Do you want to be the best, healthiest runner possible? Recent studies have shown an estimated 65% of all runners will experience an injury annually. These injuries are typically caused by training errors, impaired biomechanics and/or running form and muscle imbalances. Why choose Evolve Physical Therapy + Advanced Wellness? At Evolve, we have a specially-trained, multi-disciplinary staff that focuses on running injuries and performance enhancement. A RunFit Evaluation includes a comprehensive musculoskeletal and video gait analysis to identify a runner's flexibility, joint range of motion, muscular strength, and running pattern. The evaluation will detect injury prone areas and/or gait deficits that can be corrected through individualized training and exercise programs.
Why do I need a video running gait analysis? Generalized strengthening alone has not been shown to improve running mechanics. Gait retraining, using video feedback has been shown to improve running form. Your individualized program will decrease the load and stress to the lower extremities, improve muscle control, and improve overall running efficiency. As a result, you should experience less injuries, faster times, and more enjoyable runs.
Who is a good candidate for a RunFit Evaluation? Everyone! Beginning runners can fix their form and prevent injuries. Veteran runners can improve speed and performance which may result in shaving minutes off of a personal best. First time marathoners can avoid the pitfalls that a 26.2 mile run puts on your body.
Don't allow an injury to keep you from the starting line or the finish line! Contact us today for a RunFit Evaluation.
