The Running Lab is a branch of Therapeutic Associates on State Street. The goal of the Running Lab is to treat injured runners, enhance running performance and prevent running injuries by utilizing the most current running-specific analysis technology and training equipment.
The Running Lab will utilize advanced video gait analysis, running metrics, physiological testing and the alter-G treadmill. The alter-G treadmill will serve a second purpose as providing a unique and very useful tool for the rehabilitation of post-surgical patients, patients with spinal injuries and overuse syndromes.
Who would benefit from The Running Lab?
- Runners of all ages and levels, whether competitive or recreational, who are interested in improving their mechanical efficiency in order to improve running performance.
- Runners currently dealing with injury who want an evaluation targeted specifically to the demands of running and rehabilitation aimed at restoring pain-free running as well as improving performance through mechanical efficiency.
