Running Gait Analysis: Reducing Pain and Improving Efficiency

Wednesday, November 10, 2021              1:00PM-2:00PM                  Virtually  

Working on strength is essential for runners to stay pain-free and improve performance, BUT if we can't translate these strength gains into improved running form, they don't help much. It's not just about having the strength, but also about being able to use it properly when running. Join Sam to learn how a gait analysis can improve your running and help you to avoid injuries.

Speaker: Sam Howland, DPT, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Running Gait Analyst, UPMC Centers for Rehab Services.
