Your pursuit of better running performance and a healthier lifestyle is a journey we are thrilled to accompany you on. Our Running Assessment service at our physical therapy clinic is meticulously crafted to guide runners in mastering an efficient technique, improving performance, and preventing injuries. Running is a complex physical activity that requires the perfect blend of muscle strength, joint mobility, and correct posture. Our seasoned team of physical therapists combines expertise, modern technology, and a deep understanding of biomechanics to help you achieve your running goals, be it conquering marathons or enjoying a serene morning jog.
A significant part of our assessment is introducing runners to the Pose Method® of Running, a systematic approach to improving your running technique. The Pose Method® simplifies the complexity of the running movement, focusing on three key positions to enhance running efficiency, reduce impact on joints, and decrease the risk of injury. Our service integrates the principles of the Pose Method® in analyzing and refining your running form.
