How will I use Biomechanics to help you?
A full body biomechanical screening will establish your areas of mechanical strength and weakness and will spot any underlying posture problems that could be preventing you reaching your full fitness potential.
A fully trained coach can screen the shoulders, spine, pelvis, knees, ankles, nerves and muscles to see if they are functioning correctly; if these are not working to capacity, then a Biomechanics Coach will be able to determine whether that is due to genetic issues or something that is developing due to poor technique, posture problems, inadequate rehabilitation or ergonomic set-up. The coach will then give a series of corrective exercises.
Intrinsic Biomechanics process explained
Biomechanics begins with a full body intrinsic biomechanical assessment which will identify any biomechanical dysfuntions and will enable a logical corrective programme to be prescribed to help correct any biomechanical problems and help optimize movement patterns enabling clients to function more efficiently.
This programme is delivered by first assessing the client’s needs. If the individuals biomechanics are not correct their movement patterns, posture and efficiency of movement will be compromised.
The progressions of a biomechanical model are as follows:
Phase 1: NORMALIZE
To ensure pelvis and spinal mechanics are normalized by correcting any biomechanical dysfunctions, muscle imbalances, nerve mobility problems and reducing any subclinical muscle spasms.
Phase 2: STABILIZATION PHASE
Focuses on improving the core stability of the individual
Phase 3: FUNCTIONALIZE
Prepares the body for movement focusing on feet, knees and shoulders. Makes sure you are fit to perform in your daily lifestyle activities and you are able to achieve your fitness goals. Maximises your performance potential.
Once an individual has successfully moved through each phase along the ‘health continuum’, he or she will have the capacity to deliver efficient movement with less pain and risk of injury.
