Emma is a qualified Intrinsic Biomechanics Trainer who can test your alignment and supply corrective exercises to improve your sporting performance, help prevent injuries and nullify reoccurring pain. Intrinsic Biomechanics treats and prevents injuries and pain using a program of simple exercises. Emma can help by using a screening process which finds out what is the functioning ability of your body, by addressing a wide range of issues including:
Knee or shoulder problems
Recovering from injury | surgery
Trouble moving freely
The program’s exercises are tailored to each person’s injuries or ability to move. Once assessed Emma will recommend the best exercises to help improve your mobility and reduce your pain. You perform the exercises every day at home or at work and in just a few weeks you should see a difference in how you feel and your range of movements.
Step 1 | Assess your movement
You complete a questionnaire so your background can be reviewed.
You complete a series of simple assessments. After each one, if correction is required you will be given a corresponding exercise.
You will then need to perform all the exercises every day | this is very important.
Step 2 | Reassess to see how you’ve improvement
After two weeks, you perform the assessments again, depending on your progress, your exercise techniques will be refined.
You will perform these revised techniques daily for two weeks and then return again to check on your progress.
Step 3 | Complete the program and finish
Depending on your progress, step 2 can continue for up to six re-assessments.
Some people complete step 2 after only a couple of re-assessments. The actual length of time depends on the level of injuries or problems and how long you’ve lived with them.
Once you have passed your assessments, you will be given a set of maintenance exercises to keep your body moving freely.
Biomechanics is the study of the structure and function of biological systems such as humans, animals, plants, organs, and cells by means of the methods of mechanics.
So simply speaking how your muscles and bones enable you to move.

There are two types of biomechanics – extrinsic and intrinsic.
Extrinsic biomechanics is the study of how we move when we lift, throw, kick etc.
Intrinsic biomechanics is the study of our body’s ability to perform these movements. In other words, Emma needs to know things such as whether your legs are the same length, whether your hips are working properly, or if your nerves are too stiff?
Intrinsic biomechanics can be affected by your genes or by daily tasks such as sitting at a desk, driving or running in the wrong shoes.
Most importantly, intrinsic biomechanics helps us understand why we experience pain, why we are prone to injury and how we can prevent this. A tailored program of exercises performed everyday, along with the follow-up maintenance exercises, will increase your body’s ability to move without pain.
