Runner's Advantage

Runner’s Advantage is a performance clinic designed specifically for runners.  It combines a comprehensive video gait analysis, physical therapy evaluation and a dynamic exercise program to keep runners healthy and strong.  Whether you are just learning to run or striving for your next PR, we have the tools, expertise and experience to work with you to achieve success.

Our comprehensive running clinics are for novice through elite runners to:

  • Overcome injury
  • Run stronger
  • Enhance performance
  • Prevent injury

Our running clinic utilizes video gait analysis which allows us to quickly and thoroughly assess your running mechanics with industry-leading software.  Freeze frame analysis, joint angle measurement, and slow-motion playback are just a few of the tools we use to assess your cadence, form and running efficiency.  

Based on your video findings, we can determine whether form, strength, flexibility, or a combination of these factors is a cause of injury or lack of performance.  We can then incorporate runner-specific exercise and modify your training to minimize or eliminate these deficits. You will leave your first session with a thorough understanding of your running mechanics and a strategy to implement on your next run.  

 

Above is a sample of a video gait analysis that is used to diagnose cause of injury and educate runners about their form.
