Running Center - Towson Sports Medicine

Running Center

runner in autumn backgroundThe Running Center is a program designed for runners of all ages. This program includes a complete injury evaluation, a home program specifically designed for each individual, and referrals for biomechanical gait analysis and orthotic fabrication.

Injury Evaluation

The injury screening program includes a complete evaluation and diagnosis. Based on the evaluation you may be given a home exercise program or if necessary, referred to a physician. Other referrals may include proper shoe fitting or orthotics. Towson Sports Medicine also offers an aquatic program for cross training while you are recovering from an injury.

The most common injuries among endurance athletes are overuse injuries. These include tendonitis, ITBS, bursitis, stress fractures, patellofemoral stress syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and shin splints. This is not an all encompassing list, as many other injuries can occur in the endurance athlete. Not every injury is caused by the same factors and an evaluation can determine which course of treatment is best for you. Call 410-337-8847 to schedule an appointment with Chris Parker, PT, CSCS

Injury Prevention

The best way to prevent overuse injuries is to be educated. The running center offers educational talks and screenings to organizations, clubs, and recreational centers. The running center also offers individual gait analysis to educate on proper footwear and/or activities that will prevent those re-occurring problems. To schedule an injury educational talk, call 410-337-8847.  

Injuries seen by appointment only.
