Run Technique Analysis
Improve your running
Our specialist Physiotherapists have designed a run-technique-analysis assessment and programme to improve your running ease and performance.
How does it work?
In your 60-minute assessment, our specialists use video analysis to assess your running style and start teaching you essential improvements to your style that will benefit your body. Following this, our experts create a customised running programme to enhance your running style and comfort – plus a rehab programme to improve any weaknesses or limitations highlighted in your assessment.
Why do it?
Running technique training can be used to improve your efficiency and speed – while also reducing your risk of injury. For every stride you take your ankle, knee and hip absorb roughly 2.5 to 3 times your bodyweight. And if you have poor technique, these figures could easily increase further, which can then cause overload of your soft tissue.
On the other hand, if you have a technique that’s fluid and light you can not only reduce the risk of injury, but also improve your performance.
How do I improve my technique?
After your technique has been properly assessed, there are a number of things that can be done to make you more efficient.
- running specific drills
- taking cues while doing intervals on a treadmill
- mobility exercises
- strengthening exercises
These can all be effective – but should all be done with a coach, as trying to improve your technique independently without feedback could lead you to further issues.
