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.
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!! 😄”
