Did you know that at Wellness Embodied, we are now offering a one hour running assessment appointment, during which our physiotherapist Alyza will analyse your running technique, and provide you with tips and tricks on how to make your running more efficient. It also includes a full lower body strength assessment to look for any weaknesses or imbalances that you may have, to ensure that we can provide you with a targeted exercise program and assist in preventing any injuries that you may sustain from running.
These running assessments are suitable for everybody! Whether you are wanting to begin running, but unsure of where or how to start, or whether you are a long distance running veteran looking to reduce your aches and pains, this session will provide you with the information you need to work towards achieving your goals.
So, why is completing a running assessment important?
By utilising slow motion video analysis software, we can slow down your running and really look at what is happening throughout your body. We utilise the results to make a few small changes to your running pattern, to observe the affect this has on your overall gait pattern, and running economy!
We also discuss your training load, looking at things like training type, frequency, intensity and length of sessions to give us a big picture of what a normal training program looks like for you. From there, we can pinpoint things that might be missing, for example; are you getting enough strength and conditioning in your sessions?
Analysing and improving these aspects of your running not only allows us to assist you in making your running economy as efficient as possible, it also assists us in pinpointing anything that may be responsible for your aches and pains.
