Preventing Injuries off the Block

NeuroCom Balance Solutions can play a vital role in preventing injury as well. Balance, after all, is also an important indicator of ankle, knee and hip instability. If a player loses balance under certain assessment conditions – as compared to normative or baseline data – it could indicate orthopedic limitations or pain.

Create baseline assessments: Establish a reliable baseline of athletes’ balance functionality in order create an invaluable database for measuring injury impact.

Assess knee stability: Use the Weight Bearing Squat protocol to assess knee stability throughout the full functional range of motion and identify otherwise unseen compensations that may lead to overuse injuries.

Identify areas of ankle instability in weight-bearing positions, thanks to the Limits of Stability protocol which measures “off the block” reaction time, speed and accuracy of movement.

Create specific speed drills and weight bearing activities that strengthen areas of ankle, knee, or hip instability.
