Running Gait Analysis Colchester, Essex 

Running gait analysis is a form of assessment that analyses the way a person chooses to run. It is important to understand that there are many styles of running used by individuals and these styles are found at both elite and social levels. Our physiotherapists can help you with running gait analysis in Colchester, from the comfort of our clinic, and tailored to your specific needs. 
Running analysis can be very useful in identifying what parts of an individual's running style may be causing tissue overload and injury. Exercises or orthotics can then be prescribed to remedy issues that runners may be having when running without having to make any significant change in their style.

Conditions Running Gait Analysis can Treat 

“I came for physio after suffering knee pain after running. Craig carefully assessed my running position and helped to realign my positioning, while strengthening the affected area with targeted exercises.  
Craig explained the reasoning behind my discomfort and how the exercises would help, which really aided my understanding of what I was doing and why. I’m glad to say that I’m now back out running without discomfort."

"I visited Craig in November after experiencing pain in my ankle from running. I wanted to try to run a half marathon distance but was struggling to get over 4 miles without pain. Craig assessed me over two appointments and watched me running where he advised me on my running shoes and gave me exercises to strengthen not only my ankles but my legs as well, to prepare me for longer distance running.  
In January I ran 7.5 miles pain free and am on my way to the half marathon. I can't thank Craig enough for the advice and encouragement
