ElitRehab, a sport physiotherapy practice in Gothenburg, use running analysis together with functional screening and individual programming to prevent injuries and enhance performance in endurance athletes.
Martin, Susanna, Jonas and Jonas accepted the challenge of becoming Team ElitRehab. They do screening, running analysis and a lot of hard work as they train for an Ironman at the end off the season.
For me, the screening and the support from ElitRehab has been very valuable for spotting my body’s weaknesses. I have gained a better understanding for what I need to strengthen in order to stay injury-free. I feel more controlled in my body and also more secure in my trainingMartin Yttring
The team started by completing functional screening at Elitrehab to evaluate the condition of the body compared to the demands that would be placed on them during the season.
2. Running Analysis
Salming RunLab was the project partner and provided support in the form of running analyses and training equipment. Not many people have had the chance to view their stride in 3D. Everything is covered, from how the foot lands upon impact to how the pelvis rotates when pushing off.
3. Training programme
Based on what we found in the screening and running analysis, all participants were given individual training programmes and all of them had the chance to work on improving body balance.
4. Competition “All the way to the finish line“
When you are training on a high level, you keep pushing your limits in order to be at your best, which means that there’s always a risk of getting worn out or even injured. But if you know that you have done your prehab, completed your basic training and build-up phase and there is someone who can provide feedback about how the body is managing, it becomes easier to be confident about your capacity, allowing you to focus on the right things.
