Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Why test before and after warming up?

Answer: If range of motion improves as you warm up there is a good chance we can permanently improve range of motion with 1 on 1 Coaching.

If range of motion stays the same or gets worse when you warm up you need to speak with an Active Life Doctor.

Question: I feel pain during the assessment. Should I hammer through a few hundred air squats to see if it gets better?

Answer: Let me hit you with a “no”. Contact us with the red support button or click here to connect with one of our doctors.

Question: My knees hurt but I passed this test. What should I do?

Answer: Great question.

1. You should also complete the Kneeling Butt to Heel and Supine Hip Flexion Assessments. You may be limited in another area.

2. It’s possible you have a strength balance issue but we need more info to be sure. Contact us with the red support button or click here to connect with one of our doctors.
