All Assessments include:
- Postural assessment
- Functional assessment
- Footwear assessment
- Musculoskeletal assessment
- Full-body 3D running gait and footprint pressure analysis
Each athlete receives a comprehensive report, including running videos and corrective recommendations. If desired, the MiPR team will provide follow-up consultation with a health care provider or running coach.
Injury Assessment Package
Running injuries are complex and highly individualistic. For athletes who have been dealing with a complicated or chronic running-related injury, our advanced technologies can help detect subtle causes not evident with standard evaluation methods. We assess the runner for deficits in mobility, strength, and functional control, as well as problematic running form and footwear selection.
Novice Assessment package
Whether to improve fitness through running or to finish a marathon, we can provide the new runner with information to start them off on the right foot. We will assess the runner’s ideal training pace, identify potential running pitfalls, and provide training, footwear, and running technique recommendations.
Performance Assessment Package
Designed for runners with a specific performance goal in mind, we will evaluate musculoskeletal function and running technique to determine biomechanical inefficiencies that are hindering the runner's performance. Additionally, we will conduct a lactate threshold test and provide training zones based on heart rate and pace to refine the runner’s current training program.
Postpartum Assessment Package
For women who are returning to running or starting to run after having a child, we provide tools to guide the process. We will assess current fitness level and running form to provide personalized training recommendations that maximize endurance performance while minimizing injury risk. Appropriate form for running with strollers is also considered. Mothers are welcome to bring their infant children with them to the assessment.
