What is Running Analysis?

Article by John Miller

Assessing how you run is very important. Running analysis is aimed at identifying:

  • How you actually run? eg technique, foot placement etc
  • Where you have lack of movement? eg joint stiffness, muscle tightness
  • Where you lack control? eg joint hypermobility, muscle weakness
  • What shoe type would suit you best?
  • Whether an orthotic is appropriate for you?

Physiotherapists are professionally trained to detect biomechanical faults which can predispose you to injury. Even better, they'll start fixing the problems they identify straight away.

Running Analysis


Biomechanical analysis can involve:

  • gait analysis - study of your walking pattern.
  • running analysis - study of your running style.
  • video analysis or motion capture analysis.
  • sports biomechanics - sport specific analysis.
  • workplace analysis - study of how you do you job.
  • biomechanics of running, sprinting, swimming, throwing etc.
