Running Assessment

A running assessment consists of:

  • a detailed history of your running career, current training mileage, training methods and goals;
  • functional movement screen to assess any flexibility and strength deficits that could contribute to poor running technique;
  • a detailed video gait analysis on the treadmill. (The goal here is not to deconstruct running gait but to work with it to improve efficiency in running style and eliminate asymmetry);
  • running drills to improve technique;
  • one or two cues to put into practice on weekly runs;
  • an evidence based strength and conditioning program appropriate for your current level of strength to improve running economy and to assist in injury prevention.

There will also be time to address any questions on training plans and guidance on race preparation if you have an event coming up.

Follow up sessions can be booked on a one by one basis as needed but if you’re looking for a more structured approach for best performance for an event or whilst overcoming injury, see details of our discounted package below.

Ali has worked as a musculoskeletal and sports physio for over 15 years.

A skiing accident led her to treatment by a physio and she was so impressed that she became one!

Ali loves working with weekend warriors and those who have a goal but have not managed to achieve it. She specialises in return to running pain-free with a full assessment and training programme. As a marathon runner herself, she understands just how frustrating an injury can be.

It's not just the sporty people that Ali likes to work with. Patients with ongoing aches and pains who need a really clear diagnosis and plan of action to improve are just as rewarding to work with. Ali has extensive experience in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of necks, backs, hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists. She uses a range of treatments including manual therapy, acupuncture, Pilates, taping and exercise programmes. Her background of working with pre and post-operative patients allows her to tailor the prehab and rehab plan for each patient, communicating directly with Orthopaedic Consultants if needed.

Ali would like everyone to be as active as they can be to reach their potential of both mental and physical stamina to cope with life's demands.

As well as working in clinic, she puts her skills to use pitchside having worked with two local clubs, Battersea Ironsides Rugby Club and Spencer which has six different sports including cricket, hockey, tennis, squash and netball. Internationally, she has treated the Irish Womens' hockey team in the Europeans. She hung up her own hockey stick last year and took to river paddle boarding for a fun core workout between her running and cycling days.
