Running Assessment

Running Assessment

A Running Assessment, or Running Clinic (including Gait Analysis) is a method of assessing the way in which you walk and run. By determining the way in which you run or walk, physiotherapists can detect biomechanical faults that could be increasing your chance of sustaining an injury.

The primary focus of a Running Assessment is to measure the degree of pronation. Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body. Pronation refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. This rolling motion absorbs some of to the shock caused by the foot striking the ground; distributing the force more proportionately.

By understanding your degree of pronation, physio’s can not only offer tips on how to improve your running style but also advise on the most suitable type of running shoe.

People run in a variety of different styles, but many run without prior instruction. It’s only once injury sets in that runners seek out advice as to why, only to realise they’ve been running with poor form for a long time, which resulted in one or more injuries. If you take part in regular sporting activity or are a keen runner, then visiting CBR Clinics for a Running Assessment (including Gait Analysis) could help prevent injuries moving forward.

Your First Running Assessment

Our Physiotherapist Peter specialises in running injuries and gait analysis. He offers Running Assessments and treatment sessions at our Waterloo Clinic. The sessions are undertaken using a treadmill where a full gait and running style analysis is conducted. From here CBR Clinics provide you with a programme to help correct and change your running style. That, in turn, will help you improve your energy usage, minimise the risk of injury and even improve your running performance.

Our clients who have undergone a Running Assessment have reported:


Improved personal best


More efficient energy expenditure


A significant improvement in the alignment of the body


Improvement of stride quality


Elimination of symptoms that were present before the assessment

What our clients say…

3 doctors mis-diagnosed me with RSI (including a private hand ‘expert’)… CBR diagnosed me correctly as having neck issues before I even arrived – just from my description of symptoms… I just hope I remember to go to a Physio first before a doctor when I next get pains in my joints.

My visit to Bruno are really effective on my back right on the same day. He is a great profesional as well as a really warm person to deal. He make you feel calm and relaxed at the consultation. I have recovered strength on my arm thanks to his treatments. I will definitely recommend anyone to go to his clinic.

Peter was very professional! He identified my problem area, gave me excellent advice and exercise to do. I left feeling very positive, will definitely recommend him to people.

C. Cole

I have been treated by Silvia for a shoulder pain. She is an amazing osteopath, very profesional, knowledgeable and a nice person. Silvia is very easy going and explains things extremely clearly.I have been back a few times since and always had fantastic results. I cant recommend CBR Clinic highly enough. Thank you Silvia for making my shoulder much better!

Natalie H

I have been having treatment at CBR Clinics for over 3 months now and I can honestly say that it is one of the best investments in myself I have made. I have had a bad back for a long period which stems from lots of sport and the office job. After seeing Lyndsy Mills my back has recovered and mornings tend to be much easier 🙂 I would recommend to friends, family and work colleagues.

V. Man

Really good support throughout the 3 weeks of physio. Great selection of take-home exercises and advice that helped me recover and get back to playing sport a good week before I thought I’d be able to. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking for top quality treatment.

M. Batstone

Bruno & his team are professional, efficient, knowledgeable in a number of different disciplines, treatment was effective and Bruno charming. The clinic’s location is very convenient being directly opposite Waterloo station. Disabled parking is availabe in street behind the clinic.

Patricia P.

I’ve been going to CBR for a few years now and have been treated by three of their staff in that time – all great, especially Bruno. I love the fact you can book online and they’re open late most nights and around on thr weekend too. My current treatment is under Nick who specialises in headaches from which I suffer, not just treating the pain but trying to get me to a position where I don’t have to visit too often. How many osteos do that?
