Running Analysis

An in-depth running analysis will help us to get to the root cause of your pain and identify faulty running mechanics. Looking at key joint angles and positions at each phase of the running cycle, we can identify common mechanical faults like overstriding, over-pronation, and knee valgus that may be contributing to your pain.
