What is a Body MOT?
A Body MOT is a way of assessing the body to identify any weaknesses or imbalances that could lead to pain or injury. It is a preventative measure that can be taken to reduce the risk of developing these problems
Body MOTs have become increasingly popular in recent years as people have become more aware of the importance of preventative healthcare. They are especially beneficial for those who are active and participate in sports, as they can help to identify any potential problems before they cause pain or injury.
At Clywdian Sports Therapy, we offer a comprehensive body MOT service that assesses all aspects of your body. We use a variety of techniques, including muscle testing, range of motion testing and postural analysis, to identify any areas of concern. We then create a bespoke treatment plan to address these issues and help you to maintain optimal health.
