So, what’s athletic symmetry and why should you care? According to experts throughout the athletic world, improving the symmetry in your running and jumping leads to higher levels of performance and less injury.

Jay Dicharry, a running biomechanics expert and author of Anatomy For Runners, explained the benefits of symmetry in a recent Competitor Magazine article. “Running requires mobility, stability, strength, and power. While how much is enough depends on the individual, I strive to have all my athletes within 5 percent in terms of symmetry across the board.”

Are you within 5 percent? At Active Health, we can get you even closer than that. If you need treatment for pain, a physical restriction or a way to improve your performance, our innovative Performance Labs deliver proven results to bring your body back to symmetrical balance. By using 100 LED sensors and two real-time cameras to track your movements, we can help you achieve your physical goals.
