Originally designed for elite sportspeople, The Performance Matrix (TPM) is a pioneering movement management system that can overcome recurring injury, reduce pain and improve performance. Delivered by a global network of TPM Pro clinicians, these specially trained, independent practitioners include Paul Farquharson, from Spectrum Physiotherapy, whose patient – professional golfer, Danny Willett – became the second Englishman in history to win the Masters in April.

Identifying movement faults
Paul Farquharson first encountered TPM in 2014 when he enrolled on a course, run by the system’s co-founder, Sarah Mottram. The physio comments; “Introducing TPM Pro into my practice has given me the tools to undertake advanced movement assessment and identify underlying issues far more effectively. It is a system that has the capacity to transform lives – it offers practitioners like me far greater insight into the causes of pain. When a player is compensating for any deficiency, it will prevent them performing to their full potential. Initiating good movement control has huge benefits.”
Many high profile and even keen amateur golfers often experience some level of back injury, due to the stresses the sport places on the back. TPM equips physiotherapists with a movement screening analysis to identify these prevalent movement faults. Through a personalised management strategy that includes regular movement control exercises, issues can be kept at bay – so players can stay out on the golf course.
Taking control and achieving results
All active people can benefit from a TPM Active ‘ticket’ - whatever life stage they’re at. It gives access to real ‘movement choices’ - allowing everyone to take ownership of their movement health. Whether it’s helping recover from injury, improve quality of life or achieve a personal best – whatever the challenge, TPM Pro therapists have the expert skills to keep the active, active for longer.
TPM can make the world move better.
