Biomechanics & Running Programs

Are you ready to run strong, stay pain and injury free, and improve your imbalances? 

Poor mechanics can lead to numerous lower limb injuries as the body attempts to compensate for deficiencies.

Whether you’re an athlete, the parent of an athlete or someone who hasn’t worked out in a long time, it is important to consider a biomechanical evaluation as part of your fitness regimen.

Don’t wait until you have an injury before taking the proper precautions and correcting the mechanics that can help you down the road!


Biomechanical Evaluations

Performed at Santiago Chiropractic Associates in Lake Hiawatha, NJ. The OptoGait and OptoJump systems are the latest breakthrough in advanced gait analysis, used by Olympians and elite athletes to increase rehabilitation times and improve sporting performance.

Thanks to small cameras that can be positioned as desired, the systems allows the recording of images, flight and contact times during a performance with an accuracy of 1/1000 of a second.

Evaluations are beneficial for:

rapidly identifying muscular deficiencies, measuring tolerance to various work loads, examining your physical condition after an injury to develop specific actions for rehabilitation and progress checking, motivating you by giving you tangible proof of the progress made through your chiropractic treatment and/or training, etc.

If you suffer from common ailments such as

plantar fasciitis

anterior knee pain

Achilles tendonitis

hip, shin or back pain

you are a perfect candidate for a biomechanical evaluation.

Running Coaching 

Are you interested in finishing your first 5K, 10K or Half Marathon?

Have you been running but want to improve a previous time?

Either way, I can help. Learn the proper mechanics to run efficiently and stay injury-free.

Your program will help you learn more about your foot type, learn the running fundamentals, and slowly build endurance to finish your race strong and confident.

I will discuss proper breathing technique and pre and post run mobility work.

I will provide you with a running schedule as well as race-day hydration tips, tips to avoid injury and how to safely incorporate cross training.

I’m a Boston Qualifier with years of running and coaching experience. My biomechanics background allows me to coach you into being a well-balanced runner with better performance and smarter movement patterns.

Please note this is not an in-person training. You do the work on your own and we check in over the period of your program. I do host occasional running clinics so be sure to sign up for my newsletter to stay updated on those!
