Running

iMove Physiotherapy Running

Welcome to the iMove Physiotherapy Running page! Here at iMove, we love running and get a buzz out of treating running-related injuries.  With our first-hand experience, we have the ability to get you back running as soon as possible and also reduce the risk of further injuries.

What we Treat;

Below is a list of running injuries we regularly treat in our clinics;

  • Knee pain (i.e runner’s knee)
  • Hip and low back pain
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Shin splints
  • Hamstring injuries
  • Heel pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Stress fractures

Why we’re great at treating runners

To understand how to treat runners effectively, we are big believers in assessing how and why people run. 

At our clinics, we have developed a specialized running assessment that looks at all the variables which will help you become a faster, stronger, more efficient, and injury-free runner.

We measure;

  • Cadence
  • Foot Strike
  • Over-Stride
  • Vertical Oscillation
  • Ground Reaction Force
  • Leg Stiffness

As we like to call it “The Running Formulae,” is a combination of all the factors that influence your running.  Factors like, motivations, shoe type and frequency of running also play a role. We acknowledge that different running styles work for different people and are able to design a tailored program for you to take your running to the next level.

Elite assessment for everyone

AxIT technology

One of the techniques we use is called AxIT testing. This allows us to test the strength and reaction time of each muscle in your body accurately. This type of technology was previously only available at elite sports centres.

This level of assessment allows us to compare your injured side to your good side. This is the best way of knowing if you are ready to go back.

In fact, our goal is to get you 5-10% stronger than before you were injured, our technology and assessment make this possible. Combined with expert therapists who are passionate about running and love exploring the reason why you run.

Massage Recovery Service

At iMove, we are super lucky to have our remedial sports massage therapist Mike Engelsman. He is able to help you recover, reduce muscle soreness, or give you a tune-up for your next run.
