NEW For Runners: Gait Analysis
Strengthening is very important for runners, but strengthening activates different parts of our brain than skill training. If a runner wants to address their running-related injuries, they must really look at how they are running. We have a Certified Running Gait Analyst on staff, who can perform a 2D analysis that allows us to examine your running form using a slower frame-rate video. We'll show you, with your own body and gait as our model, how to make changes to your running to be more efficient and stay injury-free. Contact us today for your runner’s evaluation!
We also perform a pre-running screen that looks at the stability and mobility at your joints so that we can develop a home exercise program to address your concerns. We also discuss shoes and your training logs to see if there are any modifications that are needed from there as well.
AN EMPOWERED RUNNER
"After rehabilitating from a knee injury, I decided it was beneficial to my running to have a gait analysis to figure out how best to further prevent injury and strengthen my running. Rachel was absolutely wonderful to work with. Everything was explained clearly and she knew exactly what she was talking about. After recording my run, she took me through her findings so that I could understand where my weaknesses lay and we discussed how best to improve them. After 2 sessions, and learning some seriously awesome tips, my running not only feels more efficient but I’m stronger and happier on my runs now, and am going into my upcoming half marathon with real confidence. Thank you Rachel!"
