To get to the bottom of knee, back, ankle, hip, or shoulder pain, we combine our 30 years of clinical PT experience with state-of-the-art biomechanical analysis systems. We’ll use the data we collect as the basis for a game plan to help you to address biomechanical issues. Then, we are able to correct improper form, and optimize mobility while strengthening flexibility and neuromuscular control and power.
Identify Movement Impairments
We observe your pedal stroke, seat and arm positions to find patterns specific to your flexibility, strength, joint mobility, and neuromuscular control. From that analysis, we are able to determine if your cycling form, shoes, saddle height are all appropriate for your movement needs.
Joint Freedom Throughout the Pedal Stroke
We use the Delsys Trigno Wireless EMG System to conduct dynamic muscle contraction comparisons and provide real-time feedback for cyclist’s movement and skills training. We also deploy the Gebiomized Pressure Analysis System to illuminate contact pressure mapping of the saddle, feet and hand contact.
We perform a thorough physical assessment of the runner both statically on the treatment table and dynamically while running. This enables us to identify a detailed problem list of potential areas that are or could contribute to an injury and/or decreased performance. Informed by years of experience and backed by research, we’ve developed a comprehensive approach to isolate issues and improve performance. Whether the goal is to win a race, set a new P.R., or simply perform better, we put together the complex elements to perfect one's running.
Identify Movement Impairments
A movement impairment is an abnormal movement pattern that may contribute to a person's complaint of pain, tightness, stiffness, or decreased performance. We observe everything about your running from head- to-toe to find movement patterns that may lead to unnecessary stresses and/or forces on your body. We factor in flexibility, strength, joint mobility, and neuromuscular control and how it may be contributing to any visible movement impairments. From our detailed analysis, we are able to determine if your running form/shoes are appropriate for your movement needs.
Perfect One's Stride
Chances are, no one taught you how to run when you were a kid. As children, running was as intuitive as our need to climb trees and eat sweets. But, we know that not all running styles are created equal, and many of us have imbalances we are not even aware of, which is why a gait analysis can not only be informative, but also a highly effective way to fix the problem(s).
Factoring Ground Reaction Force with Friction Force
To help you to reach your next goal, we replicate ground running on the treadmill. With our technology, we are able to map your stride and strike to see detailed information on not only friction, but pressure as well. This analysis helps us to create an effective mitigation plan so you diminish injury potential and become more efficient.

Strength, Stamina, Stability
These qualities don’t magically appear, they must be developed, and the subtle balance can be lost from injury or poor alignment. We work closely with the athlete to develop an at home program that increases strength and stamina as well as improves flexibility.
Adjust Movement for Optimal Performance
We deploy the Simi Aktisys High Speed Motion Analysis System to provide real time visualization and quantitative diagnosis of a runner’s 2D joint motion. This allows for immediate feedback and skills training while in studio. Combined with the Qualisys 8 Miqus 3D Motion Capture Camera System, we get a full-body 3D motion analysis and online running analysis report of a runner at 250 fps.
Body Composition test
The Inbody has been shown to be 98% accurate compared to the gold standard DEXA testing for body composition. Learn you percent body fat, lean muscle mass, body fat mass, segmental analysis, and basal metabolic rate.
