Baseball and softball players are at risk for injury when they use incorrect form or poor movement patterns. These athletes are also prime candidates for a tool to help them take their game to the next level. Motion analysis might be the answer.
The 3-D motion analysis system studies an athlete's movement in order to identify areas of weakness that may contribute to musculoskeletal dysfunction and decreased performance.
Craig Garrison is a physical therapist and researcher for Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine. He is part of a team of sports physical therapists who work with baseball and softball players to tweak subtle deficiencies in their game.
Take your performance to the next level with the help of a motion analysis study.
3-D Motion Analysis System
The Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine Motion Analysis System analyzes movement for research, clinical, and sports performance purposes.
The study of human movement is the process of visualizing how one might perform certain movements in space, in this case, for the purpose of performing a specific task related to sports. Although this process may be difficult to view in real time, motion capture allows the movement to be viewed and analyzed at a high rate of speed in order to detect subtle deficiencies not seen by the human eye.
The motion analysis system provides services to individuals with orthopedic and sports medicine conditions with an emphasis on the analysis of movement in overhead athletes and movement dysfunction in the lower extremity.
