If you are a local Christchurch runner, you are warmly invited to visit us at the clinic on Tuesday, 11th July, to access free running advice from a range of experts.
Alexandra Sports will be on-site with their 3D scanner & pressure mapping technology.
Using this fantastic piece of kit, they will be offering 3D assessments and 3D insoles, as well as advice on running gait and footwear. Alexandra Sports is the first running store in the UK to use FitStation, a revolutionary volumental scanner that accurately measures and produces a 3D image of your foot. Measuring length, width, volume and arch height helps determine which footwear and insole options are most suited for you. Time slots for free foot scanning can be booked in advance.
Our sports massage therapist Nathan will offer advice on the benefits of sports massage for pre- and post-running events.
Free 15-minute sports massage taster sessions will be available with Nathan, which can be booked in advance.
Chiropractor Aaron Coode and musculoskeletal outpatients and hydrotherapy specialist Josephine Garofalides will be giving advice on staying ‘fit to run’.
They will also be giving advice on common running injuries, including Achilles pain, plantar fasciitis, knee and hip pain. 10 min ‘open chats’ will be available and can be booked before the event, so you can secure a time slot that works for you.
Physiotherapist Paul O’Connell will be running demonstrations on Shockwave therapy treatment.
Shockwave therapy is particularly effective for chronic soft tissue conditions like plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinopathy. Stimulating the body’s natural healing process, it can deliver an immediate reduction of pain and improve ease of movement.
This drop-in event is completely free and runs from 5.30 pm – 8 pm on Tuesday, 11th July, so pop it in your diary. Whether you are an experienced runner or just getting into the sport, come along and speak to the experts.
