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.
Speed - adjustments will improve endurance and speed
Comfort - our physical therapist will address adjustments to relieve shoulder pain, neck pain, back, knees, feet and legs.
Video analysis with PT - Your physical therapist will provide feedback and recommendations during and after run analysis.
Biomechanical evaluation with musculoskeletal evaluation.
Corrective exercises, hands-on treatment and suggested form drills.
Revolutions in Fitness takes a multi-dimensional approach to the treatment and prevention of running injuries. Our Run POP takes two hours and includes:
Biomechanical Screen – looking at movement patterns to determine how your anatomical structure, muscle flexibility & strength may influence the way you run
Running video analysis – assessing factors such as foot strike, knee angle, stride length, leg extension, shoulder position, arm swing, and posture to identify inefficiencies & potential issues.
Our analysis sets the framework for a customized program that includes the appropriate "hands on" treatment as well as individual stretching and strengthening exercises that you can do at home.
