Return to Running
Starting a running routine or returning to running after an injury or time off requires a gradual, calculated approach to improve the likelihood of continuous progress while reducing injury risk. The best plan is one that is multifaceted and addresses biomechanics, range of motion, muscle and joint function, and planning appropriate training. Your running evaluation will include an orthopaedic and biomechanical screen and running video analysis of posture, stability, mobility, and cadence to make you a better, more efficient, and durable runner. We may issue exercises to correct muscle imbalances. An initial run/walk or run progression will be prescribed based on your athletic experience, injury history, and goals. We will then give input on how to proceed to a training program, building mileage, speed, and race-specific fitness that will allow you to reach your fitness and performance goals.
