A running analysis can be very helpful whether you have an injury or if you would like to know if you are running with optimal technique. It can outline specific biomechanical imbalances you may have and how these may contribute to your injury or efficiency as a runner.
How does it work?
Firstly, one of our Physiotherapists will discuss your running and injury history with you.
Secondly, we will video you running on the treadmill. From observing you in real time and also through slow motion in the recording, we will explain what ideal running form is and how your technique compares.
Thirdly, if we find specific imbalances we will perform a biomechanical assessment to test these areas and give you an explanation as to how these impact your body during running.
From this information we will create a specific and focused treatment plan that will work to correct your imbalances and help you become a better runner.
Who will conduct the analysis?
Your running analysis appointment will be made with either Ni'ia Jones, Kate Dyball or Naomi Fyffe.
All three practitioners are keen runners and between them have covered distances from competing in 800m on track all the way up to half marathons, full marathons and ultra-marathon distances.
What is the duration and cost of the analysis?
Duration: 1 hour
Please wear comfortable exercise clothing, including your running shoes. Changing facilities are available in the clinic.
Can this be claimed on private health insurance?
This can be claimed on your private health insurance if you have physiotherapy cover. Please bring your private health insurance card so that we can process your claim on the spot.
