 Our Physiotherapists will also educate you in exercises to correct any muscle imbalances identified, and to assist in your successful transition to mid-foot running style.Most running injuries result from progressing your running too quickly.  Our running assessments include coaching on how to progress your running program safely, whether you are a seasoned runner, new to the sport, or returning from an injury.High tech, highly cushioned, supportive footwear has not reduced the incidence of running injuries.  As part of your running assessment, you will learn which shoes will maximize your mid-foot running performance and minimize injury. 

Whether you are new to running, a seasoned runner, or returning from an injury, our Physiotherapists' goal is to get you to the finish line faster.

The incidence of running related injuries is more than 50% for North Americans.

WHAT TO DO PRIOR TO GAIT ASSESSMENT.


 Bring your current runners and an older pair of used runners (if possible) to show wear patterns. Include insoles or current orthotics used as well.

Wear tighter clothing or shorts to allow for ease of testing, assessment, and measuring purposes.
