Matt van der Lugt PERFORMANCE PHYSIO

A MOVER first, then a Physiotherapist...
If movement is the issue, then movement will also be the answer.
Invest in the way you move as your body is the only ‘tool’ you’ll own for the rest of your life and you can’t replace it.
The way you move significantly affects your recovery, healing and performance in daily activities and sports. Variables in your movement can throw those off. Injuries can take over and start to control you, instead of you controlling them. How to heal efficiently, prevent injury and get the most out of yourself comes down to details. Details matter in the assessment of your movement, your treatment, your training and your personal (p)rehab notes to control your outcomes.
The same principles that apply to an Olympic Champion in Rehab, Sports Performance and Injury Prevention apply also to a regular person. Matt has been the Sports Physio for Cirque du Soleil, USA National Speedskating Team, The House of Dancing Water, and is currently a Sport Physio for the Chinese National Speedskating Team. He has been sought after as a Physio for Olympic Gymnasts, NHL players, Professional Dancers, Red Bull Cliff Divers, Rugby Players and many more disciplines. Now he is available to everyone in Calgary at 360 BrainBody in Marda Loop.
“Become THE EXPERT of your OWN BODY”
Movement and injuries can be terribly complicated. There are so many experts. So many different opinions... So many hypes and trends... Where do you begin? And what truly matters?
The fact is, that actually nobody can be as good of an expert about your body as you. Why? Because nobody can feel what you feel better than you. You are the only one that has a direct neurological connection to your muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons and more...
Have you ever done rehab or training exercises, or postural corrections that you didn’t really understand? You couldn’t connect with them.. They were not easy to do, or it was actually difficult to remember all the details.. You would wonder: “Will this exercise actually help me recover and/or make me move better?”
Many health care providers, trainers and coaches come up with exercises and ways of movement that ask you to engage specific muscles and work at specific angles at specific moments.. Movement is actually not that complicated or theoretical..
The best movers in nature: like panthers and cheetahs, and even the very very best athletes have something in common... They move through “feeling”. A natural feeling. They don’t think and move in specific positions... Nor using ‘correct’ techniques... Or specific muscles... They are strong, athletic and agile in any position! They don’t believe in wrong ways of movement, and they don’t believe in bad posture. They make any movement work!!
A natural and athletic way of movement is achievable for anyone. Healthy movement and posture are actually not that complicated... As a baby, as a kid, you were like this. You just moved naturally... Kids don’t learn movement out of specific angles or thinking about having to engage specific muscles. They play, they explore, they FEEL... If a movement doesn’t “work” they find a way to achieve their goal through feeling and moving differently.

This “script” is created to help you get started in becoming your own expert.

One of the best movers in history said the following about movement: “Don’t think, but feel!” “It’s like a finger pointing a way to the moon..” “Don’t look at the finger” Or you will miss that heavenly glory..” BRUCE LEE
