BIOMECHANICS COACHING20170919_093155

Jason Howard

Jason Howard is a highly experienced Personal Trainer who has undertaken an additional course in biomechanics coaching.

The Intrinsic Biomechanics program is based on the fact that everything in the body is connected. A “tight” muscle in one place can create discomfort in another.

As a Biomechanics Coach I take you through a program to correct your movement. I aim for the simplest route to improved movement as is possible. While some practitioners may give you a shoulder exercise if your shoulder isn’t moving as it should, I follow a system which always starts at the pelvis/hips.

If an exercise for the pelvis/hips corrects the issue in the rest of the body, then thats great. You’ve made progress with the least effort possible. If it doesn’t improve, then I move onto the next step of the program.

An estimated 60% of lower body issues are caused by issues in the pelvis/hips. Because of this I always look to correct any issues there first.

Not focusing on pain, but assessing the body as a whole and correcting movement can quite often result in a reduction of the symptoms.

I have been asked variations on the question of “I’m not injured, can Biomechanics Coaching benefit me?”

The answer is –YES, in fact that is the perfect situation! Here’s why…

Biomechanics Coaching allows you to

MOVE FREELY

REDUCE INJURY RISK

IMPROVE YOUR SPORTS PERFORMANCE – GOLF, RACQUET SPORTS, FIELD SPORTS……
