Running Assessments Done by your Biokineticist

RUNNING ASSESSMENTS

One of the best ways to improve your running and ensure it is economical efficient and safe for you is by having your Biokineticist do a proper running assessment for you

WHAT IS RUNNING ASSESSMENT?

A video gait analysis involves running on a treadmill while a recording is made of the runner. The footage is slowed down and assessed by the Biokineticist. This helps identify biomechanical abnormalities in the gait cycle.

HOW IS A RUNNING ASSESSMENT DONE?

Running is analysed using a high speed camera while running on a treadmill which allows the Biokineticist to provide a comprehensive report of the running technique and biomechanics. A manual assessment of strength and flexibility is done and appropriate corrective exercises are prescribed where necessary.

WHO MUST HAVE A RUNNING ASSESSMENT DONE?

Runners of all abilities ranging from recreational runners to elite runners looking to improve efficiency and performance can benefit from a running assessment.

Running assessments can be performed on injured and non injured runners or runners returning from injury.
