At the Human Performance Centre we understand that all runners are different. Runners need to run to keep their sanity. Sometimes they struggle to keep their mileage up especially when they are feeling pain. They become very frustrated and begin to believe that maybe their non-running friends are right - perhaps I should stop running?
Human Performance Centre helps runners identify what their problem is and what may have caused it. We treat the condition, help eliminate the cause and make modifications to their running so that they can continue to train while they heal. We get runners back to normal quickly so that they can achieve their fitness and race goals.
We are runners ourselves that have helped hundreds of runners and endurance athletes recover from injury, achieve their goals and prevent further problems. Does a running injury have you sidelined? We can help.
In addition to treating running related problems we can also perform Running Evaluations.
- We begin with a detailed review of your running history, current training program and goals
- We perform a videotape treadmill evaluation along with a biomechanical evaluation to identify muscle imbalances and joint dysfunctions.
- We then analyze the information and develop a report outlining the injury risk factors present in your running style, which may possibly lead to injury or make a preexisting injury worse. Minimizing deficiencies in running gait may also have the positive side effect of improving running efficiency and therefore running performance.
