We want to share an article that shows the data behind the results we see at RunDNA and the importance of gait analysis & gait retraining. Below are our 3 take aways from the research article.
1. Rarely do we get excited over tables in an article, but Table 2 really did the trick.
2. EXTERNAL FEEDBACK!
3. Gait retraining is a piece of the puzzle!
As much as we love running gait analysis, it would be remiss to ignore the fact that we must look at runners as a whole person. Movement patterns outside of running are meaningful and significant. That is why we use the Runner Readiness Assessment from Level 1 and the Jumping Levels in Level 2 to assess where runners are and as a guide in prescribing a path to achieve more efficient, injury-free running.
