Running may look like a simple movement, but looks can be deceiving. Our habit of spending long periods sitting means that our bodies lose strength and suppleness, and we are ‘forgetting’ how to run naturally. Most people who ‘just start running’ will quickly develop pain or injuries. Why do we take lessons before we start swimming or playing tennis, but not before we start running?
In principle, injuries are preventable. If you run correctly, you can run for your entire life without worrying about wear and tear to the knees, ankles or hips. Research has shown that running does not have a detrimental effect on your joints, as long as you run correctly.
Identify and work on your weak points
A thorough gait analysis is a good way to discover your strengths and weaknesses. We will study the angle and mobility of your feet, ankles, knees, hips, back and arms. This enables us to identify factors that may be causing problems and give you advice about making sustainable improvements to your pattern of movement. This reduces the risk of injuries and results in long-term benefits such as healthy, strong joints and years of running pleasure.
