At Hunter Physio, we not only want to help with injuries that do arise, but to look at technique and biomechanics to help you maximise your performance and prevent injuries before they occur, to keep you on track.

What To Expect At A Physio Running Assessment
The Physio Running Assessment is a two-step process. When you first attend your running assessment, we speak to you about your running goals, discuss your current and past training and discuss your relevant injury history. During this session we perform a detailed biomechanical assessment – including treadmill video analysis – that looks at muscle control, flexibility and running technique.
At your subsequent consultation, you’ll receive a summary report based on your assessment findings, which details recommendations and strategies to prevent injury and improve performance. All designed to help you to get the most out of your running.
