Injury Prevention Screening
Why have MaxSC perform your screening?
Much more specific than the functional movement screen, our injury screening accounts for sport, age, goals, past injury history, kinesthetic awareness and even position.
Why get your screening today?
Today, the rigors of youth athletics and club sports has put a much higher demand on our athletes and we are seeing the results of this through a record number of injuries. At MaxSC we stress the importance of durability and staying healthy throughout your competitive season and have instituted a program called Athletic Injury Screening.
Importance of Injury Prevention
Injury prevention is an effort to prevent or reduce the severity of bodily injuries caused by external mechanisms, such as accidents, before they occur. Injury prevention is a component of safety and public health, and its goal is to improve the health of the population by preventing injuries and hence improving quality of life.
Did you know there are specific risk factors for many sports-related injuries? MaxSC looks for the following during your screen:
- Core stability
- Dysfunctional motor patterns leading to compensations
- Connective tissue of the pelvo/hip complex
- Muscular imbalances
- Unilateral and bilateral balance
- Stability of the five major joints (ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow)
Organizations and club teams to prevent these injuries by offering screens at a discounted rate for their athletes.
