Runners

Many running injuries are not related to adverse biomechanics but due to poor training techniques. This could be….

  • Large training volumes with limited recovery
  • Progressing training too quickly
  • Poor running shoes and running surfaces

When assessing running we look for symmetry from the front ( coronal plane), the side (sagittal) and transverse plans. If a faulty pattern is identified (asymmetry) we then relate it to the current symptoms and then find the cause of the asymmetry.

This may be due to joint stiffness, muscle weakness ...
