A comprehensive biomechanical examination/evaluation is very important for athlete over thirty as this will help identify any biomechanical “faults” that may lead to injury. As we age, our bodies undergo several changes including such things as muscle tightness and inflexibility. This is especially true if you haven’t been active for a while or are returning to activity after a lengthy layoff. Understanding what your biomechanical challenges are, may help selecting the proper shoe or other type of equipment that you may need. By indentifying these potential problems, steps can be taken to help with injury prevention, such as stretching the proper muscles, strengthening weak muscle groups or maybe orthotic intervention. You should be evaluated by a professional who is trained in biomechanics.
