Biomechanical & Muscle Imbalance issues

 

Muscular imbalance occurs when a muscle becomes stronger or weaker than its opposing muscle. This causes pain, stiffness and a change in posture. For example the quadriceps and hamstring muscles bend and straighten the knee. If one group becomes stronger than the other a pelvic tilt may occur causing a change in posture leading to lower back pain, hip and groin pain. Many conditions are caused by muscular imbalance i.e patellofemoral pain, Achilles tendonitis, patellar tendonitis and lower back pain as mentioned already. Physiotherapy aims to assess where the imbalance lies and correct it through flexibility and strengthening exercise programmes, joint mobilisations, electrotherapy, deep tissue massage and posture education.
