Runners' Clinic

Do you enjoy running?

Whatever your motivation, running is one of the most natural forms of exercise.  Yet, each year 25-50% of recreational runners sustain an injury bad enough to alter training.  While the vast majority of injuries (80-85%) can be attributed to training errors (too much, too fast, too soon), the way we run can have a profound impact as well.


We have seen the enemy and it is excessive force!  

Imagine a sledge hammer that weighs 3-4 times your body weight (450 to 600lbs for a 150lb person); now imagine taking that sledge hammer and striking the bottom of your feet 160 times per minute or more.  It is truly amazing what the human body is capable of withstanding.  The goal of current running science is simply to reduce these forces without increasing energy cost.  It turns out that very small changes in running form can yield major decreases in musculoskeletal stress.

Confused about all the different advice?

Motion control shoe or barefoot, heel or forefoot strike, Chi or Pose, pronator or supinator?  Physical Therapy at Studio X now offers a Runners’ Clinic that is specifically designed to cut through all the noise and deliver results.  Whether you have been running for years or are just starting out, our team of professionals led by our in-house physical therapist will provide expert examination and treatment of your running-related concerns. We will work with you to help you achieve your running goals.  Runners of all ages and levels are welcome!  Please visit our website or contact Jay Salzman for more information 503-236-7114
