Running Injury Analysis by Total Physiotherapy
Specialist Analysis for Runners
Pain during running (or indeed after you’ve finished running) is one of the most common complaints we see at Total Physiotherapy.
When you start training for a specific event, such as a 10k, or a half/full marathon, the training load often substantially increases from what the body is used to.
Your ankles, knees, hips, lower back and the muscles controlling these joints commonly don’t have enough time to adapt to the new impact you are putting through them. Unfortunately, this puts you at an increased risk of injury.
But thankfully, there’s good news: with the correct advice and strategies in place, training doesn’t have to be painful.
And that’s where we come in!
An Answer for Running Pain
At Total Physiotherapy, we are experts in running injuries because we are all runners, have had our fair share of running injuries and have studied running specific treatment techniques for years.
If pain is something that affects you, our Running Analysis in Kent will suit you perfectly.
When you visit the clinic, we have one main goal:
To get you back running as soon as possible
There are 3 steps to the way we tackle a running condition:
– By treating and reducing any pain you’re getting day-to-day
– By analysing why running has caused this pain
– By making your body more robust so the pain doesn’t come back
Following these 3 steps ensures you come out a better runner and puts you in a strong position to reach your running goals.
We may deem it appropriate for you to have a specialist running and visual assessment on the treadmill, which we use to perform a biomechanical analysis of your walking and running styles. This means we can quickly and accurately pinpoint any potential causes for your pain, and treat it effectively.
We also work closely with specialist podiatrists to give highly specific diagnoses and effective treatment strategies to get you back to doing what you do best.

“I started running about a year ago and had built up enough fitness to be able to enter a half marathon. I started getting pain in my heel, which was causing me to limp.
The physio treatment I received was really helpful. I found the exercises I was shown made a big difference. I was also sure that subsequent appointments were necessary and I was discharged at the correct time. This ensured the treatment cost was kept as low as possible. I was very impressed and have told all my sporty friends how good my experience was.”
