Running Injury - Image 2

Have you ever wondered what your running technique looks like?

Are you constantly being held back from running by niggling injuries that you cannot resolve with rest?

Are you looking to increase your running distance without burnout?

Are you a first-time runner and are interested in knowing what you need to do outside of running to keep your body in good shape?

Running is one of the simplest forms of exercise that we can do that brings with it many health benefits. It is free and you can do it just about anywhere, with little preparation.

But it is repetitive. The same movement is repeated every step which means that if there are weakness within the body or poor running technique; the same movement over and over can lead to an injury or running fatigue.

Premier Sport’s Running Clinic is for novice and regular runners who:

  • Are suffering from running-related injuries (back or hip pain, knee pain, calf pain, Achilles tendon pain, heel pain).
  • Want to improve their running times/ distance.
  • Want to prevent injuries (both short-term and future wear & tear).
  • Want to run pain-free well into the future.

What do we do at Premier’s Running Clinic?

To help people run injury-free, we have developed a tailored ‘running assessment’. One of the biggest reasons people stop running is due to injury! With a comprehensive ‘running assessment’, we will identify the main reasons as to why you may be getting injured, or what factors may be putting you at a higher injury risk. We will give you personalised advice on how to build your running up and give you professional physiotherapy treatment to reduce your injury risk long-term.

What is involved in a Running & Biomechanical Assessment?

A ‘running assessment’ takes a different approach to a normal physiotherapy consultation, as it will be more tailored to running. You will initially complete a brief questionnaire which will assist your physiotherapist in understanding your running history.

Then you and your running physio will take the time to discuss what has brought you to this point, what injuries you have had along the way and what your goals are (whether you just want to run to keep fit and healthy or run a marathon).

You will then complete a movement assessment to identify the causes of your injury and what may be holding you back from your potential. This includes joint health assessments, functional assessments, and mobility. We also assess strength, and we do this with high-tech equipment to determine the exact amount of force your muscles can produce, and if there is a percentage difference from side to side.

Then it is treadmill time!

We will get you running at a pace that you would usually run a small. You will run for between 5-10 mins, which involves the recording of your running technique using a slow-motion camera for biomechanical analysis.

We can often pinpoint running technique issues quickly and correct them on the spot, resulting in immediate improvements in running efficiency and less force going through the body with each step.

We will then discuss the results and in conjunction with you, tailor a game plan to help you run pain-free and maximise your performance, and make all the necessary steps to build you up to your running goals.
