What Is A MPR Assessment At LIFT Fitness & Physiotherapy?

The Mobility, Prehab, and Restoration Assessment (MPR) is a thorough, full-body assessment that gives you and your trainer a detailed analysis of your current strengths and stressors.


Part of getting to know you is taking the time to understand your body’s areas of tightness, muscle/tendon weakness, joint restrictions and side to side imbalances.


The body works best as a an entire unit, so we use a variety of dynamic movements to see how your body functions as a whole to evaluate stability, core control, mobility and strength.


More specific tests also gives us insight into mobility restrictions and imbalances at individual joints so we can see if there is a part of the body that may need more work than others.


OUR GOAL:


Our goal is to help you move more efficiently and reduce your risk of injury while participating in your favourite activities or even your typical day to day tasks, as well as to assist you in achieving your own goals.






Your trainer will use this information to create an individualized program of strengthening and corrective exercises to work at improving mobility and strength deficits highlighted by the MPR assessment.


We believe a MPR Assessment is for everyone. Contact us to get started.
