The Injury Clinic

Your body is a complete, communicative unit – even when it’s in pain and/or locked into a particular shape. Your bony framework is linked together with joints, providing the potential for effective, efficient, comfortable movement.

Now whilst the subject of human biomechanics is endlessly complex, we can conceptualise it into elegant simplicity merely by swapping the word ‘joints’ for ‘doors’. If all those ‘doors’ throughout your body were wide open, you’d be collapsed to the floor with no integrity to your structural strength. On the other hand, if all your ‘doors’ were closed tight, you’d be rooted to the spot – all structural strength but no movement…

Perpetual Forward Motion Run Coaching

Whether you’re at the beginning of your running journey, or looking to improve your running efficiency and generate more speed for no more effort, and protect yourself from common running injuries, or get off the running plateau you’ve landed on, the unravelling of unhelpful movement patterns always start in clinic. I have no idea yet why you’re moving as you currently are, and to be able to most effectively help you with any of the above, I need to understand your body better. If we measure everything that’s happening, we only need to do it once…

I’m Helen Hall, biomechanics analyst, author, runner and coach and my passion is to understand and teach biomechanically efficient motion. Using the latest in movement science and gait analysis technology I help people find solutions for their pain and injuries and teach people to run with more speed for less effort incurring fewer injuries in the process. I call it Perpetual Forward Motion and I’ve written a book about it called ‘Even With Your Shoes On – The Running Shift’.

My motto is “If you think you can do it – you probably can.”
