- Biomechanics is the study of human movement through the principles of physics and engineering, and how human motion is affected by the mechanical properties of tissue such as muscle, tendon, ligament, and bone. It is also important that all ‘moving parts’ of the body interact with the nervous system in a way that avoids strain and injury.
- At Pinnacle, we use principles of biomechanics to assess how a person moves their body, and how the movement might be adjusted to ensure that soft tissues are not put under unnecessary strain, that joints are moving most efficiently, and that muscles are working properly to provide adequate movement support.
- In cases where body movement is not as it should be, injury can result. Often, a biomechanical assessment is the first step in developing a treatment program that is very effective in relieving pain and stiffness symptoms. Even more importantly, these assessments form an important part of training patients in the self-management of their pain and stiffness symptoms.
