What Is a Movement Specialist?

A movement specialist is a highly trained professional who specializes in assessing movement and creating customized exercise programs for individuals of all levels. They interact with clients in a friendly and welcoming manner and have a strong background in anatomy, physiology, exercise science, and kinesiology. At DMR Move, our movement specialists treat individuals who are looking to improve their physical performance, reduce pain, and enhance their overall quality of life.

What Does a Pain Specialist Do?

A pain specialist is an expert in understanding the underlying mechanisms that contribute to an individual’s pain experience and creating customized pain management plans. They are highly trained and experienced in treating individuals who are suffering from all pain conditions, including complex cases that involve multiple conditions and comorbidities. 


At DMR Move, all our clinicians are trained as movement and pain specialists and work closely together to create comprehensive treatment plans for our clients. No matter whether your goals are to improve function, manage pain, or enhance performance, we are here for you.

DMR Move’s Approach to Movement & Wellness

DMR Move has been offering movement and wellness services for many years. Our approach is rooted in a deep understanding of human movement and behavior, and our goal is to help our clients achieve their health and fitness goals in a way that is safe, effective, and enjoyable. 


What sets us apart from other clinics is our unique process-based approach that is grounded in the Human Rehabilitation Framework (HRF). This framework is the result of extensive collaboration between experts in pain science, rehabilitation, behavioral science, and psychological flexibility training, and is designed to help our clients learn practical skills that lead to real and lasting changes. Through the HRF, we help our clients understand their own unique biopsychosocial profile, and create customized plans that are tailored to their needs, goals, and preferences.

Using the Human Rehabilitation Framework in to Enhance Fitness and Promote Better Wellbeing

The Human Rehabilitation Framework (HRF) is a groundbreaking approach that revolutionizes the way we think about movement and wellbeing. At DMR Move, we believe that the HRF can be applied not just to rehabilitation but also to fitness to promote better overall health. 


Our movement and pain specialists work with clients to develop customized plans based on their unique biopsychosocial profile, incorporating practical skills and strategies to improve movement, enhance performance, and increase overall wellbeing. By utilizing the HRF, our clients see immediate and long-term improvements, even after finding little success with other training programs.

Creating a Biopsychosocial Profile

By using the HRF, our movement and pain specialists will create a biopsychosocial profile that considers all the biological, psychological, and sociological factors that are relevant to an individual’s experience. This typically includes information about a client’s health history, body behavior, values, and goals. We use this information to create a customized plan for improving movement and wellness built around each client’s unique needs.

Insight Sessions

The best way to learn more is to schedule an insight session. Insight sessions involve one of our movement and pain specialists spending time learning about your history, evaluating how your body is built and moves, and taking an inventory of your values and goals. From there, they work with you to build a customized plan for enhancing your movement and promoting better wellness built around your unique needs. 


Based on your insight session, our movement and pain specialists can either build a package of movement and wellness sessions, and/or provide hands-on neural calming and body awareness sessions.

Movement and Wellness Sessions

Our movement and wellness sessions are defined based on the information gathered during your insight session. Sessions may range from strength and conditioning fitness training to mindful movement to help you stay committed towards your values and goals.

Hands-On Sessions

Our approach to hands-on techniques (commonly known as manual therapy) is that the client determines what hands-on approach is best for them. We may use techniques you are familiar with, such as mobilization, manipulation, and soft tissue work (such as massage or myofascial release), but we want to give you an updated understanding of the underlying reasons they may be helpful to you based in modern science. 


The key message is none of these are required for your health or recovery, but they may be helpful, and YOU are in charge, not us. You are not broken and do not need to be fixed or aligned, but some hands-on contact may feel good and may help you to learn more about your own body to help you move better. Currently, we provide two different styles of hands-on sessions: simple contact and body awareness.


Simple Contact

These sessions are based on discussion with you regarding what type of hands-on contact feels good to you. Some people prefer firm contact, some light contact; some prefer hands on that are more felt in the joints. We can provide suggestions, but you decide—you are in control.


Body Awareness

These sessions are hands-on education sessions to learn more about the resting tension and region-by-region behavior of your body. These may include mobilization or manipulation techniques if you find these helpful. Often there are more verbal discussions in these sessions than simple contact because the emphasis on the session is learning about your body to help you to better understand it and your own movement.

Wellness Exercises

Besides regular strength and conditioning activities, our movement and pain specialists also utilize our state-of-the-art facility, which consists of the AUX, to help our clients reach new heights. 


By using the AUX, we can provide full to partial body weight relief, allowing our clients to perform activities safely and comfortably that they may not have been able to do before. Additionally, as our clients progress, we can transition from weight relief to resisted activities, challenging our clients through a range of dynamic movements that no other system can provide. This makes it possible to perform a wide variety of exercises and movements that are specific to the sport or activity that a client is preparing for. 


With the help of our skilled movement and pain specialists, clients can use the AUX system and our personalized approach to accomplish their goals faster and more efficiently, while minimizing the risk of injury and maximizing their overall wellness.
