Conditions We Treat
We treat a wide-range musculoskeletal conditions and running-related overuse injuries, some of which are listed here. If you are still unsure about whether Run3D is right for you, then please contact your preferred Run3D clinic and they will be able to answer any questions.
Pelvis and Hip Injuries
- Greater Trochanteric Bursitis
- Gluteal Tendinopathy
- Hamstring Tendinopathy
- Piriformis Syndrome
- Low back pain
Hip and pelvis injuries are caused by excessive loading at the hip joint, which could result from abnormal pelvic, hip and/or knee joint motion. The movement at your ankle might also be contributing to the loading at your hip as it can sometimes be a driving force behind excessive hip motion. Our 3D gait analysis technology will enable us to accurately measure all of these movement patterns so that we can correctly pinpoint the cause of your injury and recommend the most appropriate rehabilitation programme. Your treatment might include exercise therapy and gait retraining in order to improve your movement patterns and provide a long-term solution to the problem.
- Patellofemoral Pain
- Patellar Tendinopathy
- Anterior Knee Pain
- Iliotibial Band Syndrome
- Fat Pad Impingement
- Chondromalacia Patella
The knee is the most common site of running-related injuries and underlying causes can include abnormal biomechanics, muscular inflexibilities, decreased stability and lack of control. Over-striding, increased knee-flexion at foot-strike, step-width, decreased hip extension at toe-off, anterior pelvic tilt, increased hip adduction, increased hip rotation and increased pelvic obliquity are just some of the biomechanical factors associated with common knee injuries. Our 3D gait analysis technology will enable us to measure all of these parameters (and more) and we’ll combine the results of your gait analysis with objective measurements of your strength, flexibility and motor-control to gain a clear understanding of all the factors contributing to your injury. We’ll use the information to build you an evidence-based rehabilitation programme, which might include gait retraining, strengthening and flexibility exercises, mobility movements and physiotherapy treatment, and if necessary referral to other specialist therapists.
Lower Leg, Foot and Ankle Injuries
- Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome
- Shin Splints
- Tibialis Anterior Tendinopathy
- Peroneal Tendinopathy
- Tibialis Posterior Tendinopathy
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Stress Fractures
Injuries are caused by a combination of factors that are unique to an individual and the success of your treatment relies on your clinician correctly identifying these factors that caused your injury in the first place. Our meticulous approach of accurately measuring everything that might have caused your injury ensures that we get this crucial first step right the first time we see you. Our 3D gait analysis will enable us to objectively measure potential risk-factors such as over-striding, increased dorsiflexion at mid-stance, inversion at foot-strike and excessive pronation. Our quantitative assessments of your strength, flexibility, motor-control, function and anatomical structure will enable us to identify other issues contributing to your injury. All this information will be used to create an evidence-based rehabilitation programme that directly targets the musculoskeletal deficits that are causing your injury. The programme might include exercise therapy to improve strength, motor-control and range of motion, physiotherapy treatment, footwear recommendations and gait retraining to optimise your movement patterns.
