At NYDNR we use most advanced force plate technology and 3D video analysis to evaluate biomechanics of an athlete in motion. This cutting edge analysis is of particular importance to runners and athletes who are involved in cutting and jumping movements.
Biomechanical analysis can register the forces involved with athletic movement. When these forces exceed normal there is excessive stress to joints, muscles and ligaments. The excessive forces are always the result of poor muscle coordination, improper technique (motor control) and muscular weakness. The in depth biomechanical analysis allows differentiation of these factors and provides proper strategy to reduce injury and improve performance.
The combination of force plate and high-speed cameras with intricate software allows us to register and measure:
In order to take the best course of action in a treatment plan for your condition, it’s important to have a keen understanding of the external and internal forces that are at work during movement.
Not only is it important for the staff to understand these forces, it allows you to put your own damage control in place, avoiding further injury or future injuries during movement. Through careful study of biomechanics and motor control, we will be able to help you to
correct your movement patterns. As a result, you can avoid muscle strain, improve shock absorption, avoid overloading your joints and improve performance by becoming more efficient athlete.
In the Age of Technology, most humans are spending increasingly less time on our feet, and increasingly more hours in some sort of sitting posture. Driving, working on a computer, being entertained and becoming educated all entail long bouts of sitting with few interludes of standing, walking or large muscle movement of any kind.

Chronic shoulder pain from rotator cuff tendinosis is difficult to ignore, and it may keep you from performing even the most basic tasks. The longer it goes on, the more it interferes with your quality of life, making it difficult to carry out simple activities of daily living that you once took for granted. In […]Read More (0)
