What is a Biomechanical Running Assessment?
A biomechanical running assessment involves filming your running technique with a high speed digital camera and analysed in slow-motion to allow our expert physiotherapists to highlight biomechanical errors and in-efficiencies in your running gait. In addition to this our physiotherapists will perform a functional movement analysis; this is a series of movements that highlight mechanical faults that often cause running injuries. From this information we will develop a bespoke rehabilitation program including strength and conditioning, mobility, running cues and running drills. In addition to this we will send you copy of your video to help review your progress and see where you can improve your movement.
