Welcome to the Base Camp

  • The Bodymechanix Base Camp is a wiki-like knowledgebase that provides therapists with essential information on assessment and treatment.
  • Although each of our sections could stand by itself, the real value of this knowledgebase lies in interlinking them.
  • This helps you realize how what you see, palpate and test for causes the problems your client is complaining about.
  • Learn more about our various sections below.
