Biomechanics & Movement Coaching
move freely, improve performance
What is intrinsic biomechanics?
Biomechanics falls into two categories: Extrinsic and Intrinsic. Extrinsic looks at analysing and performing a movement in an optimal mechanically efficient way. Intrinsic studies the body's capacity and ability to perform movements from the individuals own mechanical makeup. It seeks to answer why someone may be moving the way they are.
Because the body is an integrated system, it is important to consider the whole body and find the root cause of potential dysfunction. After screening the pelvis, spine, shoulders, knees & feet as well as neural and core function, a bespoke corrective excercise programme provides the opportunity to restore normal function to the body.
What are the benefits?
Having an intrinsic biomechanics trainer takes the guess work out of why you may not be able to perform certain movements and tasks. If you're frustrated at your physical limitations in the gym or in your chosen sport or you simply want to be able to perform the tasks of every day living without discomfort, then this is for you.
By assessing function and implementing the plan, you can expect:
- Reduced injury risk and relief from recurring injuries
- Move without discomfort and improve those everyday aches, niggles and stiffness
- Improved function and range of motion
- Optimal performance - you may wish to run or cycle faster, be more comfortable in the saddle, improve squat form or deadlifting. Whatever your chosen sport, improving function will improve your performance.
