Description

Kick off your training the right way!

 

UPMC Sports Medicine will be hosting free runner assessments ahead of the UPMC Health Plan Pittsburgh Half Marathon Kick-off Run on Saturday, February 3, 2018. 

 

Lower extremity musculoskeletal screens will be performed by Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers.  Any deficits found in strength and/or flexibility will be addressed on the spot with corrective exercise demos.  Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to speak with a Sports Medicine Physician regarding more significant findings and establish a follow-up plan if needed.

 

We are proud to announce there will also be a few spots available for a more in-depth Gait Analysis session.  The gait assessment is a 2D video analysis to identify biomechanics of the lower extremity that are consistent with common lower extremity injuries (i.e., knee pain, etc.).  Registration for these appointments will be on a first come, first served basis.

 

If you are not already wearing running gear that morning, please bring shorts and running shoes with you.
