A musculoskeletal screening is performed with three aims:
1. Prevent injury
2. Enhance performance
3. Determine readiness for training
The screening assesses posture, flexibility, stability and assesses commonly injured areas in the athletes sport.
The information gathered in the screening leads to the development of two programs:
- Body Management Flexibility – Stretching, self trigger pointing, self joint mobilisations, active range control.
- Body Management Stability/Strength – Core stability, activation drills, scapula stability, rotator cuff strength, hip stability and balance.
The programs are both individualised and specific to the physical requirements of the athletes sport. For younger athletes from the age of ten years old, this program becomes the first step in their athletic development journey.
