The running assessment involves a video analysis to identify biomechanical causes contributing to recurrent injuries and specific running exercises and drills to improve running technique, strength, power, running speed or endurance.
This can assist with both performance and reduce injury risk.
A full comprehensive biomechanical assessment will be conducted including, video gait analysis and all weight bearing and non-weight bearing pre-injury screening assessments. This gives the podiatrist the most in-depth data with regards to your full body composition/abnormalities and ultimately helps to provide the most accurate analysis which leads to a more accurate diagnosis.
With regards to pre-injury screening, with more data collected and assessment of the full body make-up and functioning, area’s of weakness can be obtained and highlighted prior to injury occurs and ultimately programs can be set in place to target these areas and bring them in line prior to injury.
