Running Assessments At The Movement Centre
Remaining injury-free is a feat only a small percentage of runners can achieve throughout their life. Here at The Movement Centre we aim to optimise your running technique via running assessments so you can run more efficiently and effectively, giving you the best chance of staying uninjured throughout your running career.
Whether you are training for a specific event, or resuming running following an injury, assessment of your gait and application of strategies to improve your technique will assist you in achieving sustainable movement patterns over the long term.
What does a running assessment involve?
A podiatry running assessment analyses the movement and alignment of each segment of your body to understand your individual movement pattern. Through this we can identify additional factors that may be contributing to your foot pain, leg injury or impaired performance. An assessment with your podiatrist will likely involve the following:
- Alignment of the foot, ankle, knee and leg
- Walking and running gait analysis
- Joint flexibility/ joint hypermobility screening
- Foot and leg muscle strength/ stability testing
From the running assessment, our podiatrists are able tailor a management plan and assure you’re running efficiently and pain free, usually with very simple modifications to your running technique.
What will you get out of a running assessment?
- Increase running efficiency
- Reduced likelihood of sustaining injuries
- Treatment plan to manage those constant niggles and pains
- Learn which drills, exercises and stretches will help with your running technique
- Advice on which running shoes are best for you
