RUNNING ASSESSMENTS

Running is one of the most popular forms of exercise out there. It requires little professional equipment and is free to do! There are now reported to be over 2 million people in the UK running at least once a week.

 

If you are a runner, whether you are just starting out or already a seasoned marathon runner, you should visit our physiotherapy clinic in Radcliffe on Trent for a running assessment.

 

Our running assessments can advise you on the best ways to maintain an efficient and injury-free running career. 

Prevent Injuries With a Running

Assessment

Many runners today recognize the stressful affects the sport can have

on their bodies. Runners look for ways to minimize their risk of

injuries as much as they look for ways to improve their performance. 

 

A few of the injuries runners may suffer from include:

  • Achilles tendinitis or rupture

  • Ankle sprains

  • Blisters

  • Iliotibial band syndrome (IT Band Syndrome)

  • Patellar tendinitis

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Shin splints

  • Strained muscles

  • Stress fractures

 

Running assessments have become more popular today amongst runners. They recognize that staying fit and healthy whilst running goes above and beyond the gear used. The technique of running is not art at all, but instead mostly science. The assessment of joint alignment, body mechanics, muscle strength, and more go into the objectivity of injury prevention for runners.

The results of a running assessment can help prevent a major injury. If you are already injured, don’t sweat it, as rehabilitation coupled with a running assessment can not only help you return to the sport, but in fact in may even prevent future injuries.

Is a Running Assessment Right For You?

 

If you are a runner either looking to enhance your performance, prevent an injury, or are injured, it is recommended you complete a running assessment. 

 

At Peak Wellbeing Physiotherapy, our therapists are the experts in understanding human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics.

If you are injured, we highly recommend getting treatment from a physiotherapist so that we can rehabilitate you back to running safely. 

What Can I Expect at a Running Assessment?

 

Your Peak Wellbeing running assessment will incorporate a full review of your sporting history, including any previous/current injuries as well as your goals.

 

It centres around a comprehensive musculoskeletal assessment that helps identify key areas of tissue or joint restriction, weakness and muscle imbalances that can adversely affect running form and performance. Your gait is then recorded on a treadmill and analysed with video analysis.

 

The outcome of the assessment will allow us to determine the best corrective exercises and advice for you.
