The forefoot versus heel strike debate

A critical review of foot strike pattern by our colleague in Brighton- Tom Goome (click on link below).  This review looks at one aspect of gait re-training. There are many other aspects that need to be addressed, and this is only one part of improving your gait pattern.  

Due to the expertise and close working relationships with our resident physios at Manor Clinic, TRS Kent can determine what the correct strike pattern is for you rather than slavishly get our athletes/patients to adopt a forefoot strike. We also work at different speeds and conditions to help our athletes adapt as they need to. The way we adapt your running may not mean a change in foot strike pattern, but will change the way you move the rest of your body.
