First, your practitioner will meet with you to discuss: your history as a runner, your goals, history of previous injuries, and other sports you enjoy/participate in.
Then, you’ll complete a basic functional test. In some cases, orthopedic testing may also be required. The treadmill assessment will be completed both with and without shoes to better understand your gait.
While the assessment is underway, your practitioner will provide some advice about your cadence, cueing, shoe wear, running programs, etc.
Following the assessment, your practitioner may prescribe specific exercises you should complete or cover some running drill training.
You’ll have the opportunity to schedule subsequent follow-ups for ongoing injury rehab, if so desired.
