Running Performance

Integrated Physiotherapy and Podiatry assessment allows different experts to more accurately assess your foot structure, movement and function so that the underlying movement problems associated with lots of walking and running pain or injury is identified and treated effectively. Whilst it is easy to observe running styles in other people, it is often hard to appreciate how we are moving ourselves. We use high speed video analysis to look, frame by frame, at your walking and running action. We are often able to see really clear reasons for the aches and pains you may have associated with these weight bearing activities.

Think of your body like a machine. Like the moving parts of any machine, they are susceptible to wear and tear eventually but they do so more quickly if they are moving inefficiently. If you can learn to run more optimally, not only do you significantly reduce your risk of getting recurring overuse injuries but you also stand to improve your performance at the same time.

Our patients often report big improvements in their PBs when they return to running after treatment. Many problems in the lower limbs and even in the pelvis and lower back are associated with the way we walk and run. The real skill is in interpreting this information and relating it to your clinical problems. This is not something that we feel you should do with confidence in running shoe shops by people who are not medically trained.
