At Stride Physiotherapy and Health Group our aim is to get as many people active and moving as possible. That’s why we offer specialist services such as Running Assessment and return to running programs.
Running is a skill and often injury leads to changes in the way we move and often allows for the persistence and presence of injury.
To ascertain the contribution of running technique to ensure it is something that is not forgotten, we offer Running Assessment Consultations by our trained Physiotherapy and Podiatry team members. These sessions incorporate and include and in depth look at the biomechanics of running and the use of ‘cueing’ to see if changes can be made as necessary, to positively impact injury and performance.
We also complement these in house assessment sessions with the ability to prescribe return to running programs that incorporates the use of feature packed Mobile App: Team Buildr.
Team Buildr allows us to prescribe an individualised program that you can complete with the trusty use of your mobile phone or tablet. It allows us to keep track of your progress and has a seamless communication feature to ensure we keep communicating throughout your running program.
Our team of specialists have constant contact with each other via dedicated weekly meetings which allows for multiple allied health disciplines input into each clients program, to ensure changes can be made as necessary.
We will utilise our treadmill for these assessments as well as our onsite 20m running track.
Running is a key component of many sports and therefore is an important consideration when rehabilitating any musculo-skeletal injury.
A Physiotherapist or Podiatrist who understands your injury and what sport or activity you need to return to , will gain great insight through assessing your running and this will be an invaluable component of ensuring you achieve success in returning from injury.
