New 6-week Track, Trail & Tarmac Knee Stability Challenge

By 16th April 2018 News No Comments

Runners Knee challenge artwork May 2018Following the success of our Track, Trail & Tarmac, Introduction to Running and Kickstart your Glutes challenges, our therapists at Newcastle Sports Injury Clinic have designed a new challenge to develop stability, strength around the knee for runners. Whether you are an experienced runner, looking to get back into running or start running for the very first time, our Track, Trail & Tarmac – 6-week Knee Stability Challenge will help you address factors that lead to imbalance and instability around the knee in runners.

With over 20 years’ experience in treating running injuries at our clinics, it is evident to our therapists that there are many key exercises and drills that will benefit runners and triathletes and if performed on a regular basis will help keep the knee free from injury.  However, we have found that often runners simply don’t do this type of training.  Without it, they’re left more susceptible to injury and many don’t manage to reach their goals!

Throughout the 6-week challenge our specialist therapists will provide you with a specific 10-15-minute set of targeted techniques, drills and exercises, which have been chosen to develop a more robust runner.

Each week you will attend a 1-hour class here we will monitor your progress, guide you on performing the daily exercises and answer any questions you may have along the way.  The focus of the exercises will change as your running progresses.

We will cover the following throughout the course of the challenge:

Screening Tests
Mobility and Control
Isolated Strength and Stability
Functional Strength
Running Form
We will also work with you as an individual and provide personalised recommendations for exercises and techniques that will benefit your own running style.

Our Track, Trail & Tarmac 6-week Knee Stability Challenge will be held at our Newcastle city centre clinic on Saville Place from Thursday, 10th May 2018 at 6.30pm, and will run each week until Thursday, 10th June 2018. 

Due to the personalised nature of this challenge, class sizes are limited, we highly recommend that you book early to secure your place and avoid disappointment.   Our Track, Trail & Tarmac, 6-week Knee Stability Challenge is available at a cost of £50 inclusive.  Please contact 0191 2330500 for further information and/or to book your place on the challenge*.

We look forward to seeing you in class and helping you with your Track, Trail & Tarmac journey.
