Motion analysis helps soccer players get their kicks
Date:7/9/2009

the dynamics of kicking, our hopes are to help soccer players reduce their injury risk and to assess the impact of a specific injury on a player's return to play," said Riley J. Williams, M.D., senior author and orthopedic surgeon in the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service at Hospital for Special Surgery. "By understanding the mechanics of a soccer kick, the long term goal would be to recommend small changes in training, coaching or strengthening that could protect both female and male athletes from the most common injuries," continued Dr. Williams, who is also the head team physician for the New York Red Bulls soccer club.

For the most part, Hospital for Special Surgery uses motion analysis in a clinical setting to analyze children who don't walk normally. Clinicians and doctors identify, before surgery, which muscle is pulling a joint. The analysis allows the doctors to look closely at where motions are coming from so the surgical plan is strategic.

But as motion analysis technology has improved, Hospital for Special Surgery researchers say motion analysis can now be used to look at and analyze faster and more complex movements like the soccer kick.
