Alter-G

This anti-gravity treadmill was developed from NASA technology. It allows for a reduction of stress and impact on your legs and joints. This treadmill is not only for rehabilitating injuries, but also for supplemental training to prevent injury.

Biomechanics

Our rehabilitation specialists are specifically trained to evaluate runners. We can assess your dynamic movement patterns, conduct strength and flexibility testing, screen for pelvic and leg length asymmetries and perform balance testing. After a thorough assessment, we can develop a creative functional strength and exercise program to address any deficits that were found.

High-speed motion capture and video analysis of your running form from different angles is also available. This information can be used to identify concerns that affect your running efficiency and that may predispose you to injury. Recommendations are customized to meet your specific needs. Biomechanics assessments are $250.
