Running, Walking and General Movement Patterns
Every injury has a cause. Many people have a hard time tracing an injury to a single event. To truly understand the course of many injuries, one must uncover the reason for the injury. To identify the movement patterns and potential causes for dysfunction in your body, we employ visual equipment to analyze your bio-mechanics. We are able to analyze and break down the mechanics of almost any activity and any faults that may lead to injuries. Once discovered, the faults can be corrected, resulting in quicker recovery time.
Bio-mechanical evaluations start by going over your range of motion, starting at the foot and moving up the body, or kinetic chain. We also identify any muscle weakness or imbalance that may be present in your body. We then compare those values to normal ranges of motion/strength values and give you the appropriate stretches, exercises, or proprioceptive drills to improve your overall mobility, strength, balance, and/or proprioception. We address your complaint, but also look at the surrounding structures to address any compensation as well.
