Return to Run
Providing guidance on how to safely return to run following an injury helps to ensure you can safely increase your running and return to fitness.
We believe strength and conditioning can help to improve running performance, reduce the risk of injury and help you recover from a running injury. Therefore, we offer one to one strength training sessions and programs specifically tailored to you.
We help to address underlying weakness’ and biomechanical contributors to injury by developing strength training programs and running drills specifically tailored to your individual needs.
Running Gait Analysis
All our gait analysis services are led by our specialist running physio Chris Bramah. Having published multiple research papers in peer reviewed journals, presenting at international conferences and working with a number of Olympic athletes; Chris is able to blend scientific evidence with clinical experience to deliver you an in-depth assessment of your running technique.
Through our collaborative work at the Manchester Institute of Health & Performance we are able to facilitate access to ultrasound, MRI scans, body composition and bone density scans.
Injury diagnosis & management
We believe an accurate diagnosis is the first step to recovery from injury. Therefore, we take the time to ensure we provide you with a detailed assessment in order to establish the nature of your injury and underlying cause.
