Running Performance Evaluation

Joint Ventures’ Running Performance Evaluation was developed to help healthy runners improve their form in order to decrease risk of injury and increase their overall performance.

This program includes three one-hour long sessions with a physical therapist which take place over a 6 week time frame.  

What is the Running Performance Evaluation?

Often specific weaknesses, flexibility concerns, or running mechanical issues can lead to decreased performance, or worse yet, pain. This program is intended to identify and address these impairments and design a corrective program to address them before they become a concern. The corrective program is based on individual need but can consist of corrective strength and flexibility exercises, general strength and conditioning recommendations, or specific running drills to address the client’s individual requirements.

 

Participants receive:

    1)    A 40 minute running exam with a licensed physical therapist that will include an assessment of
           posture, flexibility, and strength, as well as a video running analysis with a slow motion camera
           application.
    2)    A corrective exercise program tailored to your individual needs
    3)    A 40 minute follow-up session that will take place 10 days after the initial evaluation to correct
           form and chart the progress of your individualized program (may include running training).
    4)    A 40 minute final session that will take place 6 weeks after the evaluation and will include a
           second running analysis video, a final training session, and documentation of your progression.
