principles of each of the Five Fundamentals into every workout. By addressing aspects of more advanced stages, the client is given a clear picture of where they are and where they are headed.

Stage 1: Passive ROM

Clients are able to withstand the load of gravity experienced while sitting in an upright position, and can demonstrate a minimal amount of passive range of motion with the assistance of a specialist.

Stage 2: Vertical Capability

Energy is developing within segments of the client’s body. The communication between the nervous system and muscles begins to produce uncontrolled contractions in the form of muscular spasms.

Stage 3: Assisted Activation

Purpose for the nervous energy developed in Stage 2 is focused. Through various means of external stimulation and initiation from Specialists, the client is able to achieve specific movements.

Stage 4: Unassisted Activation

Clients begin to initiate directional movements independent of external stimulation and initiation.

Stage 5: Activation Endurance

Muscular and Neuro endurance and strength increase. Minimal recovery is necessary between movements and replication is achieved with increased consistency.

Stage 6: Integrated Contractions

Clients begin to initiate isolated isometric contractions independent of external stimuli or the assistance of a Specialist.

Stage 7: Integrated Endurance

Endurance and strength of isolated isometric contractions continue to increase and minimal recovery is necessary between contractions.

Stage 8: Loaded Performance

Loaded articulated movements are introduced; the strength and endurance of the client’s muscular and nervous systems has increased, and overall endurance is evolving.

Stage 9: Supported Vertical

Vertical self-propulsion is introduced. With the assistance of a walking aid, the client is able to take steps.

Stage 10: Unsupported Vertical

Clients' ability to vertically load is present and functional movement is attained.
