Running well and pain free does not always come naturally

  Running injuries are common and take a variety of forms. Up to 79.3% of runners report to have been affected by injury, with the knee accounting for 50% of injuries. Factors contributing to running injuries vary greatly and are rarely self-evident, which is why a comprehensive approach to assessing individual risk is recommended. RUNfit provides a unique solution that includes a multifaceted approach to gait assessment, injury risk profiling and performance optimisation.

Footwear

  

The foot and ankle play an integral role in gait analysis. Undesirable foot and ankle mechanics pose more than just a risk in isolation but are often implicated in other common sites of injury, particularly the knee. A RUNfit assessment includes a thorough analysis of foot mechanics and structure. RUNfit assesses gait with and without orthotics in situ where a client already has orthotics. Where podiatry referral is required, the assessment data can be used in helping create an optimal insole or other orthotic device.

What to bring to your assessment

  

  Please wear your usual running clothing and footwear (if new footwear, please also bring a worn pair of running shoes to be assessed). Also bring a water bottle and any orthotics or insoles you use for your running shoes.
