Suitable for runners of all experience levels


WHAT IS A RUNNING ASSESSMENT?

A Running Assessment is an effective method of assessing your running technique. Our physiotherapists will conduct a full gait and running style analysis to assess and understand your running biomechanics. This includes your body alignment, muscle length and strength and gait.

From there, we can identify factors you can modify and/or improve to train more effectively and optimise your running performance. We will also develop a programme to improve running technique and help you reach your goals. If required, we will also provide treatments and rehabilitation for any reoccurring injuries you may have.

 

HOW DOES A RUNNING ASSESSMENT HELP?

At Prohealth Sports And Spinal, we believe that a good running style and correct muscle balance will lead to better running performance, faster recovery from injury, and prevention of possible future injuries. Whether you are a recreational runner or an elite athlete of any age, our expert physiotherapists can provide an in-depth analysis to ascertain where your asymmetries are and develop a customised programme to address any biomechanical issues.

Our programme will assist you in planning for your first marathon, or if it’s your dream to spend days running across a desert, we can advise you on how to maintain optimal performance (in terms of running efficiency) and remain injury-free.

These sessions will cover comprehensive discussions on current injuries, advice on common injuries like patellofemoral pain and Achilles tendinopathy, the best treatment approaches, footwear recommendations and a customised running-specific exercise prescription plan that is tailored to your strength, flexibility, alignment and movement capacity.
