Running Analysis

Integrating Clinical Expertise with State of the Art Technology

It is estimated that 65-85% of all runners are injured every year, sidelining them from achieving their goals in health, wellness and competition...Don't Become A Statistic!

The Running Analysis is a comprehensive biomechanical assessment designed to give runners, from novice to competitive, a full understanding of their running form.  Runners like you utilize this analysis to identify biomechanical tendencies that contribute to injury and affect running economy (i.e. performance efficiency.)  

Faulty movement patterns when you run can lead to overuse of bone, joints, tendons, ligaments and muscle. Overuse patterns can lead to pain and loss of performance. Research shows that gaining strength and flexibility do not automatically correlate to a positive change in how you run. The Running Analysis gives us an in-depth breakdown of your running form. It provides us with vital information about how your running form is contributing to current injury, loss of performance efficiency, and/or the potential risk of injury or re-injury. Understanding your faulty movement patterns during running is a major step in recovering from or preventing injury, as well as improving performance.

The Running Analysis is comprised of multiple state-of-the-art technologies utilized to assess running gait in our lab.  A specialized treadmill is utilized to measure force, time, step and spatial parameters.  High-speed video motion analyses are performed to assess your biomechanical tendencies associated with running mechanics and to break down your specific running mechanics.  The analysis takes about two hours. With the information gathered from The Running Analysis a complete plan can be set out executed to help you achieve your running goals.
