Young woman running

Whether you are a novice runner or a pro we have the expertise to help take your running to the next level.

Comprehensive Musculoskeletal Evaluation

Everyone’s structural design is unique and your structure dictates function.  We take into consideration all the elements of your unique biomechanics to find the best plan to improve your running performance or to ensure an effective recovery from running injuries.

Comprehensive Flexibility Assessment

We study your body to identify the muscle-tendon and myofascial restrictions.  Often times these restrictions and flexibility imbalances result from:

  • Posture
  • Poor lower extremity alignment
  • Flat feet or excessive foot pronation
  • Structural asymmetries including leg length discrepancies
  • Core muscle weakness
  • Growth spurts
  • Overtraining
  • Previous injuries including ankle sprains and muscle strains

Core Testing

Our core testing consists of 8 specific core strength and enduring tests.

Video Gait Analysis:

  • Assesses spine posture and pelvic control
  • Analyzes foot pronation-supination sequence
  • Identifies overstriding, foot touchdown position, shoulder girdle mechanics/arm swing
  • Assesses cadence and breathing patterns
  • Determines the effectiveness of current shoes and/or if foot orthotics in providing adequate shock absorbency and motion control.
