Biomechanics: what can go wrong – and how to correct it

“The biggest single cause of injury in running sports”

Physiotherapist Mark Buckingham from Performance Team ( was one of the speakers at the recent ‘Running Special‘ evening at Giant Store St. Paul’s. With over 25 years of experience treating Elite athletes at Olympic level, he outlines why Biomechanics is the single biggest cause of running injuries.

This short video not only explains why – but provides insight, tips and practical approaches to try and improve your own weaknesses in this area, and thus reduce your time on the treatment table!

Mark has attended two Olympic Games as Team GB’s physiotherapist, as well as all the major athletics championships.

He specialises in solving musculo-skeletal issues in runners, especially those issues that have been difficult to resolve for many months or years. Mark’s athlete testimonials from a host of the UK’s best athletes speak volumes, as does his six month waiting list for appointments at his practice.
