What is the study of biomechanics? What type of setting is the most useful in biomechanical studies? What is the goal of biomechanics? What is the connection between studying the biomechanical field and teaching physical activity?
The study of biomechanics is when the laws of physics and movement are applied to human movement. Here is a good definition: http://weighttraining.about.com/od/glossaryofweighttraining/g/Biomechanics.htm
Biomechanics applies to sport in that one can apply this knowledge to explain how muscles, bones, and joints react under different conditions and how to improve performance based upon these outcomes. For instance, here is a great link to the biomechanics of swimming: ...
This solution explains the study of biomechanics, outlines the type of setting most useful in biomechanical studies, and the goal of biomechanics. In addition it discusses if there is a connection between studying biomechanics and teaching physical activity. It includes links and examples.
LBP and core strengthening
I learned from past reading about the anatomy of the spine. Low back pain is a common ailment experienced by the population as a whole and specifically with the athletic population. Core strengthening is commonly recommended as a treatment and/or prevention method for low back pain. Please read the article entitled, "Hip muscle imbalance and low back pain in athletes: influence of core strengthening."
1. After reading this article, do you think we as human movement professionals are justified in prescribing core strengthening exercises for the prevention and/or treatment of low back pain? What do you think can be effective to apply in my professional practice as a personal trainer. I need another take on this article.
2. How do men and women differ in regards to low back pain? Why the difference?
3. I also need help to track down other articles that either support or don't support core strengthening for low back pain (at least 3, if possible). Thanks.View Full Posting Details
