Oh, Hai! I'm Nikita, the resident certified Human Biomechanics Specialist at Boise Biomechanics. Our training sessions are designed specifically for you based on a gait analysis procured on your first day. To ensure that our time together is efficient, I keep a structured layout to each of our workouts. It generally plays out like this:
In the first few minutes of our session we will take a look at the body and see where there might be some kinks in your chain and hydrate those areas as well as begin breaking up old scar tissue and adhesions to eventually move more fluidly with ease.
Then we will spend time teaching you how to increase the volume of air you breath in by decompressing your ribcage. This helps improve the quality of your training moving forward.
Many people forget the importance of structure when working out and it always leads to injuries down the road. To prevent this, we work on your posture every day getting you familiar with how to carry yourself through space and orient your body to itself and your surroundings.
Next, we move on to correcting the loudest and most prominent imbalances causing poor mechanics leading to injuries and your pain. You'll learn to stand with proper alignment and compensate less when it's time to move.
Now we begin to work on the integration of tensions that connect the whole body for movements like walking, running, and throwing.
Here we get to work on your whole body's execution of certain natural movements the body has to make day to day or in sports. The real, three dimensional movements come in to play here and the body starts to connect what it means to go in and out of neutral postures.
We will take a second look at your gait cycle and identify movements that caused pain before.
