Buckets of Needs
Thoughts from: Jarred Boyd, PT, DPT, MSAT, SCS, CSCS | Director of Rehab, Memphis Grizzlies
I am sure people have seen various versions of the Venn diagram with organism, task and environment that illustrates how movement is an emergent and dynamically influenced phenomenon – contingent on a confluence of variables over varying time scales.
However, these constraints may also be viewed as the variables that are modifiable which influence load tolerance, capacity (kinetics) and movement expression (kinematics); serving as potential moderators to injury.
While the strategy that emerges during a terminal task is largely predicated off of the task – the available options may be limited (constrained) if various ingredients are not afforded. This is especially true subsequent to injury when residual decrements may manifest as lowered capacity (specifically regarding impulse) during certain activities.
If kinetic underpinnings are not prioritized this may be a bottleneck in the athletes success, potentially increasing susceptibility of instantaneous stress/strain exceeding loads. Adaptations of the components that facilitate magnitude and rate of force production to reverse the downward acceleration of center of mass, deceleration of momentum (mass x velocity), requiring high impulse (force x time) is an essential bucket.
