Running Assessment

running assessment

At Fairfield Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Centre, one of the specialised services we offer is a personalised assessment of your walking or running pattern.

Poor walking or running gait can result in pain and injuries to your knee, foot, hip or back. An inefficient running pattern also causes issues when you start to run as unnecessary stress is placed on your joints and muscles. If your joints are stiff or your muscles are weak your body has to find ways of compensating for the problem. Poor running technique can lead to biomechanical abnormalities which can cause common injuries such as Shin splints, Plantar fasciitis, knee pain, lower back pain and tendonitis.

Your running evaluation will provide you with important tips on how to develop and maintain healthy running form and habits.
