Biomechanical Analysis and Performance Care
Benifits of Biomechanical Analysis
Use it to improve your performance!
The more effective your body biomechanics are, the less energy you will expend, and the better your body will perform.
Performance care acts to improve an athlete’s performance in his or her chosen sport. Subtle or gross changes in the physiology of an athlete’s body can have tremendous impact on the time and effort required to perform an activity.
Difficult training regimes, repetitive motions (swimming, running, cycling), and overworked muscles all place a great deal of stress on an athlete’s body.
Repetitive motion, constant tension, and pressure often result in inflammation and swelling of soft tissue. The body responds to this inflammation by laying down scar tissue (cross fibers across the tissue) in an attempt to stabilize the affected area. This scar tissue:
Inhibits nerve function
Causes ongoing friction and pressure
Results in the production of yet more cross fibers and adhesions across inflamed soft tissues
Consider the basic biomechanics of how our body performs. Our bodies are designed to work in balance – every time a group of muscles contracts to perform an action, an opposing group of muscles (antagonists) must relax and lengthen. These muscles can only contract as forcefully as their antagonist can relax.
