Injured? Or just looking to prevent your next injury? At Up and Running PT, we can do a formal assessment to determine what confounding factors have lead you to injury or predispose you to future injury. We then determine what interventions will have the most impact, in the least amount of time.
Running Gait Analysis
Functional Movement Screen
Manual Therapy (including joint mobilization and manipulation).
What is a Functional Movement Screen?
A functional movement screen is an evaluation technique that can help pinpoint specific movement deficiencies that can contribute to dysfunction, pain, and injury. Once identified, specific interventions can be put in place to correct the dysfunctional movement to facilitate improved performance and reduced pain.
What is Manual Therapy?
Manual therapy is a variety of skilled, hands-on techniques that physical therapists are trained to perform in order to address pain and disability. It incorporates the movement of soft-tissue and joints to facilitate improved function. Benefits of manual therapy include reduced pain and weakness, and improved performance and health. This includes joint mobilization and manipulation, certain forms of massage, and other types of manual hands-on techniques.
Blood-flow restriction training/therapy
Functional Exercise Prescription
What is Blood-Flow Restriction Therapy?
This new and upcoming training method consists of occluding blood flow to working muscle which has been proven to be safe and super-effective at accelerating strength improvements without lifting heavy weights. See the video below:
What is a Running Gait Analysis?
By watching you run, a physical therapist can identify abnormal movements, postures, and weaknesses, that can contribute to overuse injuries, decrease running efficiency, and reduce overall performance. Even a "healthy" or uninjured runner can make small changes to their running form that can result in improved performance. Slow-motion video can also be utilized to further inspect running gait to identify more subtle abnormalities.
