Running Injuries Clinic

Whether training for a marathon, your first 10k or you just run for the fun of it; running injuries can be from a niggle to debilitating pain. It’s important to get them checked out and my aim is to get you back running as quickly and safely as possible.  The are different ways I can help including: musculoskeletal screening, gait analysis and manual therapy treatments.

Common injuries treated include:

  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome (runners knee)
  • Plantar heel pain (plantar fasciopathy/fasciitis)
  • Achilles tendon pain
  • Other tendon issues (posterior tibial tendon disorder, patellar tendinopathy)
  • “Shin Splints” (medial tibial stress syndrome, compartment syndrome)
  • Hip injuries (gluteal tendon pain, hip flexor injuries)
  • Advice on training load management, prevention of over-training.

Gait Analysis

What is it?

  • Full body video analysis and assessment of your running technique.
  • Cadence assessment for your chosen pace (usually steady run pace).
  • Musculoskeletal screening and functional assessment – this is to complement the video analysis and enables us to develop the most suitable strength and conditioning programme for you.
  • A full report on the findings of the assessment – combines the findings of both the functional assessment and video analysis.

This is what Kelly said about the gait analysis:

Tonight was fascinating! We filmed my running and could see straight away that the way I have been running could be improved & found some really useful tips to help and exercises I can do! Highly recommend  Ed Pratt Sports Therapy! He is amazing!! 😄”
