What is Biomechanics?
Clinical biomechanics is the science that looks for dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system (posture). By analysing the way you move and function during activity & sport, we are able to identify the abnormal motion patterns that are causing your injury. Sub-4 uses the very latest technology in kinetics (the study ground reaction forces) and kinematics (the study of movement) to find the cause of your injury.
Clifton has carried out over 15,000 two-hour assessments and has an extremely high success rate, which s why clients travel from all over the UK and from other countries to be assessed by him.
The other unique aspect to Clifton’s biomechanical assessment is that he uses theories, clinical protocol and medical instruments (Digital Pelvic Inclinometer) developed by him here at Sub-4 Health & Sub-4 Technologies.
Comment from Clifton “our postures compensate over many years for natural asymmetry in of skeletons, for example leg length inequality (LLI). During these adaptive compensatory changes we become asymmetrical in functional in various joint complexes and muscle groups. Our pelvis changes from it normal orientation and function creating pelvic twits (torsion). These adaptive mechanics will eventually lead to dysfunction and eventual injury as abnormal forces build around our joints etc. The lower back and pelvis is particularly vulnerable to injury and chromic pain because the upper body sits on the pelvis and the legs articulate from the pelvis. Any difference in leg length (all of us!), will lead to injury at some point. I developed the Digital Pelvic Inclinometer (DPI) to quantify pelvic and spinal function so that I could get to the route of the injury quickly. This new techniques has certainly proved fast results and unrivalled success”.
