The main form of adversity that an athlete or team may face during a career or season is injury.
The number one reason for non-contact injury during practice and competition is poor joint stabilization (inability to maintain proper form during explosive and non-explosive movement).
Correcting these dysfunctional patterns and red flags at an early age sets the athlete up for greater physical gains and less injury throughout the course of their careers.
We use our sport specific TriMotus® Movement Screen to analyze immobility, muscle weakness and Functional Capacity. Functional capacity is the point at which an athlete is no longer able to maintain proper movement strategies due to the strain on the working movement system. When strain exceeds the amount of coordination the nervous system can produce, compensation will occur (recruitment of non-ideal muscle groups causing poor form that leads to injury).
TriMotus practitioners identify the 3 types of athlete strain:
Identifying these 3 types of strain on all athletes is a prerequisite before we start a high intensity strength training program. A common mistake we see is training athletes to become bigger, faster, and stronger through general strength training without complex movement screening and finding an individual athletes functional capacity.
- WE FOCUS ON INCREASING FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY
- THIS EQUIPS ATHLETES WITH THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO MOVE PROPERLY AND EFFICIENTLY THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THEIR CAREER
- RESTORING PROPER FUNCTION INCREASES PERFORMANCE IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE
