AND – It is also common to see an average golfer drop 3-4 strokes off of their handicap with better biomechanics.
Are you about to start yet another summer running season with the fear of being shut down by that chronic pain in your leg? Running should be a JOY! Not a constant battle with heel pain, shin splints, knee pain, hip pain or low back pain. If you have ever wondered why you have that muscle/joint pain in one leg and not the other; or if you have decided that using the same anti-inflammatories until your gut rots is probably not wise; or you are weary of simply resting and doing those same rehab exercises, only to find that when you return to running your symptoms return; then we should see you for a detailed biomechanical assessment. We can help you get back to running, training and tramping, and enjoying yourself!
AND – optimizing your running mechanics can enhance performance by helping you to recover faster, and train harder without those nagging injuries.
If you are one of the many who gave up running and resorted to cycling due to chronic injury, but still have some joint/muscle pains even with the cycling, we can show you why this is. Even though you are not pounding on your feet, you are still putting pressure on your feet on the downstroke of your cycle. Often, a forefoot biomechanical problem can lead to excessive pronation of the forefoot causing persistent knee and hip pain, especially with hill training. So, having your foot function assessed both weight bearing and not weight bearing by someone who understands the mechanics of both, can help to find a solution to that recurring joint/muscle pain.
AND – optimizing your biomechanicals can enhance performance by improving recovery.
Getting the bat around with speed and accuracy is largely a function of leading with your trunk and using your core muscles to transfer rotation from your feet, through your trunk and into your upper body to swing the bat to create bat speed. Notice that this starts from your feet up. If one foot collapses more than the other, this creates an imbalance at the base of your swing and causes weakness and potentially injury. This type of biomechanical weakness will cause you to compensate in your spine and shoulders causing pain and injury.
AND – these injuries can be prevented, and your performance enhanced by optimizing your foot mechanics.
