So many new runners are attracted to running not because of any particular interest in the sport, but because it’s known as one of the easiest and simplest ways to get in shape. No gym membership required, no fancy equipment needed – just a good pair of shoes and the motivation to get out the door.
The seeming simplicity of running is one of its biggest selling points. However, many runners, both new and experienced, will encounter injury due to poor running form. Having a knowledgeable outside eye to evaluate your form and provide feedback can go a long way toward injury prevention.
The Prehab Running Analysis has been enormously beneficial for my own running. Although I’ve been running for 12 years, I had developed some bad habits that have led to painful, sometimes life-upending injuries. After a forced year off, I re-learned to run, bearing in mind that I needed to implement some changes such as shortening my stride, increasing my cadence, and breaking my heel strike habit.
Implementing changes to something your body has done the same way for so long can seem intimidating, but the body and the brain are infinitely adaptable. A recent study – The Cognitive Demands of Gait Retraining in Runners – showed runners making a change to their cadence were able to integrate the change in both brain and body in just nine runs!
