Running miles on top of an imbalanced structure increases your injury risk.

The Rehab Lab’s flagship RUNFREE program aims to rapidly speed up this process by getting your running form professionally evaluated. This takes the guesswork out of the picture.

In a running assessment, The Rehab Lab team will identify the weakest links in the kinetic chain and the areas where you may be placing excessive load.

The team will teach you to minimize and modify this load, as well as evaluate your running program and align it to fit with an appropriate rehabilitation program.

Singapore Athletics has appointed The Rehab Lab (TRL) as its Official Physiotherapy Partner from 1st August 2020 to 31st July 2021. TRL specialises in enabling every individual to move stronger and pain-free at their fullest potential.
