Our physiotherapists are well positioned to get you back to running sooner.

We use a wide range of evidence-based treatment approaches, with a strong focus on supporting people to achieve their goals through effective exercise approaches, manual therapy and other treatments as indicated.

How do we treat running injuries?

We are experts in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy


The causes of running injury vary depending on both the specific injury and individual characteristics. Our expert team will provide you with a thorough assessment to determine the most appropriate management plan. You will be provided with an optimal and progressive management plan consisting of running re-education (i.e. changing technique), education, exercise prescription and physiotherapy.


Importantly, we complete a thorough running video analysis of each runner we treat to ensure we identify and correct any faulty movement patterns. In most runners we will also use the biomechanical analysis to facilitate running retraining (i.e. changing technique), a missing link in successfully managing many chronic running injuries.

What running injuries do we specialise in?

  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)

  • Patellofemoral pain (knee cap pain, runners knee)

Do I need a referral?


We receive many referrals from surgeons, sports physicians, rheumatologists, GPs, and other allied health professionals (e.g. podiatrists, osteopaths) including physiotherapy colleagues. However, you do not need a referral to see one of our expert physiotherapists to get started on your journey toward solutions to your current injuries or pain, regardless of whether they are new or chronic.

Would I benefit from a running assessment?

A running screening can benefit anyone from sporadic runners to high performing athletes to reduce their injury risk and ensure that running continues to be enjoyable . We can identify areas that can be limiting your performance and make adaptation to help you reach and exceed your personal best.

What does a running technique assessment involve?

The screening involves an hour appointment. During this session we will have a look at how you move and identify any areas of which lack flexibility or which are weak – the presence of these impairments often lead to injuries during running. Following the screening, we will video your running technique on the treadmill or outside, allowing us to identify any modifications we can make to your technique, to also help minimise your risk of injury, and in some cases improve your performance.

At the conclusion of the screening, we will make recommendations and introduce some strength exercises to help make the adaptations to your running technique and also address any of variations we have found in the screening form.
