Sports Injury Clinic Hadley, MA

Running Assessments

It is our belief that many running injuries are caused by deficiencies in running technique and training errors. Poor running technique can also be an impediment to overall running performance.

Our running assessments begin with a thorough evaluation and analysis of all aspects of a client’s running. This includes posture, technique, strength, flexibility, footwear, and other training factors. We utilize a slow-motion video analysis on a treadmill, looking for any major bilateral differences as well as cadence, foot strike, and body position. From this, together with findings from a musculoskeletal assessment, Our physical therapist provides exercises and instruction to improve technique, strength or flexibility imbalances, and address training errors. Our ultimate goal is to help clients become a more safe and efficient runner.
