Dr. Elna Johnson has a significant amount of experience in correcting and enhancing running performance in all sports. Not only does she draw a wealth of knowledge from her personal experiences and training as an elite level sprint hurdler, she also focused much of her research through school on the biomechanics of running. She also has worked closely with UBC’s Track and Field Team, as well as Athletics Canada National and Provincial BC Teams. She is able to detect small imbalances or weaknesses that can lead to significant future problems or reduced performance. If you wish to improve your gait in order to prevent injury or to increase running efficiency and speed, a running analysis with Dr. Johnson is an indispensable tool.
A running analysis will enable you to run/walk faster, longer and more efficiently. It will also reveal any weaknesses and limitations you may have. The improved running technique you will achieve following your gait analysis will also reduce your risk of injury and enhance your performance.
The first session will consist of Dr. Johnson personally observing your running and walking gait in multiple views. Following this session, Dr. Johnson will analyze and review the recorded gate in detail, frame by frame, to identify any differences between your current form and optimal running technique. She will also perform a functional screen that will better detect any other issues that may be impeding your performance and/or gait. This is something that is unique to Dr. Johnson’s gait analysis – as her expertise as a Chiropractor focusing on sport injuries and biomechanical faults, provide her with the knowledge and training to perform this functional screen.
In your second session, Dr. Johnson will review the findings and explain your results. You will be prescribed running tips, exercises and stretches to help you correct imbalances, improve form, speed, endurance, and prevent injuries.
