The Whole Body MOT

The Whole Body MOT is a movement system consisting of muscles, joints, and neural components. The correct functioning of each, both statically and dynamically, is required for optimum performance and movement.

For example, did you know that if you have something wrong with your big toe, it can change the way that you stand and walk, and therefore have a knock on affect to your ankle, knee, hip, lower back and even affect your neck?

This is why the Whole Body MOT is the most important starting point of any exercise programme. Once you know more about how your body is put together you will be given exercises that suit your body, and maximise the affect of exercise on your body.


The Whole Body MOT tests:

  • Posture
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Balance
  • Movement patterns
  • Potential muscle imbalances across the whole Kinetic Chain. 

It will identify the possible causes of specific movement dysfunctions and the knock-on effect these may have on the rest of the body.

This assessment will be used to develop a Corrective Exercise programme to rectify any muscle imbalances. You will then begin to bring the body back into perfect alignment and allow it to function and perform at its’ optimum level.
