Biomechanical Analysis

Biomechanics is the study of human motion. The study of biomechanics is important when determining what causes injuries and therefore how we can prevent them re-occurring. This is especially important in athletes as it can be a major cause in recurrent.

Sports physiotherapists are professionally trained to detect biomechanical faults which can predispose you to injury. Correcting these faults with hands-on treatment, strengthening and/or stretching programs can be the difference between recurrent injuries and getting back to training injury free.

Biomechanical analysis can involve:

  • Gait analysis - study of your walking pattern
  • Running analysis - study of your running style
  • Video analysis or motion capture analysis
  • Sports biomechanics - sport specific analysis
  • Workplace analysis - study of how you do you job
