In a recent video Marc Marquez, world multi-champion of motorcycling, has shown the muscle differences of his shoulder. The great athlete is in fact in rehabilitation and is using this forced lock-down period to better recover from the problems related to his joint.
There are many subjects who are in physiotherapy and need to restore or simply monitor the functions of their shoulder and many of them need to understand the improvements and the results reached after a specific treatment.
In recent years technologies represent a valid answer to these needs. The long term experience of the clinician, of the physiotherapist is in fact supported by innovative technologies that provide more certainties.
There are non-invasive portable systems that in a few minutes can monitor the angular excursion and the activity of the muscles involved in motor tasks such as the shoulder flexion, rotation or abduction.
The expert can thus analyze and monitor the joint condition by investigating its mobility and at the same time evaluating when the muscle is activated. Therefore, on the one hand, there is the possibility of verifying the flexion, rotation, abduction degree achieved by the subject, on the other hand the possibility of investigating how the muscles contribute together to guarantee the movement.
So Marquez, monitor your shoulder and you will understand when to get back on track!
