Running is one of the world’s most popular forms of exercise, with millions of regular participants. Although running is an effective way to achieve many health benefits, it is associated with a high risk of injury. Some injuries are traumatic, but most are due to overuse.
Research suggests that up to 70% of recreational and competitive runners sustain overuse injuries during any 12 months period. 42% of all running injuries are to the knee, followed by 17% to the foot and ankle, 13% to the lower leg and 11% to the hip and pelvis.
Common running injuries include: Patello-femoral pain syndrome, Shin splints, Achilles tendinopathy, iIlio-tibial band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, Hamstring strain, Groin strain, Back pain. The only real way to understand a runners susceptibility to injury is analysing the runner in 3D space and analysing the interactions across the various joints and structures involved in making the run possible. Running Analysis involves recording runner’s movement patterns through 3D motion capture cameras while they walk and run on treadmill, along with detailed running injury history, running characteristics, physical examination, various specialised tests and 2D Video Analysis. The information from the 3D Analysis is combined with runner’s physical examination data and 2D video analysis provides a comprehensive analysis of runner’s walking and running mechanics.
This includes measuring your Injury Index Our unique diagnostic tool precisely identifies what you chances of injury are based on the way you walk or run, Muscular & Joint Velocity which also helps identify areas of muscular strength, flexibility and strain so we can identify the muscle and create a more precise and effective exercise program that suits you specifically. Fitness Testing performed a detailed physical and cardiovascular assessment for all the individuals getting tested. The cardiac, pulmonary function, the fitness testing with physical testing and the movement analysis on the treadmill gives the most accurate information that one needs to further perform better in exercise.
