Biomechanics is the internal and external forces inflicted on the human body to create movement. If there is a biomechanical problem this can increase the risk and even cause injury to the skeletal muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. Biomechanical problems are abnormalities in the movements produced by the internal and external forces and the body’s ability to react to them. These abnormalities can be treated through a course of Physiotherapy to correct the problem and prevent further injury. These types of injuries can cause great problems for the athletic population as they can prevent them from participating and could have long lasting effects on their performance. Please contact us or call 0330 088 7800 to arrange an appointment today.
