Run Faster and Further than you Ever Have Before

The Run Lab: Injury - 3D Gait Analysis

For ongoing running injuries or niggles, this is the ultimate diagnostic session, combining 3D gait analysis with Physiotherapy assessments.

We use a combination of tests specific to your problem, including 3D gait analysis, foot-scanning and force plate tests. We also perform a full physiotherapy assessment and clinical evaluation. It’s perfect for runners with ongoing aches or pains, or those prone to knee pain, shin pain or calf tightness. We diagnose precisely WHAT the problem is and WHY it's happening. Finding the root cause in this way helps us remedy the issue and prevent future problems.

Common problems we see in runners include knee pain, shin pain, ankle or hip, foot or ankle pain and sciatica. To complete this gait analysis session, you need to be able to run comfortably for 3-5 minutes. Suppose you are currently unable to run at all, due to pain. In that case, we recommend you start with one of our Physiotherapy assessments and add 3D gait analysis once symptoms improve.

40’s - St. Austell

“I've found that coming here regularly not only has sort of stopped any niggles becoming injuries but it's also just helped my training. Regular maintenance here keeps me on track. Whatever level of runner you are or whatever sport you do, this is the place to come.



50’s - St. Austell

“I have complete trust in the treatment that I was being offered. I just knew as long as I sort of did what I was asked to do I would see results and I was delighted with how quickly I managed to turn around what was quite a depressing injury into being able to run without pain.



30’s - St. Austell

“Lou and her team know what exercises they can give me to make me stronger and to just improve my running efficiency even more. I've got lots of friends and family that use them, and we've all progressed in our running careers.
