Your practitioner will then conduct a physical examination, including assessment of your posture and movement as well as muscle and joint tests in order to diagnose your problem.
Your diagnosis and the expected recovery will be discussed with you and a we will work with you to form a treatment plan to suit your commitments and your sporting goals in the context of your injury
Initial treatment and advice are included in this session. If subsequent sessions are required, we will arrange a suitable time for follow up at reception.
For a Running Assessment, we will assess your goals in terms of getting on top of niggles, improving your performance or both.
We will then assess your movement, strength and core stability. We will match this up with video footage of your running on a treadmill and explain the issues that need to be addressed.
Running assessment is generally carried over 2 at least sessions to allow follow up on changes and will include advice on strength, flexibility and running technique.
