Running Analysis

Benefits of our running analysis program

The running analysis program offered at the Ivy Rehab Network is designed to cater to anyone who wants to improve their running performance. This doesn’t just apply to athletes and lifelong runners looking to improve their personal records or run longer distances. Patients who suffer from lower extremity injuries such as the knee, leg, hip, ankle or foot pain can benefit, as well.

As our feet strike the ground while we walk or run, forces from the ground reciprocally act back on our bodies. These impactful forces to the musculoskeletal system can result in wear and tear of the joints, muscles, and ligaments and contribute to injury development while causing pain in already tender areas.

The running analysis program at the Ivy Rehab Network offers unique, state-of-the-art methodologies for analyzing your gait patterns, correcting the way you’re running, and allowing you to run or walk with less painful ground reaction forces. The running analysis program includes thorough gait analysis, high tech slow-motion video evaluation, and dedicated one-on-one attention from a specially-trained physical therapist. Each running analysis program is unique as it will be designed specifically for your condition, training, and goals. In addition, select clinics will use an antigravity treadmill system as part of a rehabilitation program in order to reduce the amount of weight that your lower extremities are supporting as you walk or run.

Conditions that can be treated as part of the running analysis program include, but are not limited to:

  • Knee pain
  • Low back pain
  • Hip pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Lower extremity tendinitis
  • Ankle injuries
  • Foot injuries
  • Iliotibial band injuries
  • Shin splints
  • Stress fractures
