Methods Applied to Assess Running Techniques
A biomechanical running assessment uses digital software to record gait patterns and conduct a video analysis of a runner’s technique. The video is then studied in ultra-slow motion to examine cadence, foot strike and body position adopted by the runner. Specialised physiotherapists will then be able to highlight any biomechanics anomalies in the athletes running technique and correct these imperfections using cues, specific drills and metronomes.
In some cases we use cadence analysis, which is a methodology used to measure the number of steps a runner takes in 60 seconds. In the same way, experts will then relay their recommended adjustments in the hope of enhancing the client’s performance and gait.
Third on the list of methodologies is a Musculoskeletal Screening which is conducted through a set of tests off the treadmill. These tests are aimed at particular muscles and joints to examine their strength, stability and flexibility. Likewise, it can be a useful method when looking to identify any performance hindrance and any risks of injury especially in runners looking to increase load and distance.
