What is The Running Clinic?

The Running Clinic is a running assessment and retraining service.  We have been helping runners of all ability evolve and improve their running form using specific cues, exercises and advice to make lasting changes.

  • Running assessments are approximately 60 minutes long and made up of two parts.  Please make sure to wear your running gear.
  • Retraining sessions are between 30-45 minutes and involve running and exercise drills.

Part 1 – Video Analysis:

This will involve us taking some short video clips of you running on a treadmill to assess your technique. Unlike trainer shops, we assess the whole of your running action from head to toe, not just your feet.  We then review your running style analysing any issues and create a plan to help you achieve your running goals.

Part 2 – Functional Movement Analysis:

The Functional Movement Analysis is a series of 10 movements that allow us to identify any faults or weaknesses that could be preventing you from getting the most out of your running. Because these movements are all related to the running action they are a great way for us to pick up on any compensations or dysfunctions you may have. We give you a benchmark score out of 100 so we can retest this and monitor your improvements.

By giving you specific exercises and drills through our retraining program we are able to help you improve your movement and reduce compensations or bad habits.

Following your running assessment we will have identified  what is wrong and how we can help.  Furthermore, we will have provided you with some help on how to start making changes and improvements.

To make quicker and lasting changes to running form we recommened a series of retraining sessions usually 1-2 weeks apart.  These sessions include:

  • Further video analysis
  • Running retraining on a treadmill
  • Running drills
  • Movement retraining exercises
  • Strengthening exercises and homework!

Changing and improving running form doesn’t happen over night, its an evolution.  Remember no one ever teaches us how to run we just gradually learn to do it.  Above all, running is like any other skill, it can be improved and further our enjoyment.
