Running Video Analysis

Running injuries are most often caused by faulty mechanics. Improper running form is compounded over the many miles we run. To help break this cycle and keep you moving, The Running Institute performs a video-based biomechanical computer analysis of your running form to identify any muscle imbalances that cause improper form, injury, and decreased performance. Our experts will offer running form correction to improve performace, as well as recommendations for running shoes and orthotics for your specific running mechanics.

MLS ® Laser Series 5

The MLS® Laser Therapy device transfers light energy to the muscle cells to promote an increase in blood circulation and muscle relaxation. It is indicated for the treatment of pain and muscle spasms, joint stiffness, and arthritis pain. 

Storz D-Actor® 200

The Storz D-Actor® 200 shockwave therapy device uses Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT), which releases high intensity acoustic pressure waves into the target tissue, converting a chronic inflammatory condition into an acute stage, allowing the body to respond by increasing circulation and cellular metabolism around the affected tissue.
