A running assessment will examine the weaknesses, strengths, and any mechanical challenges that may impact the efficiency or overall enjoyment from running. During the assessment, your therapist will be able to observe any improper running techniques or biomechanical asymmetries, from head to toe, that may be causing or lead to pain or injury.
Evidence suggests that a runner’s technique or form can dictate their speed, efficiency, and the amount of pain that develops, which could lead to poor performance or injury.
Running Assessments analyze factors such as:
- Swing Time
- Step Time
- Stride Length
- Weight Distribution
- Pronation (The way your foot rolls upon impact)
