This is a super cool episode with Dr. Phil Wagner, a Biomechanics & Digital Health Expert and the Founder & CEO of Sparta Science.
The Sparta Movement Health Platform can analyze broken biomechanical chains in the human body simply by analyzing a foot strike, jump or balance. It can then design a workout program based on feedback from the measurement device. How cool is that?
Impaired movement impacts more people than any other condition, yet most actionable insights lag behind other health barometers. Dr. Phil believes that movement health is the ability to move freely without pain, limitations or uncontrolled movement. The definition is simple to understand. The complex systems that make us move are harder to fathom. So Dr. Phil is using software and data to create awareness.
This episode covers a wide range of topics, not just injuries (but that is covered as well). Dr. Phil shares his perspective on “no pain, no gain” and how we should be focussed on moving better and that we need to decouple the “suffering” from the outcome. Phil also does a great job of explaining what the muscular-skeletal system is and why it is important to understand.
If you’re a movement, fitness, physiology, kinesiology or biomechanics geek, you will love this fun and nerdy conversation about how you interact with the ground with Dr. Phil.
