Biomechanical Analysis

Biomechanical Assessment at Elsternwick Melbourne

Biomechanics is a study of human movement through the principles of physics and engineering. Biomechanical assessments incorporate dynamic anatomy knowledge with the mechanical properties of tissues such as muscle, tendon, ligament and bone to predict likelihood of injuries. Therefore, detailed analysis of movements is helpful to minimize the risk of injuries and to improve performance.

Sport biomechanics covers the area of science concerned with the analysis of the mechanics of human movement during sporting events. As previously mentioned, correct biomechanics and correct technique will provide efficient movement. Hence, it may reduce the risk of injuries. In sport, it is always good to correct training technique as much as possible, as abnormal or faulty biomechanics often cause an injury or dysfunction.
