Sports Movement Analysis

An injury to an athlete can be devastating to their body and their career, but with the new movement analysis equipment available at UnityPoint Health - Des Moines Outpatient Therapy West, injuries don't have to be career-ending.

Specifically-trained clinicians use video equipment to capture an athlete's movement and then evaluate the video frame by frame. They are able to measure joint angles and use an electronic chalkboard to provide detailed feedback to an athlete.

This new technology allows the athlete to immediately see the problem and understand the importance of correcting it, leading to a quicker, more successful return to competition and reducing their risk of future injuries.
