Sport Technique Analysis
The most beneficial method for injury prevention and improving performance in many sports is to improve an athlete’s technique.
At Physio Fit, we apply our in depth knowledge of biomechanics to improve technique for various sports and activities. Our physiotherapists may correct actions of an athlete in order to improve the execution whilst minimising the risk of injury of a skill. We have expertise in a wide range of sports including soccer, tennis, volleyball, baseball, basketball olympic/powerlifting, Crossfit and many others.
The best athletes are the ones who can train all year round, working each day to achieve their goals through both training and recovery; however one of the most common issues in the weightlifting community that sets athletes back and prevents optimal progression are injuries. Weightlifting is an innately safe sport however the main cause of injury are small technique faults, which accumulate wear and tear over time, leading to muscle/tendon injuries and prevents the athlete from reaching their full potential.
At Physio Fit we will utilise our vast knowledge and experience in this specific area to optimise technique, correct minor flaws that may be missed, provide advice on progression/load and to advise on which technique would be ideal for your body type in all lifts including:
- Bench press
- Pull ups
- Olympic lifting
At Physio Fit we understand that as a high level strength athlete what is important to you is a comprehensive understanding of the demands of your sport. Have you been to a health professional before who understands the biomechanical differences between a high vs low bar squat, or why you may choose to sumo vs conventional pull? If not it may be of great benefit to enlist the help of a Physio Fit physiotherapist who, as an example, instantly understands why you get pain at the front of your shoulder when you low bar squat and how to program this so your bench doesn’t suffer as a result.
This is the Physio Fit difference.
Have you ever watched professional sport and wondered how some athletes can generate power so effortlessly and maintain injury free year round whilst competing at the top level? This is due to their techniques being almost flawless, taking advantage of the body’s natural levers to create momentum and produce maximum force.
Physio Fit offers a detailed analysis and evaluation of your sporting technique using the latest software combined with expert opinion. Depending on your sporting demands you will be paired with a physiotherapist who has extensive knowledge in your chosen discipline and thoroughly understands the requirements involved.
