Many injuries we see are caused by poor biomechanics. A large portion of runners, for example, experience an injury at some point in their running life. Many of those injuries are the result of training errors and/or poor running mechanics.

During your assessment, your running technique will be evaluated, and you will receive recommendations that will help you improve your technique and help you reach your goals – whether it be to improve your speed, begin to run, return to run after an injury or just simply prevent future injures. A running assessment will benefit any level of runner from the beginner all the way up to the seasoned marathoner.
