Biomechanical Analysis

Take your performance to the next level by ensuring your body performs to its optimum ability.

The key to high performance is effective movement patterns. We use the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) to look for energy leakage in your movement patterns due to poor biomechanics and lack of stability.

By screening the seven key movement patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations, asymmetries and faulty movement patterns leading to various compensations, sub-optimal movement patterns, poor biomechanics and possibly contributing to future injury as well as increased micro-trauma to your joints.

Once your assessment has been analysed your physiotherapist will specifically prescribe an individualised corrective programme that will eliminate inefficiencies and maximise your performance.

Functional Training

If you’re into your sport or fitness, Functional Training is the key to improving your performance, no matter what your goal is.  Functional Training is a popular buzzword in the fitness industry thanks to programmes like CrossFit.  In short, Functional Training is improving movements that directly translates into your everyday life and sport or exercise.  It enhances the coordinated working relationship between the muscular and nervous systems.  The brain thinks in terms of whole motions, not individual muscles.  Functional Training is exercise with a purpose. 

We’ve brought in some cool kit like the Pilates Reformer, an Incline Treadmill, Rip60s, Oov and the SurfSets.  So if you want to improve your sports performance, or take your exercise programme to the next level, then come and talk to us and find out how we can fine tune your body movements to perform at their best so you get the very most out of your body.
