COMPLEXIVE KINESIOLOGICAL EXAMINATION

Overloading the single muscle groups, which happens as a result of one-sided focused movement, can result in many sport injuries (for example, problems with meniscus, tearing Achilles tendon, injuring peripheral joints or pain within the musculoskeletal system). The goal of complexive kinesiological examination is defining the possible risks, resulting from the condition of the musculoskeletal system, with consideration about the performed activity. Based on the result of the examination, the physiotherapist recommends preventive measures, which lead to lowering the risks of sport injury and at the same time it compensates the current problems.

The content of the examination is:

  • Inspection (examining the general body posture by sight)
  • Palpation (examining the soft tissues by touch)
  • Examination of basic movement patterns
  • Podology examination (examining the feet on podoscope - transversal +longitudinal arch)
  • Examining the mobility of spine and peripheral joints
  • Examining the stability of deep muscles

For who is this ideal?

Complexive kinesiological examination is ideal for everyone, who is regularly engaging in physical activity. Whether it is unorganized recreational athletes or performance athletes, or organized athletes in sport clubs. Examination gives you detailed information about the condition of your musculoskeletal system, therefore it is very ideal as a supplementing examination to medical fitness examination which is mandatory by law for doing certain physical activity. Given the difference of the content determined by law, it is not usually included.
