Sports biomechanics is the application of physics and mechanics to the human body during sport in such a technical sport such as swimming, it plays a very important role in elite swimmers preparation and is an important part in maximizing performance.
Functional anatomy of the upper cervical spine the upper cervical spine is the most complex region of the axial skeleton it is composed of the atlanto-occipital and atlantoaxial articulations, which serve as a transition from the skull to the rest of the spine. Sports biomechanics has often been described as having two aims that may be incompatible: the reduction of injury and the improvement of performance (bartlett and bussey, 2011, page xix) biomechanics involves the precise description of human movement and the study of the causes of human movement (knudson, 2007, page 1. To understand the cause of back injuries, the circumstances that induce pain, and the physical management of these lesions, a precise knowledge of the functional anatomy and biomechanics of the vertebral column is required.
Biomechanics and sports performance the performance of a sport is affected by many different factors your biomechanical function has a profound effect on how your movement patterns are controlled and compensated for during the performance of a movement or series of movements.
