If you are looking to prevent injuries, our physiotherapy run assessment provides a detailed analysis of your overall flexibility, strength, and movement patterns, helping you to run more efficiently. In this 60-minute assessment, our physiotherapists will collect a detailed history of your running experiences, previous injuries, and running goals.

From there, you will be provided with an exercise plan to ensure you can continue to progress towards your running goals.
