At E3 Training Solutions we offer a variety of services we refer to performance services because they are specifically designed to help you improve. All our services are evidence-based on the latest scientific, established training concepts and technology.
We associate with experts in different fields such as biomechanics, soft tissue rehab/treatments, physical therapy, massage therapy, dynamic evaluations, etc. Finally, we follow reputable testing protocols that will provide you with valuable feedback for your training or enhance your injury rehabilitation.
What is a Clinical Gait Analysis?
Is the process whereby biomechanic gait characteristics are measured, abnormalities are identified, causes are postulated, and treatments are proposed. Notice this service is different from our performance run gait analysis.
Who Can Benefit From It?
For currently injured athletes with complex and difficult to diagnose running related injuries for which traditional treatments have been unsuccessful.*
How Does It Work?
It is a detailed assessment of the athlete’s injury history. Then we do a dynamic evaluation to identify mobility and stability limitations. We continue with a gait analysis: it involves placing external markers at specific points on the lower extremities, pelvis and torso of the patient. Then we film the athlete running from different angles and at different running speeds. Finally, the interdisciplinary team analyze the videos using specialized motion capture software (Dartfish) and provides specific feedback and treatment proposals.
The Interdisciplinary Assessment Team
Our expert team includes a physical therapy, a biomechanist and running coach. Collectively, the team review all information & materials collected, identifies potential causes and recommends treatments. These may include physical therapy, soft tissue injury treatment, myofascial release technique, training programs, technique/mechanics work or in most cases, a combination of some/all.
Clinical Run Gait Analysis – $250
It includes the first 4 weeks of the run rehab program for free. The run rehab program thereafter costs $165 per 4 week block.
