Cairns running and movement assessments take 1 hour. They’re conducted by one of our Cairns physiotherapists and recorded on our treadmill and Movement Assisted Technologies (MAT). They provide a complete assessment of your running technique and mobility, allowing us to identify any areas which are causing pain or recurring injuries.


The MAT assessment uses evidence based measurements and testing to examine your strength, range of movement, balance and endurance. Each assessment and is tailored to your individualised needs. From helping to guide your future training and rehabilitation, to comprehensively assessing your biomechanical function to review causes of pain.


The findings from our Cairns running and movement assessments, enables us to provide clients with a very targeted and specific injury management and prevention approach. It also allows us to prepare a customised plan for your treatment and exercise for rehabilitation. To book a Cairns running and moving assessment, call us today on (07) 4231 9777.


Why you need a Cairns running and movement assessments. Our modern lifestyles of prolonged sitting, driving and poor posture can lead to muscle strength and movement imbalances. When we try to increase our training load, for example running, cycling or hiking, these imbalances can often lead to injuries including knee pain, hip pain and back pain.

In some cases, the cause of the pain is not in the same location as the pain. For example, did you know that a lack of hip internal rotation has been linked to shoulder and elbow pain in baseball throwers?

That’s why a Cairns running and movement assessment is so important. It provides a total body assessment, identifying any biomechanical dysfunction. Wellness Embodied will always use the latest technology and evidence based research, to deliver individualised care and treatment plans. We look at all of the factors which can cause you to have pain, or even stop you from getting faster or stronger.


The MAT™, developed by Movement Assessment Technologies, is the world’s number one movement assessment tool and it’s now available in Cairns at Wellness Embodied. The MAT is a game changer when it comes to Cairns running and movement assessments, allowing us to assess and measure all three dimensions of functional movement. We can assess:

  • Single leg balance and stability.
  • Range of motion of the ankle, knee, hip, back and upper body.
  • Jump and hop tests.
  • Core balance and stability.
  • General and endurance based strength.
