3 TPM Pro Clinics identify what TPM can do for 'You, Your Clients, and Your Practice'

20th September 2018

Movement Health

Regardless of location, age or activity level, so many of the choices we all make on a daily basis, depend on the ‘health of movement’. Within TPM Pro clinics around the world, this quality is referred to as Movement Health, a concept we have explored and explained within the academic literature (Dingenen et al., 2018; McNeill & Blandford, 2015). Simply put, if your ‘movement is in good health’, so many other aspects of life are not only possible and can be maintained in the long-term but can also be enhanced or even optimised. For example, the runner or cyclist who loves their sport can gain confidence in knowing their Movement Health will not be the factor getting in the way of that next event. TPM Pro clinics assess and address issues with Movement Health in both the short and long-term. Here’s 3 TPM Pro clinics around the world showing a little bit of how they do this.  


Poynton Spine Care Institute (Republic of Ireland)

Recently featured in ‘The Irish Times’, Poynton Spin Care Institute was the first accredited TPM Pro centre in Ireland. The Irish Times article highlighted how the clinic employs TPM movement analysis alongside a full musculoskeletal and neurological analysis, so as to identify modifiable risk factors for spinal pain. Following this comprehensive assessment, a bespoke exercise and flexibility programme is put together, with prevention of recurrent back pain being the main goal.

We Manage Movement (South Africa)

Led by international conference presenter and expert clinician Jacqueline Swart, We Manage Movement are a TPM Pro clinic who appear to have a leading edge in the service they can offer. This is truly comprehensive, encompassing not on the journey from ‘Pain to Performance’ but working more preventatively in redcuing the risk of injuries and the limitation of the recurrence of injuries.

Jacqueline explains:

Adding movement to our business has grown our clinic to becoming the leaders in Movement Health and brings more clients through our doors.   We are proud of our success stories which are in no small part due to the integration of TPM Pro as part of our business.

We started a Manage Movement Centre in South Africa where our main area of expertise is treating patients with various musculoskeletal disorders as well as sports injuries, preventing injuries/recurrence of injuries and improving overall movement health.

Sports & Spinal LTD (United Kingdom)

Highly experienced clinician, Dan Smith, and his Sports & Spinal Physiotherapy clinic recently joined the ranks of TPM Pro. Based in Brentwood in Essex (UK).

Dan explains:

As the TPM Pro system can be used for a range of ages and fitness levels we are finding we are still attracting the same groups but now we offer an objective measure to gauge progress. We have run a ‘Better Back’ programme for a long time but we are now offering the Low Back Matrix as a tool to show clients of improvements. It allows us to show the effectiveness of the exercise intervention we have designed, and it also shows the client that, ‘if they do their exercise things do improve’. It supports adherence. If the report does not change it is often down to the patient’s failure to adhere to the recommendations.


The system has also allowed us to goal set more effectively with our clients, and it gives us another tool to identify to the client ‘you can’t run, yet or actually you can’. This has more weight because we can show them the report and discuss where the risk may still lie even though the symptoms are under control or have gone.’

With an eye on the future, Dan identifies, ‘We will be double the size, both in staff and space. A bigger clinic. We want to become renowned in Essex as the go to place for a different, forward thinking approach. We certainly want to be dealing with more than just symptoms, managing people’s movement from pain to performance but also those without injury or pain. We want to ensure 50% of all clients are tested with TPM and we want to attract clients to Sports & Spinal because they have heard about the system TPM system that we use. In this day and age there is such much focus on subjective outcome measures, however we now have a reliable objective outcome measurement tool, that has significant evidence to support it use.’
