About the Clinic
Founded in March 2013, the Arcadia University Running Injury Clinic welcomes athletes of all ages and abilities who are looking to recover from or prevent a running-related injury, and for those looking to enhance running performance. The clinic is designed as a single-visit assessment which includes a medical and running history review, a comprehensive physical examination (strength, flexibility, core, balance, alignment, function, movement analysis, etc.), a formal running gait analysis (treadmill or overground), home exercise program instruction, and recommendations for further management. Following the session, a formal written report of the assessment will be provided. Running mechanics are reviewed and associated with findings from the clinical examination in order to best optimize injury recovery management or reduce injury risk.
The clinic is directed by Dr. Brian Eckenrode, PT, DPT, PhD, OCS, associate professor in Arcadia University’s Department of Physical Therapy and former collegiate cross-country runner and current marathoner. He has over 23 years of clinical experience in orthopaedics and sports medicine as a physical therapist, which includes working with collegiate, professional, and Olympic level athletes.
