Building a better foundation. Whether you are a circus performer, a gymnast, a yoga practitioner, an Olympic lifter, a X-Fit athlete, or any form of athlete engaged in the rigours of intense training and sports specialization, it is important to understand the consequences that injury to an athlete’s connective tissue support system will have on their potential for coordinated, pain free proprioceptively aware movement. When a structural dysfunction resulting from an injury like a fall or a strong impact with an external body or a wrong move is not recognized, its impact on the body will have life long repercussions. This dysfunction to the athlete’s support system will continue to interact negatively with all future athletic movements, creating a series of performance limiting compensations that will ultimately compromise the athlete’s likelihood for success. It is a priority to screen/assess the client for dysfunction/asymmetries and then rapidly restore balance in the athlete’s support system to avoid further structural dysfunction, dysfunction that will be exacerbated through the continued efforts of training and competition.
