Having had over 8 years experience consulting for professional sporting bodies, governments and military we have a wealth of information that we can pass onto you.

Over the last 5 years obesity has been at the forefront of health care and the success of treating this has been very poor. While the obesity problem will continue to grow, neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís will increase significantly.

We have formulated a holistic program that deals with health in the true sense of the word. Our approach to addressing your health concerns consists of a four-pillar system

1. Musculoskeletal Health

This pertains to all joints, bones, nerves and muscles to name a few.

Issues we treat are:

Neck, shoulder, hip and lower back pain, knee and ankle injuries

Sciatica, arthritis, pre and post operative treatment,

Postural correction, ergonomic assessment and advice,

Biomechanical, walking and running analysis and

Neuromuscular re-training, motor control development

Sports injuries, high performance sports development

2. Gastrointestinal Health

This pertains the healthy functioning of the entire gut

Issues we treat are:

IBS, bloating, abdominal discomfort

Fat deposition on the abdomen, digestion

Nutrition that is specific for the individual

3. Hormonal Health

This pertains the healthy functioning of the entire hormonal system

Issues we treat are:

Lack of quality sleep

Fat deposition on the abdomen, digestion

Lack of energy, short fuse, dysautonomia

4. Mental Health

This pertains the healthy functioning of the brain

Issues we treat are:

Protecting the brain against neurodegenerative diseases

Learning to think like a winner

Biomechanics plays a vital part of any treatment program; a good understanding is crucial to being able to get the human body to move correctly. This is the key to long-term movement with the least wear and tear to the body! The manner in which you move (your biomechanics) also determines the health of the viscera (internal organs)

What is Sports Biomechanic

The word 'biomechanics' is derived from the Greek bios meaning life and mekhaniki meaning mechanics, so that biomechanics may said to be the study of the mechanics of life forms. The extent of this subject area is evident in research of plants, insects, reptiles, dinosaurs, birds, fish, whales, elephants, kangaroos.....and humans. In the biomechanics of humans, topics range from the mechanics of bone, tooth, muscle, tendon, ligament, cartilage, skin, prostheses, blood flow, air flow, eye movement, joint movement to whole body movement. In human movement biomechanics, topics include injury, clinical assessment, rehabilitation, ergonomics and sport.

Sports biomechanics uses the scientific methods of mechanics to study the effects of various forces on the sports performer. It is concerned, in particular, with the forces that act on the human neuromusculoskeletal system, velocities, accelerations, torque, momentum, and inertia. It also considers aspects of the behavior of sports implements, footwear and surfaces where these affect athletic performance or injury prevention. Sports biomechanics can be divided up into two sections:

Performance Improvement & Injury Prevention

With the help of Quintic, we aim to provide answers to performance related topics such as:

  • What is the best run-up for a high jumper?
  • How should they knee angle be modified for the delivery stride of a fast bowler in cricket?
  • What is the velocity of the swimmer after the tumble turn?

These questions are of the form: What is done? How is it done? Why does it work? The answers to What? How? and Why? are important to theathlete.

Treating injuries from, neck, shoulder, upper and lower back, hip, knee and foot pain as well as many others. The gastrointestinal system is also addressed as well as fat loss, exercise for diabetics and obese individuals as well as hormonal health.

The Biomechanical Analysis can serve either as purely a performance indicator after injury or surgery or often it is used in conjunction with our treatment and rehabilitation to ensure that there is a compete recovery from injury and a reduction in risk of further injury due to poor/inefficient technique.
