Runner’s Clinic

What is the Runner’s Clinic?

The Runner’s Clinic is an adjunct service that is offered by select physical therapists at Aligned Orthopedic & Sports Therapy who have a special interest in running. During your course of physical therapy, you will also have dedicated sessions focusing specifically on running and your physical therapy goals.

How Does the Runner’s Clinic Work?

A session begins with an evaluation by one of our physical therapists who have a special interest in running and the treatment and prevention of running injuries. During the session, the therapist will assess body mechanics, joint range of motion, strength, and flexibility. If you are currently recovering from an injury, your therapist will also perform an evaluation of that injury. 

Your therapist will then assess your running mechanics, looking both at your static and dynamic form. At that time, he/she will work with you to determine a customized treatment program to help maximize your mechanics and performance to decrease your risk of injury.
