Running Analysis — Revolutionize your Speed/Efficiency


Although it is often thought of as a simple activity, running is one of the more complex activities that our bodies can perform. Running requires complex movement patterns across multiple joints and muscles in our bodies. These movement patterns are performed in all three planes of motion, with each joint and muscle's movement dependent on the muscles and joints above and below it.

It is estimated that 65% of all runners experience running-related injuries each year. When you run with specific strength and flexibility, you can run with optimal speed and efficiency while avoiding recurrent injuries, pain and discomfort. Since pain & symptoms in one area can be influenced by the muscles and joints above and below that area, the cause of the symptom could lie in a different area than the pain.

Revolutions in Fitness takes a multi-dimensional approach to the treatment and prevention of running injuries. Our running assessments encompass a range of evaluations and analysis, including:

  • Running history – includes evaluation of both previous and current injuries
  • Biomechanical assessment – includes a gait analysis to determine how your anatomical structure, muscle flexibility & strength may influence the way you run
  • Body & foot structure analysis – evaluates joint integrity and foot biomechanics.
  • Running video analysis – assesses factors such as foot strike, knee angle, stride length, leg backswing, shoulder position, arm swing, and posture to identify inefficiencies & potential issues.

Our comprehensive evaluation sets the framework for a customized program that includes the appropriate direct "hands on" treatment as well as some individual stretching exercises that you can do at home.

The bottom line – our running analysis can help you achieve your short and long term rehabilitation, fitness and wellness goals.
