For patients who have recently undergone surgery or due to go in, Isokinetic testing can be the best way to focus on the area and measure muscle imbalance.
Although the assessment may not be suitable for everyone, it comes in very useful to measure muscle and joint capability.
The usual purpose of isokinetic testing is to assess muscle function during different intervals of exercise. Patients may receive this testing pre- and post-operatively to gauge surgery results, to measure the complications of joint arthritis or to quantify physical impairments from injury or disease. In turn, this testing may also be used to exercise specific muscle groups for rehabilitation or strength-building.
The assessment relies on a device that examines individual muscle groups, accommodating those with limited movement, but are encouraged to move as much as they can in order to receive the best results, and enabling the physio to devise a rehab program tailored to the patient’s needs.
