New Running Analysis program at Wood County Hospital

Rehabilitation Services has been training at the Cleveland Clinic’s Annual Running Seminar since 2016 in preparation to launch a new Running Analysis program at Wood County Hospital. Video running analysis has been incorporated into physical therapy patient care since 2016, but it is now being offered to runners as a fee-based service. The analysis allows therapists to view frame-by-frame shots of running form and identify faulty running mechanics that may contribute to running related pain or injuries.
The benefits of the analysis include:

  • Improved running efficiency and performance
  • Prevention of running related injuries for new runners or those planning to increase mileage
  • Assistance for injured runners to transition back into running

Runners start by completing a running history questionnaire. In their first visit, a 1-hour session ($75), they will review the running history questionnaire, discuss the functional strength and flexibility screen, and record the running from a posterior view, side views, and front view.
Follow up visits will consist of 30 minute sessions ($45) which will provide a copy of the running reports with still shots, personalized handouts of recommended exercises, and discuss running modifications. They may also include a brief running instruction on the treadmill if needed.
If you would like to learn more about this program, please contact Rehabilitation Services at (419) 354-8950.
