Various musculoskeletal conditions and injuries can be prevented. Such injuries are often times the result of muscle imbalances. Detection and subsequent correction of these muscle imbalances can significantly reduce potential injury. Regardless of your activity level, a thorough musculoskeletal evaluation is vital to enhance your performance and avoid injury. For example, the most sedentary individuals are prone to musculoskeletal pain due to prolonged sustained postures, which causes certain muscles to become shortened and/or weakened.
