Whether a weekend warrior or a NCAA athlete, your risk of injury increases as you age. Compromised form and improper biomechanics contribute, as well, even in young athletes. Research shows that 65% of runners are injured annually, and biomechanical evaluations can help prevent many of those injuries.
Krull Clinic offers a Runner/Athlete Evaluation for individuals as well as teams. In season or out, we can assist you with better understanding of how to keep your body in balance and injury-free. A combination of assessment, exercises and techniques will be employed to correct your anatomical imbalances and help you even exceed past athletic performance.
Our screenings are performed by therapists and trainers with a wide variety of athletic backgrounds and may include:
▪ Biomechanical evaluation: anatomical structure, muscle flexibility, and strength
▪ Functional movement analysis
▪ Past and current injury status
▪ Sport specific analysis
▪ Exercise program tailored to you and your sporting needs
▪ Relevant preventative exercises and instruction
▪ Recommendations for proper footwear and/or orthotics
▪ Gait analysis
Benefits of screening include:
▪ Decrease in recurring pain
▪ Reduced foot numbness and pain
▪ Lessened pressure on structures surrounding joints
▪ Increased ability to perform without pain, stiffness, and discomfort
At Krull Clinic, we take a true team approach to your health and development, and welcome input from coaches, trainers, and other medical professionals to speed you along to your goals.
