Running Mechanics Gait Analysis 

How's your running form?
Are you a heel-striker? Are you an over-pronator?
Are you wearing the right shoes?
Is your running form putting you at risk for an injury?

Running Mechanics Exam

Our team of physical therapists specializing in running biomechanics and running injuries will assess your strength, flexibility, dynamic core stability and perform a video gait analysis using Dartfish® motion analysis software. Physical therapists will analyze data from the running questionnaire, musculoskeletal assessment, and Dartfish® video analysis in order to create a comprehensive results package.
This program is designed for runners and triathletes of all ages and skill levels with the goals of injury prevention and performance enhancement. Our expert analysis can detect faulty running mechanics that may lead to injury as well as identify factors the athlete can modify to train more effectively and to improve running performance.

Cost: Cost for the analysis and comprehensive results package is $200. The fee may be paid with credit card (Visa, MC, Discover) or check at the time of exam.

Additional Services: We also specialize in rehabilitation of running injuries. Insurances accepted.

Location: Parkway Health and Wellness - Three Parkway Building, 1601 Cherry Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102. For an appointment call: 215.553.7012 or email: ptappts@drexel.edu
