Runner’s Strength Class:
Sport ProgramsWhether you’ve had running injuries in the past or would like to start running again and spend some time working on prevention of injuries, this class is for you. Those doing trail-running will find this class especially helpful. We will address all the problems runners normally experience by working on strength, biomechanical alignment and flexibility exercises each session. Common injuries encountered by runners that will be addressed by exercises are: plantar fasciitis, Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), shin splints (medial tibial stress syndrome), Achilles tendonitis, Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS), ankle sprains, piriformis syndrome, low back pain and compartment syndrome.

ACL Prevention Program

Knee injuries are extremely common is sports. Damage to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is serious, may require surgery or may end a career. ACL injury has an annual incidence of more than 200,000 cases, with about 100,000 of these requiring surgery each year. In fact, ACL injuries account for more than 30 per cent of all sports-related surgery.
The majority of ACL injuries occur while playing agility sports and the most frequently reported sports are basketball, soccer, skiing, and football.
THE FACTS:
• Of the 4 ligaments in the knee, the ACL alone is responsible for 80% of the stability in the joint.
• Females are 3–9 times more likely to tear their ACL than males involved in the same sport.
• Just over 70 per cent of all ACL injuries occur from non-contact events, while the remaining 30 per cent result from direct contact.
• ACL injury prevention programs have been shown to decrease ACL injury rates up to 90%.

• Once an ACL injury occurs, the knee has about a 95-98% chance of developing osteoarthritis much earlier in life compared to those who never have an ACL injury – regardless whether surgery is performed or not.

However, there are steps you can take to reduce the risk.

West Coast Kinesiology’s ACL Prevention Program exercises train the neuromuscular system to help keep the knee in proper alignment and to strengthen the muscles around the joint to keep it safe and strong. Certain common conditioning exercises can put the leg at risk, especially if done with poor technique – but our sessions teach what exercises to do and which ones to avoid.

The program is available for teams as well as individual athletes. Please contact us for more information.

Functional Movement Screen
FMS is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality in individuals with no current pain complaint or known musculoskeletal injury.

These movement patterns are designed to provide observable performance of basic locomotor, manipulative and stabilizing movements by placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility and motor control is not utilized. The screen is often used by athletes as a basic assessment for faulty movement patterns that may lead to injury, but it can be also used by the general public as well.

Golf Fit Program

Whether you are a recreational or serious golfer, most of us experience lower back or hip pain at some point in time.  Other common golfing injuries can include golfers elbow or shoulder tendonitis and pain.

Our team will assess how your body moves and find out where you are stiff and where you are too mobile.

Many golfers are very restricted and stiff in the thoracic spine, or ribcage area of the spine.  This puts additional stress on the lower back and hips.  As a result, this is often one of the main causes of lower back pain and hip pain with golf.
