Rider Biomechanics Assessments are designed to evaluate you as a rider, identifying areas of tightness, weakness, instability or asymmetry which may be limiting your effectiveness in the saddle. As a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist within the Human field, Karris has an in-depth understanding of how your anatomy and biomechanical movement patterns can contribute to your ridden performance. Karris has also completed specific Rider Biomechanics training with Andy Thomas, Rider Physiotherapist for Team GB & Team USA.
Assessments are completed both on the ground and whilst on board your horse/pony, with video footage taken to allow you to see the areas that require improvement. Treatment is completed on the day and a personalised exercise programme developed for you to continue after the session. Riders are encouraged to ride again after treatment to allow further comparative video footage to be taken, and to provide you with the opportunity to feel how the treatment has improved your ridden capabilities.
