Running and Podiatry at Quay Health Sydney

A Podiatrist can prevent injuries before they start. If your suffering  early signs of shin, arch, calf, heel, ball of foot, hamstring, knee, hip or back pain (pre or post run) a podiatrist can help.  A podiatrist will do a thorough examination of your foot health and function.  Diagnosing and treating running injuries requires expert analysis by a professional podiatrist to find the cause of the injury and go beyond simply treating the symptoms.  Orthotics customised to your individual foot imbalance helps many runners suffering from pain.  Orthotics will transfer pressure more evenly through your feet, making the runner more comfortable and efficient throughout the race. The orthotics aid in “offloading” potential or injured lower limb structures. Quay Health recommend only the best and use well designed and manufactured 3D digital orthotics (www.cadenceorthotics.com.au).  Running a P.B now can become a reality!

Knee and Running Assessments are also available from Quay Health, utilising ViMove Technology. Video running assessments are recommended for all runners before embarking on an increased training load. ViMove™ is a wireless sensor technology that objectively measures human movement and turns it into actionable data. Wearable motion and muscle activity sensors record data at 200 frames per second. During flexion, what’s the breakdown between pelvic movement and lumbar spine movement? How do athletes progress from repetition to repetition? How about when they’re fresh vs. fatigued? ViMove provides visual, objective, easily interpreted data to improve your assessments, prevent and manage injuries, and document therapy progress for athletes.
