Find Out How Well You Move
A biomechanical assessment involves a first look at your posture, alignment and quality of movement during sports specific (e.g. running, cycling, weight lifting) and functional movements (e.g. walking, bending, twisting). If you’re not moving well, or have suffered an injury, other parts of your body have to compensate and this can lead to additional load on your musculoskeletal system (muscles, nerves, joints and connective tissues). These secondary compensations can increase your risk of further damage and prolong pain and injury.
Our clinicians seek out and identify weakness, tightness and poor alignment, as well as uneven weight and force distribution when carrying out day to day and sports related movements. Any identified imbalances are addressed and corrected using various treatment techniques. This approach restores and improves function, alleviates pain and reduces injury risk in both the short and long term.
