Biomechanics - What is it?
The study of the mechanical laws relating to the movement or structure of living organisms.
Basically there is 2 forms of Biomechanics - Extrinsic (External) and Intrinsic (Internal)
This can be a very complex analysis of the performance of movements using high level and expensive machinery like isokinetic systems and kinematics to help us understand the forces, loads and levers at play during a particular movement. In a practical sense, this also includes what an exercise professional sees when they look at their client move and then correct it with interventions such as verbal and visual cues.
This is the analysis of what is happening inside the body which creates the extrinsic movements. An understanding of the internal neuro-musculoskeletal system and how this integrated system is the basis for what we see through the extrinsic analysis.
A BT or the more qualified BC will apply up to 42 manual and visual assessments to understand better how the client’s pelvis, spine, shoulders and legs/feet function.
- Then provide the relevant iMoveFreely® exercises to support this information.
- Apply the Preparation/Performance principles of strength and conditioning to reduce the likelihood of returning to poorer levels of dysfunction thus creating better body awareness in clients..
We repair your past hurts and issues
A Biomechanics assessment will highlight any imbalances present in the body and the BC will provide exercises to address these imbalances and help you to perform optimally
How to recover your body injury by exercise
Injuries manifest themselves in dysfunction and the BC will address these issues and provide rehabilitation exercises to address the dysfunction
How to protect your body from aches and pains
Sitting around most of the day be it at work or at home will eventually result in sarcopenia, the degenerative loss of muscle mass. It’s not a disease, and it can occur in healthy people, and the primary cause is sedentary living. The saying “use it or lose it” is perfectly applicable to sarcopenia. The key is making your muscles do things by pushing them out of their comfort zone. In turn, this sends a message that your muscles are important and you want to keep them around. In contrast, when you don’t use your muscles, you send a message that they are not important. In response, your body stops supporting your muscles with energy, which causes them to atrophy (shrink). So the harder you work your muscles, the more your body appreciates them. This is turn will ensure your body works as intended and go a long way to preventing aches and pains.
At Inrhythm we not only assess your Biomechanics, we also provide you the knowledge and skills to help you maintain your body and ensure that your body performs the way it was designed.
