Running Assessments In Double Bay Sydney
Do you need a running physio in Sydney? At BeFit Training Physio, we know that running can be a very satisfying, but challenging sport. The stresses exerted on your body can create numerous running related injuries, resulting in spending less time enjoying your favourite activity and more time resting and healing.
That’s why we specialise in Running Assessments in Double Bay, Sydney with the aim of helping you to run faster, more efficiently and pain free. By examining the way your body moves when you run, we can rehabilitate common running related injuries and prevent further injuries from occurring.
Some of the frequent injuries suffered by runners include:
- Shin pain
- Hip pain
- Low back pain
- Heel pain
- Foot and ankle pain
- Planar fasciitis
- Shin splints
- Stress fractures
- Hip bursitis
- Patella Tendonitis
- Achilles tendon pain
- Iliotibial band injuries
We often find that it only requires small changes to your running technique and you are quickly running more efficiently, correctly and effortlessly.
What do our running assessments include?
As a specialist running physio, we start your assessment by taking a complete history: focusing on any previous and current injuries, your running schedule and your future goals for your sport. Next, we assess not just how you run, but also how your body moves as you run, looking at your stride length, cadence, foot stoke, strength, flexibility, alignment and many more characteristics that reveal your running gait.
To provide an accurate assessment, we never use a treadmill! Instead we meet you in your own environment, whether that’s a Sydney park, road or running track. This is because running on a treadmill is entirely different to running through a park or along a road; to improve your performance, we need to see how you normally run and the stresses that impact your body.
At BeFit Training Physio, we focus on an individualised approach, because everyone runs differently and a technique that helps one runner might hinder another’s performance.
