Preventing injury and optimising performance is beneficial to us all, whether on the sports field, at work or at home. Through a comprehensive assessment of spinal alignment, posture, muscle imbalance, biomechanics and flexibility, and then a thorough gait analysis any imbalances will be identified. The biomechanical screening will be sport specific.
A programme addressing these inefficiencies will allow you to continue your sport or activity with a decreased risk of injury while enhancing your performance. This programme will increase your understanding of the body's correct mechanics, allowing you to incorporate this into future training.
A biomechanical assessment will assess
Posture Test - how the client carries their body.
Balance Test - how well balanced the body is.
Gait analysis will be initially carried out on a treadmill for consistency and eliminates environmental factors, so please come prepared and warmed up.
Changes in your running biomechanics can dramatically improve your running economy and efficiency, reducing the amount of energy you use. This all leads to faster times and less injuries.
After analysis of your biomechanics a programme is designed to allow you to carry on training, with appropriate modifications.
Xsens 3D Analysis" allows the client to get a full 3D human Kinematic measurement.
The runner wears a lycra suit allowing the computer to use state of the art sensors to make a highly accurate kinematic biomechanical model of them. Using this data we can see exactly how the body is functioning and therefore making correction far easier to understand.
