Biomechanics Nottingham

Biomechanics testing & coaching

Do you keep getting reoccurring injuries?

Are you training for something important and you feel like you don't move quite right?

Have you tried a physiotherapist or osteopath and not quite found what you're looking for?

 

What is Biomechanics Testing?

Biomechanics testing is a unique way of testing how the body moves. We assess the body as a whole rather than just focusing on one specific area. We run 27 tests to work out which muscles and joints are moving correctly and which are not. As part of the tests, we look at key areas like your feet, knees, hips, spine and shoulders.

 

What We Test

  • Muscle function
  • Muscle imbalances
  • Range of motion
  • Movement
  • Nerve function
  • Joint mobility
  • Foot pronation / supination

 

The Aim of Biomechanics Testing

The aim of biomechanics testing is to improve movement patterns rather than reduce pain. However, as pain can be caused by faulty movement patterns, it’s quite likely that an improvement in pain levels will be noticed once you start moving better.

From experience, the timeframes you should be looking at are from 6 to 12 weeks to complete our programme. Bear in mind, however, that if you have long-standing issues it could take more time to see significant improvements.

 

Is a Biomechanics Assessment the Same as a Gait Analysis?

Yes, in the sense that gait analysis is a type of biomechanics assessment. However, in general, biomechanics tests usually assess many more areas of the body than just the feet; i.e they include a gait analysis as well as numerous other tests on other muscles and joints.

Gait analyses are often done using a treadmill but at Adjust, we prefer to look at the overall movement patterns of the body and how they impact on the feet and movement cycle (gait). It’s also for this reason that we don’t assess running styles.

 

The Initial Consultation

Your first appointment will last 1.5 hours and during that time we’ll run 27 tests to work out which parts of your body are moving correctly and which aren’t. At the end of the appointment we’ll explain our findings to you and then demonstrate some exercises you can do at home to help improve your results. These exercises could be aimed at preventing muscle spasms, increasing mobility or improving strength in certain muscles.

 

Ongoing Appointments

Each time you come in, we’ll assess you to check how you’re progressing. We may also include some form of soft tissue therapy during the appointment to maximise your results. This can range from massage and fascial release to acupuncture and stretching. We’ll also provide you with some new exercises that you can do at home to further improve your movement patterns.

For best results, we recommend a weekly appointment and we offer a discounted price for anyone who commits to 4 appointments in a month.

 

Prices:

  • Initial Consultation: £80 (1.5 hrs)
  • Follow-up Appointments: £55 (1 hr)
  • Monthly Follow-up Package: £180 (4 x 1 hr)
