Running Strong: Video Analysis, Running Re-education and Strength and Power Program for Runners
What is it?
A 4 session program to improve your running and decrease your chance of injury.
What is it composed of?
- Detailed analysis of your running history and programming to find predictors of injury
- High Speed Camera (240 frames/second) analysis of your running form
- Detailed functional evaluation of your physical function designed to find weak links
- Custom created corrective exercise and performance based exercise program including 3 follow up sessions
Is it covered by insurance?
Yes. I am both a physiotherapist and chiropractor. Each session can be billed separately and our rates are well within the normal fees charged for regular physiotherapy sessions
$400.00 for the initial 1 hour session plus 3 follow up sessions.
The timeframe is surprisingly flexible. Some people need a follow up session within a week of the initial evaluation. Others might need a follow-up session within 3 weeks. Having this flexible time frame allows us to tailor the program to your needs.
Can I work with my existing coach or personal trainer?
Absolutely. In fact, this is encouraged. I regularly work with running or triathlon coaches to create safer and better training programs. If you already work with a personal trainer we can speak with your trainer about encorporating the running performance program into your existing exercise sessions.
I am physiotherapist and chiropractor with a MSc in Exercise/Spine Biomechanics. I have published more than 20 peer-reviewed academic papers on exercise science and injury. I regular work with runners and multisport athletes from beginner's to Olympic athletes. I currently write injury prevention articles for Triathlon Canada. I am also an instructor with therunningclinic.ca - Canada's, if not the World's, leading course on the prevention and treatment of running injuries. Last, I am the clinical director of Medcan's Run Well 3D Kinematic Analysis Program for Running Injuries.
