Injury Prevention: Your First Line of Defense


1. Biomechanical Analysis

We can assess your biomechanics, gait, and muscle imbalances to identify potential issues before they escalate. Targeted interventions correct your form and technique, reducing stress on muscles and joints.


2. Strength Training Programs

Focused exercises for core muscles, hips, and lower limbs enhance stability and reduce injury risks. Say goodbye to those pesky shin splints and IT band woes!


3. Footwear Recommendations

Proper shoes matter! Through gait analysis, our physiotherapists can recommend suitable running shoes. No more blisters or Achilles tendonitis due to ill-fitting footwear.


4. Flexibility and Stretching

While the role of stretching is debated, dynamic stretching can be beneficial. Ask us to guide you on the right stretches for your training regimen.
