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 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.
