A recent article on the Wall Street Journal discusses the relationship between “common runners injuries” and how those runners move. “Increasingly, the runner’s road to healthy joints starts with gait analysis”, writes Matthew Futterman, Wall Street Jounal reporter.
Some people claim that running is bad for you and your joints. This is not true- running incorrectly can be bad for you and your joints. Runners often have inefficient running due to weakness or range of motion restrictions that can lead to low back pain, achilles tendinitis, IT band syndrome and plantar fascitis, just to name a few. Almost always, the cause of these conditions is related to how a person is running.
The thorough running (gait) analysis and form correction, combined with a personalized performance plan can help you eliminate and prevent running injuries as well as make you perform better.
