INJURY REDUCTION/PAIN RELIEF

 

PERFORMANCE DEFICIT TEST (PDT™) - INJURY RISK ASSESSMENT FOR SPORTS OR THE WORKPLACE

 

Are you in pain or suffering from stubborn niggles? Is your physical performance not what it can or should be? Have you recently recovered from injury? Are you deciding to start a new exercise class or join a gym? 

 

A large proportion of people who answer yes to these questions will at some point develop joint pain and muscle strains, which in most cases are completely avoidable. It's just that the underlying cause for these issues, or the compensatory effects of a previous injury, has not been identified; which means that these people have to stop exercising, they start to get frustrated and depressed as they are not able to complete the goals they have set themselves.

 

What I do at  PMJ Personal Training & Sports Fitness is to assess everyone using the PDT. The PDT has been developed by Spencer Brown Msc at Peak Performance Centre of Excellence, using his experience and expertise in injury rehabilitation, corrective exercise and strength & conditioning coaching, to develop a tried and tested assessment tool that can help to identify injury risk factors before they become a barrier to exercise; which means that you can get your life back on track, you can continue with your goals and aspirations and return to your chosen activity, job or sport and start leading the life that you deserve.

 

The Performance Deficit Test (PDT)

Its purpose is to highlight your injury risk factors by identifying areas of physical strength, weakness and movement dysfunction. If it is identified that you are at risk of any particular injury I can design a corrective exercise and conditioning plan that will reduce this risk.

 

For the PDT assessment, you will be videoed whilst you carry out three different exercises (squat, lunge & single leg squat).  These exercises involve multi-joint movements that impact on the whole body to show up specific issues and are based on the latest research into human movement. Watching how you perform these exercises and analysing your movement patterns will help to identify any correctable issues.  A training programme can then be developed to help you to modify your movements to correct your weaknesses and avoid future injury.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second part of the PDT involves strength testing of the major lower-extremity muscle groups using manual muscle testing protocols. This gives me information to highlight any muscle asymmetry, inhibition and weakness that could be effecting your body and contributing to your problems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For sportspeople - this helps to improve overall performance, as well as drastically reducing the risk of injury.

For the workplace - this helps reduce the risk injury meaning a reduction in injury-related absences.

 

Other assessments are also performed, these include;

 

  • Anthropometrics

  •  

  • Strength tests

  •  

  • Sports specific performance test
