THROWING ANALYSIS SERVICES
2D THROWING ANALYSIS
Through the use of 2D highspeed cameras, we will analyze your throwing mechanics with emphasis on kinematic sequencing, balance, posture, and positioning of arms, trunk, and hips. This will give preliminary insight into injury risks and muscular strength and flexibility imbalances indicated by biomechanical deficiencies. This appointment will be 1 hour long. After a proper warm-up we will then take videos of your throw in 2 different views. We will then go through video together and give you our biomechanical and strength and conditioning recommendations based on the findings to help reduce your overall risk of injury.
3D THROWING ANALYSIS
Our state-of-the-art 3D analysis system, featured in Sports Illustrated, allows us to analyze your throwing mechanics from every angle to reveal mechanical flaws, deficiencies, and other factors that increase your risk for injury.
This comprehensive evaluation consists of two visits. The first visit is 1.5 hours and begins with a clinical and functional assessment of the throwers’ strength and flexibility. Reflective markers will then be placed all over the body’s bony landmarks for our 3D motion capture system. After a proper warm-up, a 3D analysis is then performed on the throwing mechanics. The second visit is one hour and occurs 1-2 weeks later after the data has been analyzed. During this session, findings of the 3D analysis are discussed along with recommendations for changes to throwing mechanics, strength, and flexibility to reduce the overall risk of injury.
