Helping you to achieve top sporting performances. SAS tailors athletes specific training methods for optimised results and injury prevention.
Isokinetic Assessment, Diagnosis & Rehabilitation
SPS are pleased to be able to offer State of the Art Rehabilitation via the use of a Biodex Isokinetic Dynamometer. In simple terms this is a complex multigym that is linked to a computer. Following injury or an operation we can use isokinetics to identify specific muscle weakness or inhibition which can have negative effects over surrounded joints.
SPS can accurately and reliably test limbs for imbalance in opposing muscle groups e.g.. Quads to Hamstrings both Concentrically and Eccentrically and compare to the uninjured limb. This provides baselines for true objective treatments and Pre/Rehabilitation.
Video Biomechanical Gait Analysis
Utilising Digital Video analysis we are able to offer meaningful solutions to common biomechanical dysfunctions. Through frame by frame analysis and measurement we are able to detect even the smallest changes in the gait pattern or shifts in the centre of gravity which can be indicative of podiatric (foot) or other musculoskeletal problems.
Some of the manyproblems we identify via our assessments include; rear foot varus, planta fasciitis, ITB syndrome, patella femoral pain and dysfunction, bursitis, low back pain and many tendinopathies and muscular problems.
