The Kinetic Chain

When the kinetic chain is not working smoothly it can lead to anatomical and biomechanical situations that can increase injury risk, perpetuate injury patterns or decrease performance. This is where the biokineticist plays an important role. The biokineticist must be able to identify and rectify these deficits in the kinetic chain as part of the treatment and rehabilitation process.
