Running Gait Analysis

Whether you’re new to running or an experienced runner, having a running gait analysis can help:

  • Reduce injury risk
  • Aid return to running from injury
  • Improve running technique and efficiency
  • Improve running times!

The running gait analysis takes place in clinic on a treadmill. Your running is recorded and then analysed to identify areas to work on. It also involves a full assessment looking at lower limb joint mobility and identifying any muscular weakness or tightness. From this, depending on what is found, a plan is formulated with yourself aimed at improving running technique, strength or joint flexibility. The aim is always to get you back running in a safe way and to keep you running.

As a keen runner himself, David understands the frustrations of injury and being unable to run. He has worked with many runners and running clubs to help them get back to running and improve overall performance.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is targeted deep tissue massage which uses varying pressures, often focused on problem areas which will be determined by the individual physical and biomechanical needs of the client.  Anyone can enjoy the benefits of a sports massage whether athlete or not.

A sports massage is not necessarily a soothing, spa-like, experience but the benefits are many:

  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Improved flexibility
  • Boosted circulation & lymphatic drainage
  • Relaxation
  • Enhanced recovery

You can choose to have a sports massage on an adhoc basis but many choose to incorporate a regular massage into their routine.  There is no right or wrong, just personal preference.
