Identifying Biomechanical Reasons for Injury

Home / Services / Identifying Biomechanical Reasons for Injury

We are all made differently and run, walk and exercise in our own particular way. Occasionally the stresses we put our body through when exercising, combined with our particular style and body make-up – our ‘biomechanics’ can lead to overuse injury such as tendinopathy, shin splints, heel pain (‘plantar fasciitis’) tennis elbow, or chronic muscle or joint pains.

Fundamental to recovery for these injuries is to identify, understand and manage these biomechanical issues. This strongly underpins the clinical management skills of a sport and exercise medicine (SEM) consultant. By understanding an injury rather than blocking it through painkillers or steroid injection, or correcting things through surgery, the SEM consultant can help to correct the underlying cause rather than treat just the presenting injury.
