What is Biomechanical Analysis?

Biomechanical Analysis

Biomechanics is the study of human motion. The study of biomechanics is important when determining what causes injuries and therefore how we can prevent them re-occurring.  This is especially important in elite athletes but can be a major cause in recurrent injuries in the less gifted amateur athlete. 

Physiotherapists are professionally trained to detect biomechanical faults which can predispose you to injury. 

Biomechanical analysis can involve:

  • gait analysis - study of your walking pattern.
  • running analysis - study of your running style.
  • video analysis or motion capture analysis.
  • sports biomechanics - sport specific analysis.
  • workplace analysis - study of how you do you job.
  • biomechanics of running, sprinting, swimming, throwing etc.

For more advice regarding biomechanics analysis, please consult with your physiotherapist.
