What is a Biomechanics Assessment

A Biomechanics Assessment examines the major muscles, nerves and individual bone structures, such as the pelvis, spine, shoulders, knees and feet, that evidence has shown cause abnormal function. Examining your Intrinsic Biomechanics, we can assess potential risk of injury and performance limiters such as muscles not working properly or working too hard.

Why you need a
Biomechanics Assessment?

Biomechanics is the analysis of movement and can be split into 2 categories:

Extrinsic – The study of movement and forces using observation. For example, looking at squat technique using a camera. Technique is then corrected based on what we believe to be the most superior anatomical form for that movement. 

Intrinsic – The assessment of internal structures that affect the body’s movement patterns. For example, looking at how someone’s leg-length discrepancy can explain poor squatting technique. The body is a master of compensation and intrinsic factors may go undetected with an extrinsic assessment.

What's the Importance of a
Biomechanics Assessment?

Statistics show that around: 

• 60% of knee and foot problems can be associated with the pelvis.

• 91% of subjects with ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injuries presented with abnormal pelvic biomechanics.

What does this all mean? Compensation! The body (in all its wisdom) is compensating for intrinsic factors. This places abnormal load on to one joint, muscle or nerve and over time this can lead to damage.
