If you get pain while you run or after you run or if you would like to prevent running injuries a biomechanical analysis of running is a good starting point.
Why do a running analysis
- Identify problems before they become injuries
- Sort out pain caused by running
- Increase running efficiency
- Identify compensatory patterns that have developed as a result of weakness or imbalance
- If you are keen to build running load and speed particularly if you are thinking about entering an event, get yourself in for a video analysis. You might be surprised at what you find!
What is involved in a running analysis
- A comprehensive medical history of your injury if you have one, riding style, mileage, changes to training or equipment, goals you want to achieve
- Measurement of your body’s anthropometry, flexibility and core stability
- Video analysis on treadmill to analyse current running technique
- Recommendations to change running technique to improve running efficiency, this is videoed to see how you feel with the changes
- Report which indicates any modifications you should make to the bike, recommendations of stretches, strengthening or motor control exercises to help with your current injury or to prevent an injury
- Follow up video analysis on treadmill
- Subsequent running analysis is highly recommended
- Once the assessment has been completed, if there is a recommendation for developing your running technique as part of your injury management and injury prevention program, sessions will be planned out and organised.
