Biomechanical Evaluations

Here at New You Health and Wellness in Wauwatosa, WI, we understand just how important it is to our patients to be able to get out and enjoy friends, family, fun activities, and sporting events.

There is no better time like the present to start moving and feeling our best! But if movement hurts then that is going to keep you on the couch or the sidelines.

Did you know that if your joints or muscles are bothering you or keeping you from fully enjoying all of your extracurricular activities, sports, or other events, this could be a sign that there are some imbalances in system that are causing inflammation and pain.

A biomechanical evaluation at New You Health and Wellness is your answer.

Research shows that activity-related pain may have biomechanical origins, meaning how you are moving could be continually creating excess wear and tear and inflammation in your muscles and joints causing pain. In addition, faulty movement patterns can cause increased joint stress, soft tissue strain, and muscle overuse.

The good news is that New You Health and Wellness in Wauwatosa, WI is here to help you get back to feeling your best with our specialty physical therapy services. It doesn’t matter if you have suffered from a sports injury and are trying to get back on the field, if you need a bit of support and guidance after a long period of inactivity, or have been experiencing pain for years, our therapists can pinpoint and target your problem and help you form a great solution. Call us today to schedule an appointment!

Steps to improving your movement patterns

Have you noticed pain in your hips, knees, or other joints that make it difficult for you to walk, stand, or climb stairs? Do you find yourself reaching out for walls, railings, or other objects to balance yourself? If so, you might have a biomechanical issue that needs attention.

Underlying musculoskeletal and neurological disorders can cause or aggravate a balance or how you walk. There are many reasons why this kind of condition may occur, and it can cause both physical and psychological stress in your daily life.

At New You Health and Wellness, we can manage your symptoms and in many cases, we can help relieve the issue all together with our biomechanical assessments.

What should I expect with biomechanical assessments?

Addressing pain (or a gait/balance issue) requires your practitioner, typically a physical therapist, your movement specialist to first figure out where the problem is coming from. This is why at our clinic, we perform in-depth biomechanical assessments to determine the root cause(s) of your pain and /or movement dysfunction. We use this information to design an individualized treatment plan addressing the root cause(s) of your pain as opposed to only treating the symptoms.

If you’ve never had a biomechanical assessment done, you will be surprised at what you learn. The skilled physical therapists here at New You Health and Wellness in Wauwatosa, WI watch and analyze your movements to determine where the imbalance lies.

We also perform biomechanical assessments aimed at enhancing physical performance and preventing injury especially for those who want to stay active. Whether you are 16 or 96, New You Health and Wellness can help.

If you are living with a pain condition or physical limitation, call our clinic today to learn more about how our biomechanical assessments can help you to get back to enjoying life.
