I'd like to talk to you today about something we physios refer to as 'neuromuscular control'.
In a nutshell this is your body's unconscious ability to activate muscles in preparation and as a response to joint motion and loading. Basically it requires millions of subtle muscle contractions and relaxations to maintain your joints in the best possible position to reduce injury. And here's the interesting bit we can get better at doing this which helps us to get over and reduce risk to injury.
Here at the Performance Lab we use highly skilled assessments and tests to score your neuromuscular control.
We know what test scores you need to be able to safely walk, hike, run, return to sport.
Example of tests:
Joint position sense
The star excursion balance test
Cybex proprioception tests
If you want to see great performance results and avoid injury come and give us a shout at the Performance lab
See you next week
