Why get screened?

Running is something anyone can go out and do. Which is great and one of the things we love about it.

There are many different running techniques out there, good and bad. Skills vary between individuals and can be improved with coaching and training. Screening is the first step in the process.

Unfortunately, as with other activities, runners can get niggles, aches and pains, which can stop them enjoying the thing they love to do. Click here to read about how to learn from your running injuries. If you’ve noticed a pain that keeps on occurring, then it’s time to get it checked out to see how you can help improve things.

At PhysioFit Health, our ultimate aim is to keep you running well and when needed get you back running as quickly as possible.

Running Clinic. Running to the finish line. We want to get you back to running as soon as possible.

Who can benefit?

Anyone who is thinking about taking up running as an activity. Even those who have been running for a while can get assessed to see where they can improve as we all pick up bad habits. We can identify the areas that can be limiting your performance and make adaptations to help you reach and exceed your personal best.

What does the screening involve and how will it benefit my running?

The appointment is an hour.

During this, we’ll look at your flexibility, strength and control. We can identify areas that you’re good at and areas that could do with improvement. The presence of weakness or lack of flexibility can often lead to injuries during running. We’ll record you running on the treadmill or outside, which allows us to see what modifications you may need to make. In some cases, this can help improve your performance.

Once we’ve seen what you can do, you’ll be able to identify both your strengths and weaknesses. Knowing what you want to achieve will help us build your individual treatment plan.

Take home message – You need to get out and run!

Research is suggesting that exercises are great for improving strength and control but in order to get better at running, you need to go out and run (yay!).  Cue us telling you to go out and run, BUT…

You may have to adapt what you’re doing while you’re recovering.

We’ll get you out running when we can, depending on the problem of course. However, be prepared to adapt your programme at the beginning, reduce the distance and intensity, before we can build it back up again.

If you’d like to receive individual advice on what’s best for you, then book an appointment with our physio who will go through a movement and screening assessment with you and advice on the best course of action.
