Frustrated with the constant battle of Knee problems?
The Knee is a fantastic, complex joint, which deserves to be cared for, especially by those of us who run! The Knee is the most common site of injury, accounting for 29% of all injuries suffered by runners. This can be for a number of reasons but if you continue to ignore it and don't tackle the issue, it may hamper future performances and perhaps become even more serious. Common causes of knee injuries in runners are poor running technique, inefficient running gait, wrong footwear or repetitive strain. There are many more factors which can lead to knee injuries and this is why it's important to have a full, accurate assessment, to find the root cause of the problem. Most of the time it is something very simple and can be rectified very quickly, but in other cases it can take much longer and that's why, here at GSST, we pride ourselves in our thorough assessments where we look into every aspect of the individual, anatomically and biomechanically. At GSST, we have access to state of the art biomechanics technology where we can accurately assess running technique and running gait. Results from the analysis can help us correct the abnormalities in your running, therefore improving performance and reducing risk of injury. Who else can offer you a more in depth, accurate assessment, totally individualised for you?
The Knee, a vital joint for the function of everyday life. The strain a knee joint is put through everyday is huge and its only multiplied when we run. This is why we need to look after them, and issues should not be ignored and put to one side. Pain killers are not the option, this only masks the issue and further damage will inevitably be suffered. Here at GSST we believe strongly in finding the root cause of the issue, no matter what the injury, and correcting it so future injuries do not occur and hopefully you'll never have to come see us again! Many therapists you will see will simply treat the injury to remove undesirable symptoms. They do this because it initially makes you feel great, 'WaHoo I'm fixed', however, 2 months later, the injury creeps back and you then go back to see the therapist. Unfortunately, this is common place within the industry but here at GSST we don't want to see you again! We want to correct the problem which has caused the injury. By doing this, you can continue to train and achieve your goals, injury free! We earn our money by being honest and giving the best possible treatments to every individual that comes to see us. That's the promise we make to every one of our patients at GSST. You only have to ask our previous patients to get an idea of how we operate and what we can deliver to you. You can achieve whatever you want to achieve. We merely help you along your path, treat, find and correct the root cause of the injury and educate you on how to remain injury free in the future.
