A running gait assessment at React Physiotherapy can provide essential information regarding running style and the influence this has on injury presentation in both elite and recreational runners. Using cutting edge video technology, our experienced physiotherapist will analyse your running style - and this information, combined with an understanding of your injury history and the kind of distances you regularly run, enables us to make recommendations on running posture and technique.
Our chartered physiotherapist Chris has over 10 years experience of working with a wide range of sports people - from recreational to elite runners. As the former head of sports science and physiotherapy for Aston Villa Football Club's academy, Chris has the expertise to restore physical mobility and function and get individuals running to their fullest ability.
"After starting some running, I experienced pain in both knees resulting in me having to stop running altogether. Chris quickly diagnosed the problem and gave me advice and exercises to do to strengthen the muscles. After building up my running slowly, I am now able to run with no pain at all. Chris was also very flexible with my appointment time to enable me to go to the clinic to fit in with my family commitments."

“Chris from React guided me through an innovative rehabilitation programme for my anterior cruciate ligament injury with complete empathy for my frustration at being unable to play. The exercises he recommended challenged function and strength and enabled me to get back to training with confidence.”

Benefits of Gait Analysis - Running Re-education
Evidence suggests that participating in a running gait assessment can reduce the risk of injury, improve running economy and assist in the maintenance of an effective running exercise programme. As well as assessing objective factors such as movement and strength capacity, subjective factors such as training load, frequency, running cadence and speed will be taken into consideration before we feedback on the running gait assessment findings.
