Return From Injury

WHEN CAN I BE ACTIVE AGAIN!?!

The answer to this question of return to activity is critical because a previous injury is the number one cause of any injury whether it is a concussion, sprain, or pulled muscle. Return to activity refers to the point during the injury recovery process when a person is able to go back to moving, working, or playing at a pre-injury level. Using our qualifying processes, UpRight Movement is able to base return to activity on simple, repeatable, objective measures as well as three levels of clearance; Pain, Quality and Quantity.

 

Feel Move Perform

I was in need of having a total knee replacement in one knee. For six months or so, UpRight Movement helped me get into a condition that would be more conducive to successful physical therapy and recovery after surgery. Apparently, UpRight Movement did everything right because I recovered quite a bit quicker and more fully (regained more motion in the knee) than is typical following this surgery. I highly recommend UpRight Movement to anybody looking for training to help them improve their life and their lifestyle. UpRight Movement has improved my gait and my balance. I am in better shape. My posture is improved; I’m actually a half-inch taller now than when I first started. I look better and feel better.

Movement Signature Room: Feel Better Move Better Perform Better

Mission: UpRight Movement helps change lives for the better through education focused on health, pain-free movement, and performance.   THE FOUNDATION FOR EVERYTHING WE DO IS AN UNSWERVING COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE. UpRight Movement is a Force Multiplier applying technology and data to the pursuit of human resilience. The MICROGATE Platform is used by Professional, Military, and Olympic Teams world-wide to qualify and quantify performance potential, identify and reduce injury risk, and improve performance efficiency.   UpRight Movement utilizes the OptoGait technology to objectively evaluate people of all ages and abilities in order to identify their Movement Signature. The OptoGait system is used by all US Olympic Training Centers, the US Military at West Point, and Professional Sports Teams throughout the USA & Europe to efficiently and effectively evaluate human performance.  OptoGait can quickly and accurately evaluate gait (the rhythmical execution of your body’s joints, ligaments, and muscles as you walk), run, jump, balance. It can  also measure reaction times, assist in fall prevention, and test the efficacy of your orthotics/braces, and much more. Situated within our Movement Signature Room, the OptoGait System can be used on the floor or attached to our treadmill to evaluate people in different environments and moving at different speeds. We can also utilize the system as an exercise tool, as it gives you bio-feedback in the form of real-time video. This allows you to correct your motions, improving both symmetry and efficiency in all types of movement while walking, running, jumping, or shifting side-to-side. UpRight Movement looks forward to helping you feel move perform better.   Click Here For: Gait Testing, March In Place, Drift Protocol   Human Performance Evaluation   Dr. Peter Gorman, President of Microgate USA, explains...
Build your Grit like the SEALs

Build your Grit like the SEALs

“Grit is sticking with your future day in, day out and not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years.” Angela Duckworth   grit ɡrit/ noun   1.  courage and resolve; strength of character.   What we can learn from, the SEALs and the research on how to have grit:   1. Purpose and meaning. It’s easier to be persistent when what we’re doing is tied to something personally meaningful. 2. Make it a game. It’s the best way to stay in a competitive mindset without stressing yourself out. 3. Be confident — but realistic. See the challenges honestly but believe in your own ability to take them on. 4. Prepare, prepare, prepare. Grit comes a lot easier when you’ve done the work to make sure you’re ready. 5. Focus on improvement. Every SEAL mission ends with a debrief focusing on what went wrong so they can improve. 6. Give help and get help. Support from others helps keep you going, and giving others support does the same. 7. Celebrate small wins. You can’t wait to catch the big fish. Take joy where you can find it when good times are scarce. 8. Find a way to laugh. Rangers, SEALs, and scientists agree: a chuckle can help you cope with stress and keep you going.   SEAL Mental Performance Angela Duckworth on Grit We view fitness, like life, as a big picture, long term process… So in order to upgrade how you feel, move and perform it is essential to upgrade your practice.

Personal Success Meter: For Your Health, Fitness, and Life

“Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.” Dale Carnegie   Generally, fitness is assessed in four key areas: aerobic fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition. UpRight Movement takes fitness Further. The UpRight Movement program goals are to optimize human locomotion, health, and fitness (utilizing sound fundamental, transitional, and functional movement patterns balanced with recovery). This helps restore True fitness: the ability to consistently thrive and function within the demands of your environment.   “The best doctors in the world are Doctor Diet, Doctor Quiet, and Doctor Merryman.” Jonathan Swift   We view fitness, like life, as a big picture, long term process… So we created a checklist to help us all measure our daily progress toward success. We understand how it feels to be busy, and know that sometimes you don’t have more than a minute or two in your day to check in with your wellness and fitness goals. The Pillars of long lasting change are: Mindset, Recovery, Nutrition/Hydration, and Movement.

The Pre-Flight Checklist: Monitoring Readiness

The Pre-Flight Checklist: Monitoring Readiness

“Omne Trium Perfectum” (everything that comes in threes is perfect) Latin phrase   Minimize Injuries, Maximize Performance Intelligent solutions seeking out marginal gains: Those one percent differentiators that will take you from good to great.   The primary limiters of human physical movement and performance is our biological state and how well we interact with the ground and gravity. Our ability to function and perform is limited by how well we can recover from a multitude of seen and unseen stressors, in addition to managing ground reaction forces that move up the body and cause injury problems. At Upright movement, we have previously addressed these limits with our Regeneration Guidelines, Daily Regeneration Monitor, Standards, Movement Signature, and now our Daily Readiness Index. We feel that UpRight Movement has a responsibility to you and thus we are constantly evolving to be better, so that you’re better, and able to pass that “better” along to others in your life. We think of the Daily Readiness Index as a “Pre-Flight Checklist” that can help you achieve the results you want.

One Arrow, One Life: Intention and Goals

One Arrow, One Life: Intention and Goals

“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that its going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.” Unknown   An aspect of mindfulness is to set your intention. When you’re a fast-acting multitasker, your mind can become invaded by the thoughts and responsibilities you’re trying to keep track of. While these goals are important to keep organized, you can deal with the onslaught of to-dos by zoning in on a point of focus. Do this by setting your intention each morning and staying mindful of what matters most that day. For more: see setting your intention. UpRight Movement helps to support the positive practice of  Your “INTENTION”, with its newest Intention handout. Improve your Mindset and make progress toward your goals by leveraging UpRight Movement Principles.

Using an infared LED field, and accelerometer, gyroscopic, and magenetometer sensors, we are able to gather objective, science-based data on your movement patterns, force generation, and kinesiologic performance. All theses variables create a unique Movement Signature. Our performance specialists can use this data on your own personal signature to provide clear, objective, measurable-data-based insight into individuals’ performance potential, allowing a more direct path toward developing their resilience, and in the event of misfortune, providing objective benchmarks during the...
