Runner’s Full Body MOT

Runner’s Full Body MOT With Running Technique Assessment

The physiotherapists at CSPC are experienced in assessing and treating runners on a regular basis, from the elite level to grass roots athletes. We have worked with runners from local running clubs in the area for a number of years, providing physiotherapy and injury prevention advice.

At CSPC we are keen to help runners get the best out of themselves and keep them enjoying their running for many years. This service is suitable for those who recognise that they may not move as efficiently as they could, would like to get rid of a recurrent injury, are getting back to running after injury or surgery, or who feel they have reached a plateau of performance.

By watching you walk and run, and carrying out a number of tests in the clinic, it is usually possible to find some key areas that may need treating or retraining, to improve efficiency or that will help to offload an area that is often injured. It may be as simple as adding some stretching or strengthening exercises into your training or addressing some more technical issues such as your arm swing or posture. This can dramatically reduce the stresses placed on your body and help you move better.

Running is something we are rarely taught how to do, and it is something we do as a child purely for the joy of it. With this service, we aim to help you enjoy your running, reduce your injury risk and get as much out of running as possible. Many of our physios run, whether for fitness or for headspace, so we understand the importance of keeping you running!

It is NEVER too late to begin to address your technique. Areas we look at during your runner’s MOT:

What happens after identifying areas for improvement?

You will be taught strengthening or stretching exercises or running drills tailored to your needs, which can start to address areas that will improve your running style.
“Winning the MOT and subsequent treatment has pretty much transformed my running. There were so many things about my style which I hadn’t even thought about or considered changing. People have actually commented about how much better I look and my times speak for themselves. I have taken 1m10 off my 10K PB to get it to 42.03 and have run a course PB on pretty much every summer series run I do, including 1m40 off a 4.4m hilly route where my previous PB was set in 2010.” Rowan Booth 2017 CSPC #PBCHALLENGE winner
