SuperDaveAfter years of on/off injuries i'm pretty certain i'm going to arrange a Biomechanical Assessment probably with Clifton Bradeley at Sub-4 although I am also considering StrideUK in Brighton. I'm in the midlands so Brighton is a bit of a drive though!
I'd be interested to hear if you have ever had such an assessment and did it fix your problems. Who did you use, would you recommend them etc etc. We're not talking a quick jog on a treadmill at your local running shop, but a full allover head to toe video analysis of movement and posture. They seem very expensive but i've probably spent lots more in the last 2 years alone on physio's.
Cheers, i'd be interested to hear your experiences.

Craig_Hi Dave, I came across this the other day - not sure how good or relevant it is but maybe worth a look before splashing the cash - they do a 10-Day free trial. Also, there are loads of videos of youtube looking at different aspects of the Biomechanical Assessment - maybe if you have a video camera you could do a self-assessment first in case it throws up something relatively simple or obvious.

SuperDaveThats quite a good idea. Not suitable for me because I don't have treadmill access, but quite an interesting idea and no doubt helpful for some people.
