RunFit - Running Assessment
London is one of the busiest ‘Running Cities’ in Europe with tens of thousands of people running in the capital every day. As a leading provider of Physiotherapy in the city, our Capital Physio team are assessing and treating runners every day. We have also been an offical London Marathon Injury Clinic for the past several years so we have loads of experience helping runners.
In order to provide a gold standard service for our runners, we are excited to announce the introduction of our RunFit service; a 1 hour comprehensive assessment of muscle power screening, joint mobility and video gait analysis from which our runners will be prescribed a tailored management programme, including exercise therapy and running gait re-education.
Whether you are training for an event for the first or thirty first time, are battling an injury or simply want to improve your performance, RunFit is a service that can benefit all runners.
Call 033 0333 0435 or email email@example.com to book.
