Biomechanics is the study of the human body, the body’s mechanics, and how it moves in mechanical terms. The science is divided into two areas of study – Extrinsic and Intrinsic Biomechanics.
Extrinsic Biomechanics looks at movements, the measurement of those movements or tasks, and then establishes the most efficient way to maximise those movements and ultimately improve sports performance. It is an important science that is relevant to any sport, fitness or work-related physical conditioning.
Intrinsic Biomechanics, on the other hand, is the study of how the body is able to perform those tasks or movements in relation to the individual’s mechanical make-up in the inside. Our intrinsic biomechanics determines our ability and efficiency to perform movement.
Intrinsic biomechanics can be affected by our genetics, age, previous injury history, or simply by daily tasks such as sitting at a desk, driving or running in the wrong shoes. Most importantly, the analysis of intrinsic biomechanics helps us understand why we may experience pain, why we may be prone to injury, and how we can prevent this.
This is a cutting edge programme, developed by world leader and consultant of innovation, Martin Haines, and the Master Trainer team at Biomechanics Education Ltd. iMoveFreely® is a simple preparation for movement exercise programme that the most forward thinking athletes, sports teams, government associations and large employee conscious corporations have had access to for a few years.
Do you believe that modern day sedentary lifestyle is reducing your ability to move well?
Who is it right for?
People who are experiencing any low non-specific ache, pain, discomfort or restricted movement.
People who play sport and want to learn how to prepare for it properly whilst reducing injury risk.
People with repetitive strain or recurring injuries. People who have stopped doing a particular activity because it’s become too painful or uncomfortable.
How does it work?
The screening process takes under an hour and involves getting an understanding of your background, before you are taken through a simple series of assessments that will identify any areas where correction may be required.
A simple exercise programme is then provided to you with tried and tested corrective exercise techniques that have been designed specifically to improve your movement. You’ll do these exercises for a few weeks and if your problem is of a biomechanical nature, there will be an improvement in movement and possibly a reduction in pain. This is due to the fact that correcting biomechanical flaws can relieve pressure at the cause of pain which may be on another part of your body.
Many people may not even realise that they have a problem and just how quickly they can potentially improve. It is easy to forget how freely your body should be able to move when it’s functioning biomechanically correctly.
iMoveFreely® is not intended to replace a medical diagnosis or pain treatment. It does, however, offer a unique injury prevention tool that may complement any existing care you are receiving from a healthcare professional, especially if they are not skilled at prescribing exercises.
We always recommend seeing a medical practitioner for serious injury and/or discomfort.
Whether you are currently suffering from a problem, large or small or you may think that your movement is fine, the likelihood is that you’ll gain a lot from a biomechanical screening, so call now and let’s see if we can improve your quality of life: 07530 813225
