Have you got a persistent running injury?

Common treatments are Sports Medicine, Rest, Ice, New footwear, Physiotherapy, Arch Supports, Stretching, Cortisone, Shock-Wave therapy. If an injury persists over time there has to be a cause.

Treatment starts with understanding the cause of the pain

The Running Clinic offers an extensive functional lower limb assessment for athletes. Our musculoskeletal Podiatrists have provided over 30,000 patients with help in determining the prime cause of injuries.

Treatment

If an injury persists over a period of time there must be an underlying source

ICT treatment method now available for all heel related ailments

There are several reasons for ongoing injuries:

The Running Clinic offers an extensive functional lower limb assessment for athletes. Our musculoskeletal Podiatrists have provided over 30,000 patients with solutions and treatments by indentifying the prime causes.

  • Poor foot Biomechanics eg Angulated Calcaneous
  • Overuse injuries
  • Tight Muscles
  • Ill fitting or incorrect footwear
  • Running technique/Style
  • Medial / lateral movements i.e. soccer, rugby, AFL, hockey etc., can cause excessive stress

Over training can cause excessive stress.

Many recurrent running injuries have a source in the structural dysfunction of the feet.

Clinic data from 30,000 plus patients shows this can be due to the misalignment of the Calcaneous (heel bone) during gait.

This is clinically proven to be a prime factor in the structural efficiency foot function and the cause of many typical running injuries.

From the Clinic database it has been clinically proved structural efficiency in foot function is essential in preventing many running stresses.
