Running Stronger is proud to work with our partners at NK Active who provide 3d Running Gait Assessments.
We see patients all the time with aches and pains triggered by exercise that prevent them from being active. These injuries are often as a result of their own gait. Your gait is simply how you walk and run – the biomechanical movement of your body. If you have abnormal biomechanics, it causes stress to your inner body and there’s an increased risk of injury to skeletal muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.
Here at NK Active, we use gait analysis to identify abnormalities of movement caused by injury, imbalance, muscle weakness and poor technique. Once diagnosed we can treat the pain using for example shockwave therapy or muscle exercise, and issue long-term preventative advice such as how to run correctly, prescribed insoles or better running shoes.
