Running retraining involves an assessment of running gait, followed by a gradual introduction of cues (such as listening to the sound of your feet hitting the ground) to modify and improve running gait. Running retraining is often used in sporting environments, as it is an effective way of improving performance and modifying biomechanics of running gait that may be contributing to lower limb injury. 


The podiatrists at Fitzroy Foot and Ankle Clinic regularly assess running gait when it may be the cause of an injury, and use running retraining as a part of a comprehensive management plan. Running retraining is great for managing:

  • Patello-femoral (knee-cap) pain

  • Ilio-tibial band pain

  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)

  • Achilles tendon pain

  • Shin splints

Running retraining should be considered for people who have:

  • a running related injury

  • are interested in improving their running performance

  • are just starting to run and would like advice 

The podiatrists at Fitzroy Foot and Ankle Clinic have undertaken further education on running retraining and gait assessment. For more information on running retraining call the Clinic on 03 9485 8000 or book online.
