Sports biomechanics is a quantitative based study and analysis of professional athletes and sports' activities in general.[1] It can simply be described as the Physics of Sports. In this subfield of biomechanics the laws of mechanics are applied in order to gain a greater understanding of athletic performance through mathematical modeling, computer simulation and measurement.

Biomechanics is often used with the following sports to make athletes more competitive and effective:

  • Golf swing
  • Tennis
  • Gymnastics
  • Track and field
  • Running blades
  • Swimming
  • Diving
  • Skiing
  • Trampoline
  • Rowing
  • Baseball
  • Figure Skating
  • Exergaming design and evaluation
  • Movement Assessment

As an established science with application to sports, Dr. Nelson makes full use of this productive method in the ehnancement of patients to obtain full range of motion, performance and satisfaction in their sport.

Dr. Santos,
Thank you so much for keeping me healthy! You have the magic. Thanks again!
