Biomechanics Sunshine CoastMarch 21, 2012
The field of biomechanics looks at how the various parts of the body move during any particular activity. From a physiotherapy perspective, an understanding of the biomechanics of movement is vital in determining what structure or structures may be the cause of pain or less than optimal performance of a task. For example, in the shoulder, if certain muscles responsible for the stabilisation of your joint during throwing are not active during the right phase of movement you may develop a dysfunctional biomechanical pattern and could get pain or restriction as a result.
At Sportscare, our experienced team of physiotherapists all use their detailed knowledge of the biomechanics of the human body to give you the best possible outcomes, whatever the body area and activity.
