The CHEK Principles:Founded by Paul CHEK, the CHEK Institute is driven by the vision of harnessing six foundational principles to facilitate healing within the body. These principles encompass breathing, movement, hydration, nutrition, sleep, and thinking. Through the CHEK program, a highly effective methodology has been developed to assess your body's needs and establish their priority for genuine healing. Regardless of your specific ailment, be it a back injury or challenges with sleep and nutrition, adopting the CHEK approach allows us to uncover the root cause of dysfunction, pain, or injury, and instigate lifestyle adjustments for sustainable positive transformation.
A Holistic Perspective:CHEK professionals are certified specialists in corrective exercise and high-performance kinesiology, which is the in-depth study of human movement. They adopt a comprehensive viewpoint of your body by first assessing and then addressing the underlying causes of your symptoms. This assessment leads to a tailored exercise regimen designed exclusively for you.
Postural and Orthopedic Evaluation:As a part of our comprehensive approach rooted in the CHEK Principles, we conduct a thorough Postural and Orthopedic Evaluation to gain a precise understanding of your body's unique needs.
This evaluation encompasses:
- Postural Analysis: Examining your body's alignment to identify any deviations or imbalances.
- Spinal Mobility: Assessing the flexibility and range of motion of your spine.
- Spine Strength: Evaluating the strength and stability of your spinal muscles.
- Range of Motion Testing: Measuring the extent to which your joints can move in various directions.
- Core Function Assessment: Gauging the strength and functionality of your core muscles.
- Gait & Movement Analysis: Observing your walking pattern and overall movement mechanics.
- Pelvic Assessment: Checking for any dysfunction in the Sacroiliac (SI) joint, a common source of lower back pain.
