  • Analysis of running style and body mechanics with a focus on proper alignment to reduce stress and joints
  • Basic foot analysis
  • Provide education regarding individualized footwear needs
  • Develop an individual strengthening and endurance program
  • Provide resources for training programs to address each person’s goals
