Biomechanical Assessments

​Biomechanical Assessments

Parkview Sports Medicine is redefining sports performance and injury prevention through innovative biomechanical assessments – a tool that evaluates how well your body achieves movement. During these assessments, our physical therapists use video analysis to identify deficiencies in movement and provide recommendations for improvement.

Benefits

No matter your sport or athletic aspirations, biomechanical assessments can help you enhance your sports-specific skills and endurance while reducing your risk of injury.

Specifically, you can:

  • Perfect the movements required for your sport-specific skills (throwing, jumping, running, hitting, kicking  or cutting)

  • Correct movements that are different between the right and left sides of your body, or between muscles that work in opposition to each other Ike your hamstrings and quadriceps

  • Strengthen muscles around a joint that are weaker, or loosen muscles that are less flexible, on one side of the joint than the other

  • Retrain muscles that perform poorly due to improper habit or posture

  • Identify and reduce tightness in a joint that results in limited motion
