The best way to examine your running style is to actually see you run. We do slow motion filming and an in depth analysis of what happens at each point of your running cycle

Repetition is essential in order to retrain your running technique effectively as is good feedback to allow you to fine tune things and be sure that you are maintaining good running form. That is why we have developed a re-training package of 6 sessions ideally to be used within a 3 month period to give you the best chance of re-training your technique. Each 45 minute re-training session will include short periods on the treadmill with video feedback and retraining drills to encourage correct muscle firing patterns.
All assessment and re-training sessions take place at our satellite clinic at Mint Bridge the home of Kendal Rugby Union Football club. Cost £75 for the assessment, package of 6 retraining sessions £225, assessment and retraining package £300. Individual re-training sessions are charged at our standard rate of £40
I came to Kendal Physiotherapy Centre after I had raced two seasons on the fells whilst suffering from injury. (pain in the hamstring and glut area. In fact 2016 was my best season ever, securing 3 silver team medals in the British and English Fell Championships). But my gluts were not firing which was causing pressure on my hamstrings and eventually it was too painful to contemplate any running at all.
Richard took me back to basics; taught me to run efficiently and effectively again in a way that would avoid injury. Their professionalism in achieving the best outcomes for their clients is exceptional.
