FAQ’S

Question:

How does Brian’s approach differ from many other health professionals when dealing with Chronic pain and obesity?

Answer: 

When working with chronic pain there can be a multitude of factors contributing to the pain. Brian takes an approach of using technology where appropriate to analyse an individual’s biomechanics (movement) patterns to break the movement into frames which allows him to distinguish dysfunctional patterns.

Obesity has become a touchy topic with many individuals classified as obese due to the reading they get from a general BMI (body mass index ) equation.  This is not always an accurate measurement hence the reasons to perform other functional assessments to determine an individuals true body fat.  Brian takes an approach for weight loss which sees him utilise technology that measures an individual’s resting and active metabolic rate.  The information from this testing allows him to determine a specific plan for the individual moving forward.
