Analysis & Performance

TENNIS ANALYSIS

& Performance-based system

FOREHAND

Assessing the body's ability to allow the proper joint motion for an effective forehand. I look at specific joint thresholds at the ankles, hips, thoracic spine and entire kinetic chain in a flexion loading pattern to the openside. 

SERVE

Assessing the body's ability to allow the proper joint motion for an effective serve. We look at specific joint thresholds at the ankles, hips, thoracic spine and entire kinetic chain in an extension loading pattern. 

BACKHAND

Assessing the body's ability to allow the proper joint motion for an effective backhand. I look at specific joint thresholds at the ankles, hips, thoracic spine and entire kinetic chain in a flexion loading pattern to the closed side.

Are you experiencing pain or discomfort when playing tennis? Do you want to improve your efficiency and performance?

Assess your functional threshold for tennis, enhance your three-dimensional joint capacity, improve performance, and reduce the likelihood of injury. 

Through analysis, I will identify threshold limitations throughout the KINETIC chain specific to tennis biomechanics. Reducing pain and symptoms, restoring normal function, and improving your efficiency.

TENNIS INJURIES

Movement Rehabilitation Performance

Tennis is a popular way to improve fitness and stay in shape. Although tennis is a great way to stay active, many players must deal with an injury at some point. While sudden injuries like a sprained ankle or a torn muscle can happen, a high percentage of tennis injuries are caused by repetitive stress and poor biomechanics.

Don’t ignore your pain!

I think of pain as an indicator, like the oil or service light on your dashboard. It lets us know that there is a possible issue, a disruption in the body’s normal functional biomechanics, and can be down to a whole scope of reasons. The issue is that pain is often ignored, and we need to appreciate that pain alters our normal movement, it is the protective nature of how the body functions. This often leads to compensations, altered biomechanics, and often compounds the strain or stress at a particular part of the body.


SYMPTOM COMPENSATION CAUSE

Getting to the cause

Traditional or conventional treatment and rehabilitation exercises are aimed at improving symptoms and may provide temporary relief or improvement but often they do not always get to the root cause. My skills and expertise move away from these types of models and I aim to develop strategies and injury plans that go beyond merely treating physical symptoms and compensations but actively addresses the influences (causes) that resulted in the condition.

Functional rehabilitation is aimed at restoring normal function.

Tennis Specific Analysis & Performance Training FOR ALL AGES AND LEVELS

YOU IN MOTION

Analyse your entire three-dimensional spectrum of movement and get access to a functional and robust performance system for ongoing enhancement.

With no equipment needed, we can address real-life function, assess your range of motion and control of motion throughout the body. 

Utilising six vital transformational zones helps us to assess the motions in all the main joint complexes for all types of functional activities. 

It's the most comprehensive movement assessment for functional, sport-specific, and performance-based activities. 

Form Follows Function 

Technique-driven coaching and constant cueing can lead to what is often referred to as "Paralysis by Analysis". I work with coaches and athletes to give them an understanding of why proper function (biomechanics) should precede technique or form. I explain why it's more beneficial and show how to tap into the neural system (proprioceptors) by creating authentic task driven movements for improved subconscious reactions, specific to the functional task or sport.
