Our practitioners will perform an in-depth evaluation of your running stance and take the time to explain the effect it could be having on your health and performance.
One of our highly experienced physiotherapists will film you running on either a treadmill or outside, using various angles to consider all aspects of your running style. Following this, they will analyse the videos, allowing them to determine any problem areas.
Amongst other aspects, problem areas may relate to foot position, posture, core stability or hip and knee control. If necessary, our physiotherapist will provide you with a program of exercises, stretches or running drills to avoid injury whilst you train.
Our practitioners will carry out a physical assessment alongside your gait analysis, in order to consider any issues relevant to your running style. During your physical assessment, they will consider your posture, flexibility, muscle strength and foot and lower limb alignment.
As you work on areas of flexibility, strength and technique you may need support in order to continue with dynamic strengthening and stretching exercises, and to consolidate your new techniques.
You may require a follow-up assessment to progress your exercises and ensure ongoing strength and conditioning. You may also need physiotherapy treatment in order to enable you to achieve your goals pain-free. The physiotherapist will indicate this in your initial appointment.
