Spaulding’s RunStrong Program is an injury prevention program that incorporates a detailed evaluation, including video analysis, to assess a runner’s gait, muscle strength, flexibility and posture. The evaluation is designed for any runner, from beginners to ultra-marathoners. Our thorough evaluation allows us to construct an individually tailored exercise and training program, which may include recommendations for running form. We educate the runner in how to run safely, avoid injury, and achieve his or her goals. In the RunStrong Program, you will be seen by a licensed physical therapist credentialed in injury prevention through Spaulding’s National Running Center. We ultimately strive to help runners reach maximum potential and prevent time loss due to injury.
Approach to Care
Our primary goal in the RunStrong Program is to keep you injury-free so you can reach your goals. As physical therapists, we are well aware of the injuries that runners sustain, and what caused them in the first place. Our thorough evaluation allows us to pinpoint issues that may lead to injuries, and to address these issues BEFORE they become an injury. Whether it’s due to muscle imbalances, improper form, or just an improper training regimen, we will provide guidance and exercise to keep you running safely.
Leadership and Expertise
All of our practitioners are not only licensed physical therapists, but have all undergone additional training and testing through the Spaulding National Running Center, obtaining credentialed status in RunStrong injury prevention. We are all passionate about what we do, and collaborate with each other regularly to keep up to date on the latest research and treatment approaches.
