Running Injuries

Our running injury treatments

For runners we provide the most comprehensive services in the Southwest of England with our unique and award winnning combination of Physiotherapy, biomechanical analysis and run coaching.

 

For new or recent injuries

We assess each injury in detail as no two injuries are ever the same. Our hands-on treatments include soft tissue therapies, electrotherapy, joint mobilisations and taping. We’ll use the best combination of these for your specific symptoms, to get you back to running as quickly as possible.

For on-going or recurrent problems

This is where our Running Clinic excels. Cornwall Physio specialise in the treatment of Chronic and persistent pain, as well as in the treatment of running injuries. Combine the 2 with an on-going running injury and you really have come to the right place!

The key to treating on-going running injuries is correct diagnosis. Often with ongoing problems runners have previously been misdiagnosed or given incorrect advice. We get to the bottom of what the problem really is and more importantly why you are getting it. We assess how you move and why you move that way by looking at your strength, flexibility and running technique. Our running technique assessments involve video analysis of you running outside and on a treadmill. We look at you from all directions to build up a complete picture of how you run.

We’ve assessed hundreds of runners and have found a number of technique faults that are associated with common running injuries.

For example we have found 4 specific technique faults that nearly all clients with Achilles tendon pain demonstrate. By correcting these technique faults alongside traditional Physiotherapy treatment, we get runners with Achilles pain better in the quickest possible time.
