Orthopedic Doctors Say Human Performance Optimization Increases Stamina & Reduces Injuries, Honolulu, Hawaii

Whether you’re a professional sports athlete or a marathon runner, constant training can wreak havoc on the body. From muscle cramps, strained ligaments, and even more serious injuries like ACL tears, Honolulu’s leading orthopedic doctors at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health say the human body can only sustain so much high-intensity training before it begins to succumb to injuries. However, with performance optimization training, athletes can improve physical resilience and decrease injuries, allowing them to achieve greater results.

Performance optimization training entails thoroughly monitoring and examining the way an athlete trains. Using the latest cutting-edge technology available in the orthopedic and sports medicine industries, sports trainers and orthopedic doctors are able to better understand how an athlete uses their energy. Performance optimization testing measures an athlete’s heart rate, energy system capacity, autonomic nervous system balance, sensorimotor ability, brain wave patterns, and neuromuscular potential, including their speed and power abilities. After compiling this data, specific adjustments are then made to an athlete’s workout regimen, allowing them to train less but still achieve significant results.

The sole purpose of performance optimization testing, apart from reducing the amount of training an athlete does, it to help prevent the occurrence of injuries. In addition to athletics, performance optimization training has been used to help military troops increase their readiness, stamina, and physical abilities during combat. It also helps doctors better understand how military personnel perform under significant stress and in dangerous situations while on the field.

While human performance optimization testing is still developing, orthopedic doctors say it poses significant benefits and is proving to be an excellent method for reducing injuries and increasing stamina in athletes and military troops.
