Sport Specific Technique Analysis

Therapists at PhysioMotion  are experts at understanding the biomechanics of movement required in sports and the analysis of these motions in relation to injury or performance. We are not sports coaches, but we are pros at identifying the specific issues with your musculoskeletal system and how it relates to sporting performance.

At PhysioMotion, our Sport Specific Technique Analysis offers:

 

  • Technique analysis & your movement profile with running, tennis, swimming, golf, hockey, throwing sports, yoga, dance and fencing amongst others.
  • A detailed whole body assessment through movement to identify areas of inefficient biomechanics, diagnose any injuries and relate that to your chosen sport
  • A sport specific analysis will looking at your strength, control and any asymmetrical loading associated with compensatory movement strategies throughout your body
  • A personalised progressive treatment approach used will expedite recovery and return to sport by addressing the specific dysfunction in your body

  • Treatment including your exercise program will be targeted at the cause of your issues and not necessarily the pain generator (where symptoms appear)

     

  • Early intervention is paramount to prevent any further injury and unwanted compensatory mechanisms in other regions of the body

     

  • Other contributory factors will be discussed such as your exercise program, training regimes, sleep, general health and nutrition.

     

  • A detailed explanation of your specific issues will be given to support behavioural changes to optimize healing and recovery
  • Referral to other health professionals to achieve optimal health will also be considered.

Our highly trained clinical skills allows us to break down any human motion into intervals so as to be able to ascertain which regions of your musculoskeletal system are non-optimal and therefore, restricting performance. Often, this is what is causing your injuries ranging from joint pain, chronic overuse injuries to acute muscle strains. 

 

 

Once your movement profile has been identified, we will use our unique Physiotherapy skills to address areas of stiffness, weakness and asymmetries to achieve a pain free athletic strategy that will take your achievements to the next level. We welcome working closely with your sports coaches and personal trainers.

 

 

At PhysioMotion,, we create the space for you to feel the difference when your body is pain free, moves well and performs optimally.

 

However, shoulder problems also arise frequently in a sedentary population due to poor postures. In all of these cases, the most common injury is known as ‘shoulder impingement’ associated with a ‘rotator cuff tendonitis’.

Running Assessments

At PhysioMotion, we believe that everyone would benefit from a running assessment. Here are the reasons why:

 

  • Identification of poor running techniques
  • Improved running performance
  • Injury prevention & treatment protocol
  • Objective measurements of muscular imbalances
  • An extensive core stability & fitness program

Common injuries caused by inefficient biomechanics and non-optimal movement strategies are:

 

Optimal Running Technique & Biomechanics:

 

 

Jogging is one of the most enjoyable and great ways to keep fit, but it is a repetitive sport that can place undue stress on joints from the feet to the spine particularly when running biomechanics are non-optimal. Up to 65% of joggers carry a running related injury that is often related to poor biomechanics (body alignment). Whether you run recreationally or competitively, it is important that you are injury free.

 

 

Our running assessments analyse your running technique and identify specific inefficiencies that either cause injury or poor performance. We use a holistic approach looking at the entire musculoskeletal system, training program, footwear and nutrition.

All factors in all regions of the body causing inefficiency or injury with running are considered with the root causes prioritised to gain maximal performance outcomes. Such expert knowledge and analysis ensures excellent running technique, optimal performance and injury prevention.

 

We use the most advanced and real time ultrasonography (RTUI) and more so, expertise in analysis to provide objective data on how your body moves. Our team then evaluates this information to identify any biomechanical problems and muscle imbalances.

 

Addressing your running issues will incorporate manual therapy, a review of your training regime and a personalized target specific strength and conditioning program to address your problematic areas.

 

We will keep you running faster and longer at PhysioMotion.

Golf Swing Analysis

Golf Swing Analysis – Optimum Performance & Injury Prevention

 

 

The most common injury related to golf is back pain, followed by elbow, shoulder, wrist, hand and knee problems. These issues can cause chronic overuse injuries that will negatively affect your performance and enjoyment of the sport.

 

 

Common causes of these issues are incorrect set up, the inability to weight transfer effectively, and insufficient rotational motion and control required for an optimal golf swing.

At PhysioMotion, our Golf Swing Analysis will evaluate:

 

  • A whole body assessment through movement to identify areas of inefficient biomechanics and relate that to your golf swing.
  • Set up position & posture – identify whether your alignment is correct and your posture is primed for an optimal swing. 
  • Ball set up – we will review placement that is suited for both the desired club and assess how this works with your swing.
  • Grip type & strength – assess whether this is contributing to inaccurate ball trajectory & upper limb injuries.
  • Backswing – analysis of the path of the backswing, tempo, the top of the backswing, club position and your body’s position to enable a powerful downswing.
  • Downswing & follow through – assess how the downswing is initiated, the position of the club face at contact and any balance issues in your follow through.

Therapists at PhysioMotion, are experts at understanding the biomechanics of movement required in golf and the analysis of these motions in relation to your swing. We are not golf pros, but we are pros at identifying the specific issues with your musculoskeletal system and how it relates to your swing. 

 

Our clinical skills allow us to break down any human motion into intervals to ascertain which regions of your musculoskeletal system are non-optimal and therefore, restricting efficient movement. Once identified, we will use our unique Physiotherapy skills to address areas of stiffness, weakness and asymmetries to achieve a pain free consistent golf swing that will take your game to the next level. We welcome working closely with your golf pro.

 

Feel the difference when your body performs well and you can drive further, increase  your accuracy and lower your handicap.
