Anatomy in Motion (AiM)
What is Anatomy in Motion?
Anatomy in Motion (AiM) assesses your gait, your movement patterns and how your joints move in concert with each other.
Anatomy in Motion creates a map of your body motion and helps identify why you are moving in certain ways. It is important to see movement from a global perspective as the body does not move in isolation.
AiM offers unique movement-based exercises that are tailored to your issues and help get your joints and muscles moving optimally.

Why is it helpful?
Anatomy in Motion (AiM) uses tests and exercises to figure out which parts of the body aren’t moving correctly. Then, AiM helps create a plan to help people move better and fix any imbalances, which helps people feel better and move more easily.
AiM is based on the idea that the body is a complex system of interdependent joints, and that movement problems or pain in one area of the body can be traced back to imbalances or compensations elsewhere.
“Flow” is one important idea in AiM, which says that our bodies should move smoothly and efficiently, without any disruptions. When our bodies don’t flow correctly, it can cause pain or problems with how we move. Anatomy in Motion aims to fix these problems and help people move better.
AiM also provides a personalized approach to therapy, with individualized exercise and movement plans designed to address each person’s specific needs and goals. AiM considers the whole body, not just the part that’s causing problems. By doing this, it helps people move better overall, instead of just getting rid of the pain.
At Pure Motion Centre, our practitioners use AiM to help find and treat the cause of your pain to achieve results that last. By identifying and addressing imbalances in the body’s movement patterns, it can help to improve overall function and reduce pain or discomfort.
