The Alignment Studio’s Jane Lau and Conor Brennan are highly skilled in biomechanical assessment, using the Functional Movement Screen and Y Balance test. The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a simple and effective musculoskeletal screening tool that is useful for athletes and active individuals alike. Originally conceived in the US for college athletes, the FMS assesses seven fundamental movement patterns.
Assessing joint mobility and stability, it identifies any weaknesses and asymmetries in the body. A total score out of 21 is given, with a score of 14 or less pointing to increased risk of injury for athletes.
Jane and Conor use the FMS, alongside the Y Balance test, to identify patients with imbalances and movement issues that put them at risk of injury. They then prescribe a corrective exercise program to restore normal movement patterns, reduce injury risk and enhance performance.

Your health and wellbeing is our priority. In light of the escalated measures to contain COVID-19, it is with a heavy but hopeful heart I have made the decision to temporarily close the studio effective 5pm Wednesday, 25 March 2020.
In the 30+ years Collins Place Physio and The Alignment Studio have been offering health support to the people of Melbourne, we have never had to close our doors. However, I feel I have a duty of care to both my staff and everyone in our community.
I will be closely following the updates from the Federal and State Governments and will communicate as soon as we are able to reopen.
During the closure, should you have any questions relating to your current treatment plan, you can contact your treating practitioner via email. All patients are also welcome to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support of The Alignment Studio. Our patients and clients make The Alignment Studio a great place to work and the whole team looks forward to welcoming you back into the studio soon.
I would like to wish you and your loved ones strength, courage and most of all good health as we go through this challenging time together.
