Athletes in Motion Gait Analysis & Bio-mechanics Assessment
December 8, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Are you struggling finding the proper footwear? Do you need help understanding your biomechanics? Is injury keeping you on the sidelines. If so, join Potomac River Running Store =Vienna= and Grove Spine & Sports Care for an in-house Gait Analysis and Individual Biomechanics Assessment.
While magazines and online shoe guides may suggest a “wet foot test”, looking at the wear pattern of your shoe, and other various formulas to pick footwear. The true determining factor should be based on what happens during motion, and a gait analysis provides a precise pattern of what your foot/body does while you are moving. Therefore, understanding your biomechanics helps to ensure you run healthy and injury free throughout your training cycle and beyond.
Dr. Ann O. Reilly is a board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic and specializes in Sports Medicine. She will be on-hand to provide one-on-one biomechanical assessments throughout the morning. Dr. Reilly’s extensive background includes Assisted Soft Tissue Methods, Kinesiotaping, Active Release Technique and Performance Movement Techniques. She is a certified Rocktape FMT Movability provider using functional taping skills to promote movement strategies and enhance performance.
