What is Functional Testing?

Functional Testing | Elevate Chiropractic | Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic | SW Calgary

Functional testing measures a patient’s quality of movement, as well as their ability to engage muscles efficiently. It involves locating key areas of movement deficiency and their impact on the patient’s symptoms. The results of functional testing help to determine exactly how your unique body is functioning – how it is handling inflammation, and how it is processing nutrients. If we know your body better, we can support your body’s healing processes more effectively and better help you reach your wellness goals. Functional testing also allows us to get to the root cause of poor health, by taking a much deeper look than traditional lab lasting would, allowing us to find the missing puzzle pieces for your health so you can get back on track.
