Gait Analysis For Runners: A Modern Approach  with Matt Phillips of runchatlive.com.

What Is A Modern Approach To Gait Analysis? 

Gait Analysis can be a hugely beneficial tool for runners, but often not for the reasons we are traditionally taught. Despite the popular use of Gait Analysis to screen runners for ‘biomechanical flaws’ to reduce running related injury and/or increase running performance, the success of such is often hit & miss. The fact that so many runners still get injured (or re-injured) is testimony to this.

In this course, running injury & performance specialist Matt Phillips of runchatlive.com guides participants through all of the traditional elements of Gait Analysis, but also draws upon research to highlight the limitations of a solely ‘biomechanical’ approach. Participants are then introduced to other ways that we can use a gait analysis service to help runners recovery from injury, reduce risk of future injury, and optimise performance.

Course Content:

  • Biomechanics of running – gait cycle, injury & performance
  • Causes of running related injury – perceived vs. evidence based
  • Understanding pain –Cartesian, Gate Control, Neuromatrix, Biopsychosocial
  • Subjective assessment for gait analysis
  • Objective assessment for gait analysis
  • Gait hardware & software: 2D Gait Analysis vs 3D Gait Analysis
  • Interpretation of data from gait cycle
  • Gait modification & re-education
  • Strength training for runners
  • Footwear – trainers & orthoses
