South Yarra Running Clinic
At South Yarra Spine & Sports Medicine we aim to give you a whole new understanding of the way you run.
In the modern world, running is one of the most common forms of exercise. It’s great for burning calories and improving your cardiovascular health but it can also lead to injury, especially if you don’t have a good understanding of how you’re moving or what may be causing pain.
Our running clinic will make you a better runner. We conduct a clinical assessment of your strength, flexibility and movement control, quality of your running, joint stability, foot strike patterning. All of this helps us identify problems early on so we can work together in making sure those issues don’t become more serious over time.
So that when it comes time for big races such as marathons, there are no surprises about what may be holding back performance.
Let us help you to keep moving for life.
What to expect?
Your Run Screen Journey
Once you have signed up for your Run Screen, you will be sent a questionnaire that will examine your health and running background. This questionnaire will help guide your running specialist review. The warm up will examine medical health, footwear, injuries, training principles and nutrition.
The screening assessment will take 60 minutes. This assessment will include a functional running screen using the treadmill. The practitioner will take the participant through strength testing to analyse muscle imbalances, patterning, strength, neuromuscular control. Wear your normal running shoes, comfortable running clothing and arrive well hydrated.
The Follow Up
Following your running screen, your practitioner will finalise a detailed report on both our biomechanical and clinical findings. The report explains the findings and characteristics which are important to help you improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury. These recommendations will help form the basis of your individualised training program.
You will be asked to return for a follow-up session and review of findings – 30 minutes appointment. The Plan – > Review of findings from run screen and > Plan for future appointments with your practitioner to individualise your plan e.g. gait retraining over several sessions, strength program
