When you first came to see Jo Abbott, you were having painful symptoms in your body. During your appointment Jo conducted a series of manual assessments on you – the data from which formed a small part of her ongoing musculoskeletal science research, of which is near completion.
To gather further understanding of your musculoskeletal health since that last appointment with Jo will provide further data, supporting the creation of an algorithm that boosts understanding and expertise, leading to a proactive approach to this global issue whilst providing data that drives successful treatments, rehabilitation programmes, and injury prevention.
The research process is about identifying musculoskeletal disorder (MSD-1) signatures within individuals. Think of each individual as having a unique ’MSD signature’ which work like an aircraft’s ‘Black Box.’ In an aviation disaster, the Black Box tells us what went awry. The MSD signature works in a similar way – it’s how the human body tells us what’s gone wrong to lead to an MSD, and what may continue to deteriorate so the original MSD evolves into Musculoskeletal Disease (MSD-2).
