RunWell in Eugene, OR
Helping you go the distance
RunWell is a sport-specific performance training program designed to meet the needs of runners regardless of age, experience or level of competition. Your first step begins by meeting with a dedicated physical therapist--a trained specialist who will work with you whether they are recovering from a running injury or if you are training to run PR.
The program operates in cooperation with the University of Oregon Motion Analysis Laboratory in Eugene, which uses state-of-the-art motion-capture technology to study the biomechanical factors that contribute to running injuries.

Who can benefit from RunWell?

Having a well-balanced musculoskeletal system will allow you to run consistently without injury and to train at a desired level to improve performance.
What does a RunWell assessment look like?
During a RunWell Evaluation, the physical therapist will:
- Conduct an interview of the runner’s complete history including level of experience, training and racing history, and injuries sustained. These can be running injuries or injuries that occurred outside of running.
- A comprehensive video analysis of the runner’s walking and running gait
- A detailed physical examination of the runner’s:
4. joint range of motion (ROM)
6. balance and coordination
After the examination your physical therapist will evaluate your results and set a follow up visit with you to discuss a personalized plan of care designed to meet your goals. Each runner will be given a detailed packet of their exam findings, the physical therapist’s assessment of the impact of these findings on running performance, and instructions in corrective exercises.
How long does an exam take?
The physical portion of the exam takes 90 minutes in-clinic. A follow up visit of 45 minutes to discuss results and personalized plan of care will also be included in your exam.
Do I need more than one follow up visit?
You have the option to add more follow up visits for guidance and progression of your personalized program.
