Identifying movement patterns and preventing injuries

Athletes depend on strength, flexibility and mobility to perform at their best. A breakdown in an athlete's movement patterns can lead to injury. Champion Sports Medicine's sports physical therapy and athletic training experts are committed to helping you identify poor movement patterns and prevent injury with a movement screen and biomechanical analysis.

Movement screen and biomechanical analysis

A movement screen identifies fundamental and functional movement patterns and their weaknesses, whether it's mobility or stability. We also assess your biomechanics - or gait and motion - and test your strength and flexibility. This analysis identifies faulty movement patterns that may impact your risk of injury and overall performance.

What to expect

Your physical therapist or athletic trainer will listen as you detail your sport or activity to learn how your movement patterns may be impacting performance. We use the only FDA-approved 3D wearable sensor on the market: the dorsaVi™ Movement Suite and ViPerform™ Athletic Movement Index™ (AMI).

Your physical therapist or athletic trainer will take you through a variety of exercises using dorsaVi™, which measures motion, acceleration and muscle activity on different parts of your body. By recording data at 200 frames per second, dorsaVi™ provides visual, objective, easily interpreted data to assess technique and movement.

You will be provided with a detailed report and video analysis that identifies your specific movement patterns. Based on the screening reports, your physical therapist or athletic trainer will develop a customized exercise program detailing corrective changes specific to your needs and performance goals.

The benefits of this technology include:

  • Accurately quantifies athlete's movement inefficiencies that impact risk and athletic performance.
  • Provides sensitive measure of limb symmetry for determining risk and return-to-play.
  • Mitigates risk and enhances performance with the testing and corrective program developed based on results of assessment.
  • Tracks recovery and progress.

Our goal is to use sports science, clinical application and technology to decrease your risk of injury, improve performance or reduce pain and enhance recovery should an injury occur.
