Precision Movement 

 

If you do something with precision, you do it exactly as it should be done

When performing any movement, one of the aims is to first obtain and then preserve precise alignment of the structures involved in achieving the action. This ensures that the optimal accuracy of movement is maintained throughout. The importance of this is that it maximises functional efficacy and the quality biomechanics of the overall movement system. 

 

From the perspectives of rehabilitation and performance, sustaining the optimum positions throughout all movement is essential. It is the most successful way of engineering maximal output whilst maintaining safety. Conversely, misalignment is a significant contributor towards all accumulation or non trauma related injuries as well as having a considerable influence over limitations to physical achievement. This is caused by incorrect force loading and transference through the structures that can irritate and damage the tissues. In both situations restoring or maintaining ideal movement systems demands conscious focus through any action or activity.

 

Once the ideal available anatomical alignment has been established then part of gaining the rewards through exercise is the challenge of maintaining this alignment, and any necessary adaptations, through stabilising and dynamic movements. As the neurological system activates the muscular tissue to generate movement, the optimally arranged skeleton enables the required balance between muscle systems that will then produce effective and efficient action. As mentioned previously, repeated or sustained suboptimal movement patterns on an unstable can lead to injury. However exercise on an unstable base or physical derangements can also fortify these disorganised arrangements, making them progressively worsen over time. 

In maintaining optimally placed alignments throughout challenging exercises we prevent any unwanted movements.  These unwanted movements can result in positional changes that should be avoided in order to prevent uncontrolled or excessive movement, stress or load that can cause damage and injury. Learning how to balance the muscle tissue through corrected activation to retain the designated body positioning is essential. In this way we avoid these undesirable and uncontrolled loads and the negative effects.
