Running Injury Clinic

runninginjuryclinic.com World leaders in 3D gait analysis We are the world leaders in 3D gait analysis. The goal of the Running Injury Clinic is to educate and develop injury prevention and rehabilitation programs for all runners through world-class research and clinical practice.

Using our state-of-the-art motion capture technology (www.3dgaitanalysis.com), we analyze the mechanical patterns of how people walk and run (their gait patterns) and determine the root cause of their injury. Our Clinic is located in Glenmore Landing in SW Calgary and we operate as both a public resource and a world-class research laboratory. Our team consists of a group of many diverse individuals who are certified health professionals and/or researchers. Thus, our ability to integrate clinical questions and find research-based solutions is tremendous. We constantly improve our clinical practice through our ongoing research studies. This paradigm allows us to provide the most sophisticated methods to assess your injury and understand how your gait mechanics are related to injury prevention and treatment. The Director of the Clinic is Dr. Reed Ferber. Dr. Ferber is a board certified athletic therapist and holds a Ph.D. in sports medicine and gait biomechanics from the University of Oregon. He has completed post-doctoral research fellowships at the University of Delaware and the University of Calgary and specializes in the research and clinical treatment of lower extremity injuries. He is an Assistant Professor in the Faculties of Kinesiology and Nursing at the University of Calgary and he is also a Population Health Investigator through the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (www.ahfmr.ab.ca).

Outrun Rare

A HUGE shout-out to Dave Proctor! Dave is running across Canada next Summer (June 22, 2018) in hopes of raising $1 Million for Rare Disease. His son Sam suffers from a rare disease and he is hoping his record breaking run across our beautiful country will help raise awareness and much needed research dollars for Rare Disease.

Dave will be running for 66 days consecutively, averaging 108 KM a day. His record-breaking epic run will be 7200km long!

Please like or follow Dave on Social Media. This simple gesture holds so so much value to his campaign. Every Like or Follow is incredibly important to his campaign right now.

#DaveOutrunsRare #RareIsEverywhere #1in12 #OutRunRare2018

Dave (@xcanada4rare) needs our help right now to help make it happen.

He has a goal of 10,000 followers by Christmas Day. The more followers Dave has the easier it is to get corporate sponsors to donate.

Please forward this email and spread the word to everyone you know - let's create an amazing community of support for Dave and Sam.

Running May Be Good for Your Knees

Some excellent research showing that running is, in fact, very good for your knees. They measured a biomarker called COMP, which generally accumulates in diseased knees and is often used as a marker of arthritis. This study showed a shift in their COMP levels and that a 30 minute run "squeezed" this compound out of the knee joint and into general circulation. Further evidence of the many benefits of running.
