Schedule Your Personalized Running Clinic and Evaluation at Illinois Bone & Joint Institute

Start your new year running program off right by treating yourself to a personalized running clinic and evaluation offered by Illinois Bone & Joint Institute (IBJI). These one-hour sessions are for runners of all levels, from beginner to elite. IBJI’s team of physical therapists has designed a multi-station program that covers everything from overall strength and flexibility to foot biomechanics. Participants receive:

  • Full body evaluation from a clinical perspective
  • Video analysis and professional advice on improving overall mechanics
  • Recommendations for a personalized home exercise program designed to improve running technique and efficiency
  • Consultations with a wellness team
  • Foot analysis and footwear recommendations

Designed with runner’s needs in mind, the clinic will conduct thorough evaluations by physical therapists who have worked with hundreds of runners, of all skill levels.  With the overwhelming positive feedback from past events, this will be the eigth time that IBJI is offering the running clinic.

Participants at past events included beginners, marathoners, triathletes, and high school track runners. Some were recovering from an injury. Others were looking to prevent pain as they ramp up for new running goals. Past participants have reported that the clinic made a big difference in their performance, whether it was correcting an error in running form or just making a slight change in technique that improves efficiency of movement.

The running clinic is offered at IBJI’s Highland Park location at 1919 Skokie Valley Road. IBJI wellness specialists will be on hand to provide mini-massages and to offer advice on fitness and technology for runners. The running clinic is on Saturday, January 30 from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Advance appointments are required and space is limited. The cost for each personalized clinic and evaluation is $50.
