Biomechanics uses the concepts of force and mechanics to understand and expand the structure and function of biological systems.  This is often used in sports or exercise science as a way to train or maximize performance.  For this thread, select a favorite sport and discuss how biomechanics impacts the game.  Answer the following questions:

 

  • How can biomechanics be used to maximize performance in this sport?

  • What forces are at play in this sport that biomechanics are working against?

  • List at least two injuries that are most common in this sport.  Can you relate these injuries to biomechanics?

  • Based on your research, what recommendations do you have for people that play this sport?
