Pioneer Valley On The Move
Physical Therapy Evaluations consist of a thorough, detailed evaluation of your injury/pain to find the origin of the issue. Physical Therapy Treatments consist primarily of exercise/movement based therapy. I also believe in empowering the patient to understand their condition and how to prevent recurrence. 1 hour, all sessions one-on-one. Will include preventative assessments and re-evaluations as necessary.
Running Gait Analysis
Runner readiness assessment
Analysis of a series of functional movements which are required for an efficient gait. From the Runner Readiness Assessment, a specific exercise program will be provided for you. 30 minutes, one-on-one.
Analyze how your body responds to incremental loads, such as jumping and other plyometric movements. Having an efficient spring helps to absorb and return energy as you run, which leads to improved running economy. Based on the results from the Loading Assessment, you will receive an individual exercise program. 30 minutes, one-on-one.
Re-evaluation of home programs are recommended periodically as you improve, to ensure you are continually challenging and improving your body system.
