Running & Walking

Running and walking are the cornerstone of a fitness regime. Good foot and leg function is required to perform these activities pain free.  Subtle variations in biomechanics can be the difference between pain free movement or developing a painful foot problem.

Our new 3D RUN LAB biomechanical facility combined with our experienced expert staff enable us to assess a variety of conditions. Shin splints, heel pain, achilles disorders, knee pain and hip issues are all common problems that require a thorough physical analysis and gait assessment. Treatment regimes will often include training and activity modifications as well as exercise prescription, gait retraining, shoe advice, orthotic therapy and taping.

We also conduct assessments of pain free but unusual walking and running styles, providing the most up to date ethical and evidence based assessment and advice.

Our goal is to keep you as active and as pain free as possible.
