+ Steps toward your success
Step 1: Identify the problems. A thorough examination and evaluation of the musculoskeletal system is performed to identify problem areas. This will include your running posture, strength, power, stability, and mobility along with the gait evaluation.
Step 2: Correct the running technique. Decrease the stress on injured tissues. Some changes, if necessary, can be made immediately. Your pain can stop or be decreased immediately with minor changes. You may wish to schedule other 30 minute follow-up technique training sessions.
Step 3: Do your homework. A home exercise program will address limitations of strength and mobility that are contributing to your injury. You may wish to schedule other 30-60 minute follow-up training sessions for tune-ups, recovery, injury treatment, running posture correction, strengthening, power work, stabilization and mobility improvement.
