Mental performance evaluation is an interdisciplinary science and the Mental Performance Consultant at our Ottawa clinics is an expert in many related fields, including biomechanics, physiology, kinesiology and psychology. Mental performance evaluation looks at how psychological elements are affecting physical performance. It can also look at how participating in sports can affect a person psychologically. The study can help athletes recover from injury or accidents as well as improve overall performance by removing or alleviating any psychological barriers.
