Run Assessment

Therapydia’s Run Assessment is a systematized method used to locate areas of weakness and determine whether your current running movement patterns are putting you at risk of injury. Our Run Assessment can determine whether your technique is compatible with the ability to apply it and we will examine your strengths, weaknesses, and any mechanical challenges involved in allowing running to be more efficient, more enjoyable, and most importantly, injury and pain-free. We also help runners who are experiencing pain improve their strength and teach them methods to prevent future injuries.

Improve Your Mile Times

During your run assessment, you will undergo a thorough exam of strength, flexibility, movement patterns and running form, combining current technology with other assessment techniques. Your run assessment will start with a video run analysis that will give us insight into your current gait and posture and will help us identify any areas that are at risk of injury. We’ll assess how you make your initial contact, how much you shock absorption is placed on your knees as you bend them, and how you toe-off.  For example, if you lean forward 20 degrees or have too much flexion between your knee joint angles, we’ll help you make adjustments to your run form to decrease injuries.

After reviewing the findings with your physical therapist, you will receive a custom assessment and exercise training plan. Whether you’re a competitive athlete looking for the next endurance challenge or brand new to the sport of running, our running assessment is customized for runners of all levels.


Highly recommend Jay, Sabrina or Emily. I got the chance to work with all three therapists and they got me back to running and doing what I love in no time. – Nicole G.

Safely Return To Running

Pavement, trails, and treadmills all impact your joints. Common injuries we’ve seen and treated include: Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Runner’s Knee and Shin Splints.

For runners looking to recover from their running injuries, you will undergo a run assessment and range and motion examination for us to gather your current state. These will act as baselines of your recovery and by the end of your physical therapy treatment, we will assess the improvement in these functional areas. You will be re-screened at the end of your physical therapy treatment to ensure you reach your running goals.

Similar to life’s many potential paths, we will work with you to plan a physical therapy regime that will incorporate multiple methods of treatment which can including manual therapy, yoga, and TRX to get you back to the sport you love.
