Full Run Analysis.

Our Full Running Analysis is a powerful tool that examines every aspect of your running profile. 

We assess your muscle strength, mobility, and stability, as well as analyse your running gait, biomechanics, shoes, and training habits. All in one assessment.

These insights enable us to provide you with personalised exercises, shoe suggestions and training plan recommendations.

Whether you’re a beginner looking for a starting point or a seasoned runner aiming to improve, our platform is the perfect place to begin your journey. Let us help you reach your running goals with tailored guidance.

The process consist of three simple steps:

  1. Book an assessment at our practice.
  2. Get assessed, consisting off:
    • Consultation.
    • Running gait analysis on a treadmill.
    • Biomechanical assessment.
  3. Full report on the results, exercise suggestions, shoe recommendations and a training plan.
Our aim is for you to walk away with clarity on your running, what you need to do and the tools to help you get there.

Running gait analysis.

Do you just need a running gait analysis? Book it as a stand alone test.

A running gait analysis gives us an opportunity to look at how you run. This helps with identifying opportunities to improve your running, assist with injury rehabilitation or see if you’re running efficiency is improving.

By using video analysis and the RunScribe™️ technology, we can get valuable insights into your biomechanics.

Running shoe assessment.

There is no single metric or variable that can tell you what running shoes you need to buy. But seeing how your running gait responds to different shoes can help you in finding the right pair. 

The running gait analysis is a good opportunity to look at what works for you.

For physios, trainers and coaches.

If you are a physio, coach or trainer that need some insights in your clients running gait, the Gait Analysis is a great tool to get some info to help you help your client. 

We provide you with a detailed report with all the data and footage with recommendations and feedback. It’s like sending your client for a “running scan”.

Our aim is to provide you with another tool to help your clients, based on trust and open communication.

Running injury assessment

Our specialised evaluation examines essential elements such as strength, mobility, stability, and running gait, revealing any weaknesses and training errors that may hinder your performance or contribute to injury. 

Armed with this valuable knowledge, you can proactively address potential issues and elevate your overall running experience.

The assessment usually consists of the following:

  • History taking: Share your story, give some background, and explain your objectives.

  • Objective testing: Testing for issues in muscle strength, flexibility, posture, health factors (blood pressure, body composition, fitness) etc. that may be contributing to injury, pain or performance. 

  • Functional testing: Running and injury-specific testing, gait analysis etc.

The assessment results then help us to prescribe rehabilitation exercises, provide training guidelines or refer you to the appropriate professional if necessary.

About me:

I completed my pre-graduate- (BSc human movement science & physiology) and post-graduate studies (Honours in Biokinetics) at the North West University in 2009. Having been in private practice since 2010, I’ve worked hard to gain experience in assessing and understanding human movement and injuries within a variety of medical conditions and sports, while working in close coordination with other medical professionals. 
In recent years I’ve worked more with runners, helping injured runners through assessment, rehabilitation exercise programs and return-to-running coaching. Designing running programs and coaching runners started here – helping them manage their training more effectively and helping them run stronger. I also use coaching to help non-runners start the sport safely.
I’m analytical and structural by nature and apply these attributes in my work.

What is Biokinetics:

Registered with the Health Professions Council of SA, Biokinetics is a science of human movement and the application of exercise in rehabilitative treatment of performance.

Biokinetics improves a person’s physical well-being and quality of life through individualised scientific assessment of:

  • Posture
  • Muscle strength
  • Flexibility
  • Balance and stability
  • Movement quality
  • Blood pressure, fitness, heart rate, health and other health factors.
Once the biokineticist have identified your needs from the assessment, they prescribe scientific-based exercise programs to help you improve your health, well-being and ability to be physically active. This process is guided by the biokineticist while your progress is monitored objectively by re-assessing and reviewing of your goals.
