Have you ever wonder what your form looked like while you are running? Do you have nagging injuries that jumps from spot to spot? Are you having trouble improving your times despite running harder? Sounds like you will benefit from a running analysis. A running analysis looks at your form and compares it to what is considered optimal form. It is a tool to help screen and assess for injuries. Joint angles that are different from normal signifies weakness of certain muscles and/or tightness of joints. The weakness and tightness change your running stride leading to injury. Stretches, exercises and running techniques are prescribed to correct those deviations from the information gathered. By bringing you closer to optimal running form, it will decrease injury and improve performance.
