Injury Prevention & Performance Enhancement

The excessive or highly-repetitive movements involved in most sports can often cause people recurring injury, pain, and a decrease in performance. Many sporting injuries can be avoided with a better understanding of your body’s postural weaknesses and by correcting technique.

  • Highly-repetitive movements
  • Recurring injury and pain
  • Decrease in performance

Althlete Assessments

Our biomechanical assessments can help determine underlying factors which may be contributing to your condition. Poor foot posture and how the foot strikes the ground when walking/running can result in excessive stresses on muscles, tendons, and bones in the feet and legs. Therefore by improving gait posture, and efficiency of gait this can eliminate symptoms and help athletes stay injury-free.
