"Remember, the feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around wishing you were running"
Passionate about running.... We take the prevention and management of running injuries to a whole new level
Providing a comprehensive running assessment, we look to ensure that you can run free of injury to achieve your running goals. Our highly skilled podiatric biomechanists can provide advice on strength and conditioning, running technique, orthotics, footwear assessment, injury management and prevention.
Running is a highly complex dynamic activity. It requires a unique balance of strength, flexibility, timing, tolerance and good luck!
Various reports state between 50-70% of runners receive one or more running injuries every year. Runners average 1000 steps per kilometer, each with up to 5-7 times your body weight having to be absorbed and dissipated by your body. The repetitive nature of running, combined with overload and training errors can take its toll.
One thing for sure when it comes to running - everybody's got an opinion. You only need to consult Dr Google to get an idea of how confusing it can be. We help sort out the wheat from the chaff, keeping abreast of the ever-changing world of injury management and biomechanical knowledge. We provide sound Evidence Based medical advice to assist in injury management and prevention. Being runners ourselves, we know what it is like to have those goals inhibited by pain or injury.
The Running Injury Clinic does not require referral for assessment. However, we are also more than happy to accept referrals from, and to work with, your physio, doctor, chiropractor, osteopath, musculoskeletal therapist, running coach, massage therapist, sports physician etc.
