Gait and Running Analysis

Gait analysis, also referred to as running analysis, motion analysis or biomechanics. Whether as an activity on it’s own or a component of your sports, running has a crucial role in the practice of most sports, which is why getting it right is so important. 

By working in a variety of sports at different levels of performance we have gained a wealth of knowledge in analysing applied running movement. 

Maximising your performance and minimising any pain is our ultimate goal. We therefore recommend our clients to have a thorough analysis of their running technique when there is a need to:

  • Identify biomechanical faults – i.e. incorrect patterns of movement when you run – leading to overuse injuries
  • Improve your running technique, run with greater control  to avoid early fatigue
  • Improve your running economy – i.e. the amount of energy you spend to run a set distance 
  • Assess the effectiveness of your new or old running shoes in order to make sure that they suit your running style

What to bring on the day: your training gear, your new (> 6 months) and old  running shoes, insoles/orthotics (where applicable), your training diary, your usual work/daytime footwear.

We analyse your running on a treadmill by filming you through different cameras placed in front, on the back and by side.

12 weeks after injury I flew to Portugal and won a bronze medal in the European Championships. Without the help of the team at Balance I probably wouldn't have been back on the mats, let alone making the podium of a major tournament.
