When assessing clients and creating programs that not only deliver results but also lead to longevity, it’s important to assess and incorporate different plans of motion.
We find clients and athletes are well adapted to the working in the sagittal plan of motion (front to back). However, when it comes to moving in the other plans of motion; frontal (right to left) or transverse (up, down, rotation), we often find limitations and/or compensations. Much like someone who has a strength imbalance compensation from right to left, we also find imbalances and compensations when it comes to plans of motion.
Thus, is why as a part of our Surge Athletic/Functional Symmetry system we incorporate different plans of motion. Whether that be different movement patterns, different heights, different angles, or different rotations, we strive for symmetry.
