Video capture technology is the most effective way for our clinical staff to take an in depth look at any movement and determine its effectiveness and safety. For instance, current research shows examining the position of the elbow when pitching a baseball is the number one way to determine if the pitcher has an increased likelihood of developing shoulder impingement. Shoulder impingement is a condition in which the rotator cuff is compressed and over time can be torn. A rotator cuff tear typically requires surgery and can spell the end of a promising young career. Utilizing the Medical Motion video capture system, our staff can correct the throwing motion and prevent the impingement and future damage to the rotator cuff.
This same technology can be used to analyze a golf swing, tennis serve, running stride or practically any athletic maneuver. The analysis can be used to increase power, endurance, and efficiency, as well as decrease the risk of injury or re-injury. The Vereen Center is proud to offer this technology.
