Sports Injury Prevention and “Tune-Up”

Free up restricted joints:  Joints that are not moving 100% freely will slow you down and require more muscular effort and energy, therefore tiring you more.  Your potential full range of movement will not be achieved.

Stimulate relevant muscle groups:  Muscles that are not relaxed and alert will not react in a fast and explosive manner but will be more prone to injury. Tight muscles will consume excessive energy and also reduce your range of movement.

Free up the diaphragm:  A tight diaphragm will restrict your breathing, hence reducing your oxygen intake and adversely affecting your performance and recovery.

Connect the body:  One part of the body that does not function optimally can affect other areas.  Muscle chains are muscles which enhance (or reduce) other muscles eg., postural muscles in the neck can affect postural muscles in the lower back, so a lower back weakness can be caused by a muscular tension in the neck.

Target known weaknesses and areas prone to injury:  If you have any known weaknesses or injury prone areas special attention will be given to this.
