In pain, looking for treatments to improve your fitness and running performance - visit our Cardiff, South Wales based sports injury clinic.

Whether you are an enthusiastic jogger, treadmiller, sprinter or long distance runner – amateur or professional – all runners will at some time experience an injury or condition that prevents them running at their personal best - or at all.

The majority of injuries facing the runner are caused as a result of the repetitive nature of running and is often associated with the strongest force experienced by a runner - the "shock" caused by the heel striking the ground.

Many of the joints in the lower body reduce this "shock" absorbing the shock rather than transferring it further up the body.

At the Optimal Swing Clinic we assist runners to prevent running injuries by ensuring the proper alignment of the spine and pelvis. The most common running-related injuries include:

  • Shin splints
  • Ankle sprains
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • IT band syndrome
  • Runner's knee
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Stress fractures
  • Hip bursitis

Our passion for sport has led us to become experts in diagnosing and treating the underlying causes of running related pain or discomfort.
