Running biomechanical assessments
Did you know that nearly 70% of runners will eventually get injured! Even the smallest deviation from good technique can cause injury or decrease running performance.
A biomechanical assessment can help detect these small deviations in your running mechanics. Our assessment includes a review of your injury and training history followed by measures of flexibility, alignment and mechanics. If errors are identified that could lead to a reduction in running performance or an increase in the risk of injury, we recommend a treatment plan.
Details on the session:
A test session takes 60 minutes from start to finish:
- You will change into your training outfit. We recommend you were tight running clothes, preferable darker in color. Loose clothes will interfere with the quality of the analysis. Wear the running shoes you currently train in but make sure to give the sole a quick clean.
- A barefoot static analysis will be performed where the expert will measure body alignment, assess strength and flexibility.
- You will then be asked to run on a treadmill for a few minutes, at different speeds. The speeds are selected based on your performance level. You will run for 15-25 minutes during which your running motion will be recorded.
- When you have finished running, the motion data will be analyzed and the expert will generate a report. When our expert has looked at the report, she will make a final assessment and the report will made available to you.
