Back On Track- MSK Screening For Sports & Athletic Performance
The back on track -MSK screening program for sports provides clear directions to implement corrective exercises which
will assist in diminishing deficiencies and correcting imbalances seen in sports athletes
- OPTIMISING ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE
- PREVENTS POTENTIAL FUTURE AND INJURIES
- PAIN FREE FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS
are mainly two types of sports injuries: traumatic and over use that could be acute and chronic. An injury that occurs suddenly,
such as a sprained ankle caused by an awkward landing, is known as an acute injury. Chronic injuries are caused by repeated
overuse of muscle groups or joints and include cramps, tears and strains. With increased exposure to sport in the adolescence
period, there is higher risk of overusing the muscles, tendons and bones. Sports therapists and biomechanics coaches
are areas trained in assessing, planning and teaching exercises that address musculoskeletal strength and flexibility
factors that predispose people to injury. By identifying deficiency in strength and flexibility, they will prescribe exercises
to address these issues and prevent further injury
You will first be biomechanically assessed for deficiencies
and imbalances seen in your static posture and dynamic movement patterns. Then a treatment rehabilitation process will
begin to -'Get back on track to sports'. The process will consist of a 5 phase development process to get you
back to effective sporting performance !
-Symetric neuromuscular activation and control in isolation
-Develop coordination of the muscles,
strength-endurance, static balance and core stability (commence advanced core/balance program)
-Develop an aerobic and anaerobic capacity/power
-Basic agility drills
-Develop symmetric eccentric and isometric strength
-Build up sports (tennis/running , golf etc )
functional strengthening and dynamic balance
Develop a sports specific speed, agility and explosive power (Plyometrics)

Ergonomics Of Driving Position-A Postural Analysis
Remaining alert is the most essential need when controlling a vehicle on the
road,there are few other occasions where we are at such risk. The driving position we are obliged to assume and the
activities we have to perform whilst driving cause us to become drowsy and sleepy ,stressed and often uncomfortable ,especially
for long distance driving.The family car is well designed to get from one point to another ,but is not necessarily ergonomically
designed for muskuloskeletal ( MSK) function. Biomechanical principles must be related to engineering practice to successfully
match driver performance with vehicle design, a new postural concept is suggested as a basis to enable such principles
to be applied effectively.
Ergonomics is the study of designing
equipment and devices that fit the human body,its movements and its cognitive abilities .The drivers car seat is the most
important part in the car -in terms of safety- ,without proper posture when on the driver seat ,the driver will cause the
spine to become misaligned and could be a causative factor for impaired concentration when driving. To obtain drivers
optimal postural position ,the drivers seat must be equipped with features such as ergonomics,comfort and easy
to adapt,good design of car seat also can help reduce fatigue whilst driving.
Body Coach Fitness -Driving & Ergonomics assessment - can be used as an occupational health and safety tool to
find the ideal ergonomically designed postural position for you in your car.Occupations at risk can include any person in
a vehicle ( car,truck,ambulance ,racing car etc )who is likely to experience aches and pains. Exercise protocols for
lower back pain,foot cramps,stiff neck and sore shoulders from poor posture ,stress and tension from extended time in poor
posture whilst driving can be included as part of this program to improve general driving comfort.
This driver assessment program could include the following:-
-Driving position biomechanical postural assessment & movement assessment ,with full plan of action
& follow up reassessment
-Driving ergonomics ( adjustable seat
heights,headroom,steering wheel reach ,head rest and head restraint and seat back rest and lumber support
-Selecting a suitable vehicle ( matching requirements ,layout and ergonomics and features)
-Car environment ( temperature ,humidity,ventilation ,visual field and noise levels )
-Getting in & Out of The vehicle ( functional movement pattern programming )

Biomechanics & Gait -In Pregnancy
Most people do not realise the musculoskeletal changes that a pregnant
mother can go through during and after pregnancy. The pregnant women's body not only goes through hormonal chnages affecting
the baby and mother but also structural/potural and gait changes due to abnormal loads placed on the human body.
The hormone relaxin plays a decisive role in in the mechanics of the bodies movements ,as it provides greater ligament
laxity in the pelvis and peripheral joints.The increase in maternal weight can affect load on the spine ,pelvic area and affect
posture causing lower back pain and mechanical gait and musculoskelatal issues.
Body Coach Fitness offers biomechanics ,gait and lower back pain analysis for pregnant and post natal ladies
specifically looking at addressing the musculoskelatal issues surrounding pregnancy ,(plus an advisory ergonomic assessment
for fitting for suitable buggies/prams and baby carriers ) looking at the best fit for your own bodies biomechanics. This
will allow for personalised programming for functional activities of daily living during and after pregnancy eg how to lift
and carry baby and postural exercises to improve any musculoskelatal imbalances occuring during /after pregancy.*(This assessment/program
shuld be used inconjunction with GP/practitioner advice and permission )*

Children's Biomechanics Program
Body Coach Fitness has developed a children's biomechanics assessment/program ( in association
with a podiatrist specialising In children's gait ). Podopaediatrics is the study of children's
feet. This is focused on treating and addressing early foot deformities and paediatric foot health.This
program looks at minors gait and biomechanics for improved form and function.
do we assess children?
In the first initial treatment you will see a specialist Podiatrists,
who in conjunction with the parent/guardian will take a full medical history, including birth history and immunizations
your child has received ,combined with an initial assessment of posture foot index PFI and gait and biomechanics through
Body Coach Fitness.
Will orthotics be of use to children?
Many children benefit from foot Orthotic therapy and at Brightwell Clinic we find it rewarding to help many
children to enjoy sports without symptoms. The biomechanics ,gait and podo paediatric assessment will allow for personalised
-biomechanics ,form and function programming and suitable orthotic supports for your growing child.
Will the orthotics still work as feet grow?
Prescription Orthotic Devices
will last for one and a half shoe sizes.
A special Policy can be
taken out by Parents to allow for upgrades to take place as children grow. This is explained in full to all parents.
*As this assessment /program is extremely specialised ,please contact Mrs Sharon Clare direct on Sharon@bodycoachfitness.com or 07875086760 for more details and pricing*
Biomechanics -Mobility & Gait Program For Seniors
Body Coach Fitness now offers a combined biomechanics assessment ,mobility
and gait program specifically for seniors . Any good coach/trainer knows the importance of intrinsic biomechanics ,specifically
in simple activities like standing and walking. Posture and gait are perhaps the two most important aspects of human biomechanics
when it comes to a persons long term health success .It is not uncommon for severe deficits in postural gait dynamics to appear
in otherwise healthy older adults /seniors paying attention to this is -essential. Over 90% of hip fractures are due
to falls in the elderly /seniors ,changes in the hip resulting from age and lack of activity can affect
gait biomechanics ,along with growing weakness in the ankles shifting the pattern of movement putting undue stress on the
joints ,making it more likely to get injuries as we age.
Walking is a fundamental motor
skill that significantly affects the level of independence in older adults. It is well established that a large proportion
of falls in older people occurs when walking. The prevention of falls is vital for minimizing disability ,preventing
injury,and impeding the development of frailty and subsequent deterioration in -quality of life.
We carry out a intrinsic biomechancs assessment ,followed by an analysis of biomechanical gait whilst
walking which helps deal with various postural changes that occur though natural aging in the human body which
can affect function and mobility. This program is a mobility impairment prevention program, ideal for active and non- active
seniors looking to improve form and function for every day life.It can also be used to assess the ergonomics of adaption aids
for walking and mobility .
