The Runner's Clinic

 

Our Runner's Clinic Goals:

The Runner's Clinic is designed to provide a comprehensive approach to improving running performance and injury prevention. Patients can expect an individualized plan incorporating:

  •  A thorough assessment incorporating a functional movement screen, assessment of lower extremity strength and flexibility
  • Video gait analysis assessment
  • Instruction in corrective exercise to target asymmetries  and weakness to enhance power and endurance needed for running
  • Education in gait re-training to optimizing efficiency, improve form and decrease the risk of injury
  • Shoe, training, and nutrition recommendations

 

Who

This clinic is geared towards the non-injured or previously, but not currently, injured runner. Beginners to elite runners are welcomed! Currently injured runners may benefit best from seeking more traditional physical therapy that also includes a thorough assessment for more emphasis on the treatment of symptoms. Please contact Taylor Physical Therapy to set up your appointment. You can still request to be seen by our running specialist!

Cost
