For Runners, By Runners
Life is fun. But pain sucks. Especially when it means you can’t go biking, hiking, play the cello, drive your car, or go running. There is a lot of information out there. Some good, some bad, and some that seems to help with your problem maybe a little. You see a physio for a couple sessions. You get a massage. Things are feeling a little better - but it’s still there.
The Three Cornerstone Approach
TRP developed the Three Cornerstone Approach as an elevated method to assessing and treating pain and specifically to pain related to running. Whereby traditional rehabilitation views the body in isolation, we’ve taken things a step further by integrating findings from three Key Cornerstones:
Cornerstone 1: Movement Strategies
How do you move through the world? How do you get from A to B? How does your range of motion, joint movement, and strength affect this? While there is no “right” or “wrong” way to move, we take a good hard look at how you’re doing it.
Cornerstone 2: Goals or Gait Analysis
Once we know your movement strategies, we can see how they are reflected in your running or goal activity. This helps us pull together what is important to focus on and/or what is most likely contributing to your injury.
Cornerstone 3: Training & Headspace
How often you run, what’s on your feet, and other things like mental headspace, sleep, and nutrition all play a very important role in how you feel day-to-day. We discuss all of these contributing factors and help guide you in identifying and making small changes in your life so that you can move forward with knowledge and confidence.
