Why use HNMS?
Many movement strategies have no recognised origins and/or offer technique-based solutions.
Human movement is a complex integration of physiological, anatomical, developmental, psychological, cultural and biomechanics factors. Having defined origins allows a system/method to offer validity to the information it is disseminating.
Highland Neuromuscular Movement Services uses a named, principle-based methodology of Human Movement - the Neuromuscular Approach to Human Movement®. The Approach® is person-centred, has origins and definition and was derived from a holistic study of human movement and its consequences.
Many movement strategies are currently only based on mechanics, and offer technique-based training. Mechanics alone will never offer or promote a safer system of work and/or a personal reduction in musculoskeletal injury. Also, from the research of Dr. Sue Hignett, M.Erg.S M.C.S.P. Eur.Erg, technique-based training has been shown not to reduce the incidence of musculoskeletal injury.
HNMS courses take into account the abilities of each individual, their previous/current health status and the potential risks attributed to that individual due to their health and well-being.
