Tennis biomechanics analysis (Racquetfit)
Dr. Daigneault, podiatrist, is Racquetfit certified. This certification allows him to analyze the range of motion of different joints of the tennis player’s lower limb. The goal is to detect if a mobility or stability problem in a joint can decrease the efficiency of his serve and thus have a negative impact on the quality of his game. Olivier is currently ranked 25th USTA in the National Father- His.
