Not sure whether you are running correctly or just started running? One of our specialities is assessing your running gait to pick on any obvious signs of inefficiency and then put in place measures to address them.
In particular assessing your cadence (steps per minute) and discussing around this topic is very important to help prevent over-striding – a potential contributing factor to running related injuries.
By improving your gait you will ensure you are loading your feet and lower limbs as efficiently as possible. This will also help compliment getting the most out of your running shoes which are designed to try and protect your feet and lower limbs when striking/striding efficiently.
If there are major gait floors and we have also identified certain muscle weaknesses and/or tightnesses restricting you from running efficiently we also work closely with running experienced Physiotherapists to help address these issues.
