Running Gait Analysis

Home » Running Gait Analysis

Have you suffered from shin splints, plantar fasciitis, hamstring strains or ITB pain?

If you have suffered from or currently suffering from these types of injuries you will benefit from a running gait analysis and Musculoskeletal screen. We identify poor biomechanics and abnormalities via a series of anatomical tests and use video technology to identify poor biomechanics that will help you overcome your inefficiencies within your technique.


Running Gait Analysis

At Physio Professionals we are experts in assessing and identifying injury risks, correcting poor running technique and addressing bio-mechanical faults.

Our Sport physiotherapists work closely with runners, triathletes and joggers.

  • Heel pain
  • Shin splints
  • Patellofemoral pain (knee)
  • ITB syndrome
  • Lower back pain
  • And more…


Other Advantages
  • It’s dynamic! That means your running technique is assessed on the treadmill, because your biomechanics can change a lot from standing still, to walking, to running!
  • At Physio Professionals, the therapists are all runners and bring a wealth of running experience and knowledge.
  • Assessment includes analysis of the whole biomechanical chain (ie, feet, knees, hips, lower back, upper back, shoulders)
