If you are a runner, this is the page for you
All of our runners & triathletes go through an extensive evaluation process.
On the first visit, you will go through traditional Chiropractic, Orthopedic and Neurological testing.
On subsequent visits, once the pain starts to subside, you will also undergo a biomechanical assessment of your walking and running. We must wait until the pain is minimal to perform the biomechanical assessment, otherwise, the pain will cause compensations in your running form and alter your true running and walking patterns.
The goal of the assessment is not to critique or teach technique. We are concerned with locating faults in your running or walking that may be causing your injury and locating limitations due to muscular imbalances. The final aspect of the evaluation process is a Functional Movement Screening. This screening will test your body in certain movements to determine any weakness, tightness and/or altered movement patterns. We then take the findings from the video and the functional movement screening and compare our results.
For example, we may find a hip drop in running form that indicates hip instability. Hip instability is a leading cause of many hip and knee overuse injuries in runners.
We will then look for any failed screening tests that indicate weakness of the hip stabilizers to see what may be causing the unstable hip. 
Overuse Injuries

Most injuries related to running, biking and swimming are caused by repetitive strain to the area and fall under the category of Over-use injuries. We do treat many traumatic injuries, such as falling off the bike or ankle sprains during running, but the majority of injuries fall under the Repetitive Injury Cycle. The main difference between treatment protocols for Overuse and Traumatic sports injuries that don’t require surgery is that Overuse injuries will require treatment and therapy for aspects of the body other than the injury site.

As stated earlier, many overuse injuries are caused by dysfunctions in other aspects of the body, which places excessive strain and stress on other parts of the body. The area of the body that the stress is placed on by the dysfunctions and the requirements of the sport typically become the over-use injury site.
