Our biomechanical analysis consultation provides runners with advanced gait analysis & musculoskeletal assessment. Whether suffering from long term injury or looking to improve performance this consultation is for you.
Factors such as running technique, footwear choices, muscular weakness, imbalances & reduced joint range of movement can increase mechanical stress & load above levels at which our soft tissues can tolerate, leading to fatigue, reduced performance, eventual breakdown & injury.
Our in-depth, evidence based consultation uses the latest technology in optogait analysis & RS foot scan dynamic pressure analysis to provide a 3 step approach in identifying cause & mechanism of injury, provide custom 3D printed foot orthoses or prescription of running footwear. We also provide everyone with the following
What to wear
As we will be analysing your running and you will be required to run for 20 minutes please bring shorts, t shirt/vest & current running footwea
Our musculoskeletal assessment involves a detailed injury history along with identifying any muscular imbalances, weaknesses or reduced joint range of motion.
Our optogait & high speed (240 fps) run analysis provides run technique feedback & highlights any gait asymmetry or imbalances between right and left sides.
Our advanced dynamic foot pressure & balance analysis identifies foot strike & toe off positions, dynamic centre of pressure, foot contact timings, loading rates & areas of high pressure. We can also identify areas of the foot that are at increased risk of injury & provide dynamic foot orthosis prescription
