Runchatlive Gait Analysis Presentations at Therapy Expo 2023


A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Gait Analysis presentations at THERAPY EXPO at the Birmingham NEC on the 22nd & 23rd of November, 2023.

For those of you have yet to attend Therapy Expo, it is a marvellous two day event of multidisciplinary training & CPD education with particular focus on areas such as musculoskeletal medicine, sports injuries and neurorehabilitation, as well as the latest innovations in practice & business management skills.

Gait Analysis Theory & Practical Presentations

As well as hosting two days of presentations in the STA Update Theatre at Therapy Expo (Matt Phillips is host of the Sports Therapy Association Podcast), Matt gave two presentations, with Siddharth Hans, Co-Founder of GaitOn Motion Analysis Systems.


Following a fantastic two days of presenting in Therpay Expo 2023 at the Birmingham NEC, we are very excited to announce new dates & locations for our hybrid course: ‘Gait Analysis For Runners: A Modern Approach’.

Brought to you in association with ‘The ST School‘, we will be bringing the course to EXETER, BIRMINGHAM and MANCHESTER in 2024, and are considering other locations based on demand we have received.

        Who Is The Course For?

        • Therapists, coaches & trainers with no experience in Gait Analysis but are thinking of offering a new service to their running clients.
        • Current providers of Gait Analysis who wish to update the service they offer.

        What Is A Modern Approach To Gait Analysis ?

        Gait Analysis can be a hugely beneficial tool for runners, but often not for the reasons we are traditionally taught. Despite the popular use of Gait Analysis to screen runners for ‘biomechanical flaws’ to reduce running related injury and/or increase running performance, the success of such is often hit & miss. The fact that so many runners still get injured (or re-injured) is testimony to this.

        In this course, running injury & performance specialist Matt Phillips of guides participants through all of the traditional elements of Gait Analysis, but also draws upon research to highlight the limitations of a solely ‘biomechanical’ approach. Participants are then introduced to other ways that we can use a gait analysis service to help runners recovery from injury, reduce risk of future injury, and optimise performance.
