Running Physio Glenelg

Some of our Aspire Physiotherapy team are runners and understand the love of pounding the pavements. Whilst it’s a great way to keep fit, runners often experience injuries in the knees, hips, ankles and feet, particularly if early warning signs of injury are ignored. Physio for runners can help diagnose the running injury, guide you through a recovery plan, and take proactive steps to reduce injury risk.

If you’re struggling with sore joints, achilles or other pain when you run, it’s time to seek professional help.

There are a few ways we offer Physio for runners:

Hands-On Physiotherapy – For immediate pain relief, we use a combination of massage, dry needling and hands-on physiotherapy. We’ll assess your injury and provide you with tailored advice to help speed up your recovery. Our top tip is that the longer you wait to seek help, the worse the injury may become.

    Running Assessment with video analysis – This service will provide you with an in-depth assessment of your running mechanics including strength, mobility, endurance and running technique. This 75-minute appointment with one of our physiotherapists can help you understand your running efficiency and mechanics. It can help you recover from long term injury as well as enhancing your running performance. Preventing running injury is the goal!

      Strength for Runners – For the longer term, our Pilates-based mat classes are a great way build strength in your core and running muscles. This strength can reduce risk of injury, and improve running performance. Join our Gentle or Open (Intermediate) mat class in Glenelg to help increase your mobility, strength and flexibility.

        At our Glenelg Physio Clinic, we provide a comprehensive range of services for our runners of all levels. From diagnosis of running injury and areas of vulnerability, through to coaching and running plan advice. We thrive on seeing our runners of all levels achieve a long and healthy running future.
