Running assessments can be carried out at the clinic on our treadmill, or outdoors on the road or track. Our chartered physiotherapist have years of experience working with runners from complete novices to elite athletes. They are experts in biomechanical assessments and will look at your running technique whist using industry leading sensor technology ‘Vi Move’ to provide the most accurate data possible. Our Vimove sensors will provide information on your running technique that cannot be assessed visually, such as symmetry, cadence, ground reaction force and ground contact time.
The results from your running assessment will detect biomechanical faults that could be increasing your chances of sustaining an injury. Our therapists will be able to advise you on the best ways to improve your technique and become a more efficient runner, hence reducing your chances of sustaining future running related injuries.
Advanced Biomechanical Screening
For those requiring a more detailed running assessment, our advanced Biomechanical screening gives you the opportunity to have a combined session with both a physiotherapist and a podiatrist. This unique assessment is invaluable for injury prevention and performance enhancement.
During this 90 minute appointment, our experts will assess you individually AND carry out a joint running assessment using the latest technology for accurate assessment and analysis of your gait pattern and biomechanics. With this data, our run specialists will advise you on your running technique, prescribe exercises and give you footwear advice.
