WHAT'S INVOLVED IN AN ASSESSMENT?
The assessment will start off with a thorough subjective and objecitve history about your injury or symptoms, using musculoskeletal screening tools, basic range of movement and stability / strength testing. We will also take information on footwear, running volumes, speed, cadence and other current fitness regimes.
You will then be video recorded running on the treadmill at the pace that you normally run at. The Physio will then assess and breakdown the video, analyising each component from the rear view, side view and front view to identify any biomechnical faults that are relevant to your symptoms or are potential for injury.
They will then create a mobility and strength exercise program specifically addressing the issues, which you will be able to access online and follow with instrucitonal videos. The Physio will then go through these exercises with you in another appointment. If required, a forceplate gait assessment will also be taken to determine exact foot movement patterning left vs right on footstrike through to toe off.
