Center for Movement Performance

About The Center for Movement Performance

Advanced physical therapy facility

The Center for Movement Performance is an advanced physical therapy facility dedicated to restoring and maximizing human function. Our philosophy is based on the premise that, to enjoy life to its fullest, one must have the ability to move efficiently and without pain. We believe movement dysfunction or pain has a biomechanical basis.

Abnormal motion or stress can have a detrimental effect on how the body functions. In order to effectively prevent movement dysfunction, reduce injury risk, or to improve performance, a complete biomechanical analysis is required to assess and identify abnormal tissue stressors.

A thorough evaluation involving range of motion, strength, movement pattern analysis, force/pressure analysis, electromyography (EMG), force plate analysis, and high speed video analysis enables us to obtain the necessary data to effectively establish a comprehensive program to restore optimal movement function.  

CMP is dedicated to providing individual care with state of the art biomechanical analysis and treatment. We are the only clinical facility in Connecticut that is dedicated to providing comprehensive evaluation and treatment with state of the art biomechanical assessment tools.
