Movement Analysis

The FROM Test, which consists of 60 different tests, forms the base of the movement analysis.

We focus on the following movement patterns:

The Anterior Line – bending the body forward

The Posterior Line – bending the body backwards

The Lateral Line – bending the body to the side

The Medial Line – keeping the legs together and the core of the body

The Upper Spiral Lines – responsible for all rotations of the upper body and pelvis

The Weight-bearing Lower Spiral Lines – responsible for all rotations of the pelvis and legs in the weight-bearing position

The Non-weight-bearing Lower Spiral Lines – responsible for all rotations of the pelvis and legs in a non-weight-bearing position

The Arm Spiral Lines – responsible for all the arm movements (link up with the Upper Spiral Lines)

Discrepancies on The FROM Test gives information on compensation patterns, the cause of imbalance and muscle dysfunction.

The results of The FROM Test provides the information needed to determine if the body is locked in dysfunctional compensation patterns. The practitioner will work out a strategy to eliminate layers of compensation patterns until the body is aligned and balanced.

The Bunkie Test give a clear indication of function of the linear lines and is used to determine if the body is responding to the fascia releases.

By adding together all the results of the FROM Test, the Bunkie test, the Lyno practitioner is able to work out exactly in which compensation patterns the client moves. These patterns could include a combination of linear & spiral movements of the whole body.

Clients often arrive at a session claiming that their Hamstrings and calf muscles are tight and their Gluteii are not firing. When applying the full test it might show up that the Hamstrings are locked in a long position, that the abdominal wall is locked short on one side, causing non-firing of the Gluteus muscle and that a locked habitual spiral pattern is responsible for the dysfunction. By combining the information given by the client, with the information gathered by the tests, the practitioner is able to form a holistic view of the client’s movement and work out a plan to restore neutral and balanced movement.

The aim of The Lyno® Method is not only to create an awareness of body movements and habitual patterns, but also to guide the client towards neutral movement and more efficient movement patterns.
