running clinic and gait analysis

Anyone who has an interest in maintaining their fitness from the casual jogger to the high performance athlete can greatly benefit from the Video Running Analysis assessment.

Running Analysis – Biomechanical Running Assessment

A running biomechanical analysis can very useful whether you have sustained a recent injury, to get to the roots of recurring pain or injuries or would like to improve your running technique and optimise your performance.

All normal movement relies on a finely tuned balance of muscle activation and control. If muscles are incorrectly recruited and/or at the wrong time this can place undue stress on the joints, ligaments and neural tissue and pain and injury will follow. As anyone who tries to keep fit knows, this can then severely limit the ability to train and ultimately reduce performance.

What does a Biomechanical Running Analysis involve ?

We will first discuss your running history, injuries and what you would like to achieve.

This will be followed by a thorough assessment of your posture, range of motion, strength and muscle imbalance

We will then get you onto the treadmill and we will assess your running technique. The use of the 2-dimensional video running analysis and the observation of the recording frame by frame and through slow motion will help identify biomechanical causes, compensations and running technique flaws contributing to your pain or injuries or under-performance.

We will than explain the results and give you advice on an exercise program to correct issues observed.
