RUNNING ANALYSIS ADELAIDE
We specialize in helping runners stay injury free and reach their personal best!
Whether your goal is a marathon, a half marathon or just beating your Parkrun mates on Saturday morning, we have you you covered!
We can make the mistake of assuming running comes naturally, without thinking too much about it. Until our bodies break down and we are in pain; that gets our attention!
Running pain-free is a high level skill and a product of a solid physical foundation.
Running is an art and science; a balance of intuition and logic. Listening to your body becomes a form of meditation and mindfulness.
Our running analysis begins with understanding of you as a person; your running history and your goals and expectations.
The running assessment uses slow motion video analysis to carefully evaluate your running form. We use a checklist to identify the most common biomechanical errors.
Who we work with:
We don't work with just any runners, but if you have the following issues there is a high chance we can help you:
You're over 30 and getting nagging pains that's stopping you from reaching your running goals
You are getting knee pain while running
You find your lower back becoming painful after a run
You get very tight hamstrings and glutes during and after a run
You have had ongoing trouble with shin splints and nothing else has seemed to help
You have ongoing achilles tendon issues or pain in the heel of your foot
You are concerned running might be causing arthritis and wrecking your joints
You want to learn how to have longevity in your running career

1. Perform a comprehensive, holistic Running Assessment and give you a proper diagnosis and identify relevant contributing factors
