Therapydia physical therapists understand your passion for running and are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. Our Run Assessment is a systematic method for determining whether or not your movement patterns are correlated with known evidence for injury, and whether you demonstrate any mechanics that predispose you to injury. Run and biomechanical assessments can determine whether a runner’s choice of technique is compatible with the ability to apply it. It can determine the strengths, weaknesses, and mechanical challenges involved in allowing running to be more efficient, more enjoyable, and most importantly, injury and pain-free. We work with every runner on a comprehensive running assessment designed to identify running mechanics that may predispose a runner to injury and to create a custom plan to address any altered mechanics. We also help runners who are experiencing pain from overuse of muscles gain by improving their strength and teaching them methods to prevent future injuries.
During your run assessment, you will undergo a thorough exam of strength, flexibility, movement patterns and running form, combining current technology with other assessment techniques. Your run assessment will start with a HD video run analysis that will give us insight into your current gait and posture and will help us identify any areas that are at risk of injury. After reviewing findings with your physical therapist, you will receive a personalized assessment and training plan. Whether you’re competitive athlete looking for the next endurance challenge, or brand new to the sport of running, our running assessment is customized for runners of all levels.
