Biomechanical assessments are used in combination with a thorough musculoskeletal evaluation to address injury and performance issues. During the initial evaluation, patients receive:
History and running program review
Orthopedic examination (i.e., flexibility, strength, balance, skeletal alignment, foot structure)
Video analysis (below) of running mechanics
Treatment plan development, as appropriate
All tests and findings will be reviewed with you immediately following the examination. If necessary, a treatment program will be implemented, with follow-up options discussed. Your treatment program could consist of therapeutic exercises, manual interventions and guidelines for a progressive return to your prior running level. Modification to your running form also might be recommended to correct adverse running mechanics.
Injury-related evaluations and services are billed to your insurance company. Costs can range from $120 to $480, depending on the services provided. Please contact your insurance company to verify your coverage.
