Kinetic Chain Assessment

injury prevention, recovery and performance enhancement

FROGS Physical Therapy specializes in kinetic chain assessment – a kinetic chain is the notion that joints and segments have an effect on one another during movement. When one is in motion, it creates a chain of events that affects the movement of neighboring joints and segments. We use kinetic chain exercises to help with injury prevention and recovery, body sculpting, and performance enhancement.

The Benefits of Kinetic Chain Exercises

The biggest advantage of kinetic chain exercises is that they isolate a muscle. This can be useful when rehabilitating a specific muscle or when training for a sport that requires the use of open chain activities – throwing a ball, for instance. FROGS Physical Therapy uses kinetic chain exercises for use in pain management, injury, post-surgical care and athletic training.
