Running Assessment

Running Assessment

Unfortunately, despite the many health benefits, runners are prone to running related injuries, we offer a comprehensive running assessment that aims to highlight any potential issues that can be contributing to an individual’s running related injury or discomfort. Subsequently, we will then provide a structured plan that aims to overcome these issues.

Our running assessment includes a detailed history runthrough, a thorough functional assessment including strength, flexibility, alignment, range of motion, control, work capacity and balance tests will be conducted, where any anomalies that we feel could be potentially contributing towards a runner’s problems will be highlighted.

We will then film your running gait analysis on the treadmill, which will then be slowed down and studied.
Following your thorough assessment, data is collated and if appropriate, training advice, exercises, verbal gait cues and running specific drills can be prescribed to help address these problems.
