Improve your running technique and reduce injury

 

  

Are you a keen runner, or are you just starting out? Running is a fun and flexible sport that provides an excellent cardio workout while also toning muscles. From casual runners to professional athletes, everyone can benefit from some guidance when it comes to running technique.

Our Running Assessment Session is a tailored service for runners who would like to have their running stride assessed. In this one hour consult we will look at your running and injury history and assess your body through a series of physio tests. Session are designed to give you expert advice and ideas to enhance your technique and also discuss possible causes of loading issues you may be experiencing.

During your session we will also use video to analyse your movement from a number of different angles. State-of-the-art technology gives us the opportunity to look at your stride in both fast motion and slow motion, which we can then play back to you to demonstrate our findings.
