Specialty Running Services

Every year I would develop hip and thigh injuries towards the middle of the training year. Ever since starting my work with Eric in 2015 I was able to PR my half-marathon and marathon time and qualify for the 2016 US Olympic Marathon Trials, all within 9 1/2 months. He improved my running mechanics, treated my aches, and made me a stronger, more resilient runner with his comprehensive strength training program. This gain in strength allowed me to better tolerate my coach’s training program and make the most out of those workouts.

The objective of our running services is to identify strength deficits, mobility inefficiencies, flexibility issues, and mechanical running flaws that may be the source of pain, lead to long-term injury, or reduce your running efficiency.  Correcting all of these flaws can lead to faster run paces, pain-relief, uninterrupted training from injury, and overall enhancement of the joy of running.  These services are for any runner looking to: 

  • recover from an injury

  • prevent injuries from occurring

  • find answers to nagging or recurring injuries

  • improve their performance

Runner’s Injury Prevention & Performance Assessment

You will undergo a series of tests performed by an expert in anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, and pathomechanics that will identify movement, strength, flexibility, and coordination issues that can hinder your running performance and/or set you up for an injury.

Immediately after testing, you will receive custom and specific corrective exercises and treatment recommendations that will accurately address your deficiencies.

Run Form Coaching w/ Video Analysis

Your running form will be analyzed with slow motion video analysis. Inefficiencies will be identified, and you will be coached on how to correct them.

 

Neither of these services is a treatment session for an injury. If you have an existing injury, you must schedule a physical therapy examination. We have two options of varying length--Complete Care Evaluation (60 minutes) or Quick Injury Consultation (30 minutes).
