New Services Offered for Runners: Video Running Analysis and Anti-Gravity Treadmill

UTMB Health Galveston Occupational
and Physical Therapy Clinic is pleased
to announce new services to the running community!

  • Video Running Analysis: Schedule a consultation with a sports and orthopedic certified physical therapist specialist to have your running form analyzed. A technician will take video of you running on a treadmill. The PT will analyze the video with the state of the art Dartfish software to identify movement impairments impeding efficiency and potentially leading to overuse injury. You will be taken through a Functional Movement Screen to assist in obtaining a greater view of mobilty and stability. The PT will discuss these findings with you and provide instruction on how to improve your form and you will receive a report of your results. This service is ideal for the healthy runner interested in improving form and efficiency. Please note: this service is not designed for the injured individual requiring rehabilitation. Running analysis can be conducted for a patient when pain-free and cleared to return to running by his/her physician.
    Fee schedule: $100
  • Running Without Gravity: The Alter G Treadmill: This piece of equipment can be used to unload your body and still get your miles, whether you are walking or running. This leading technology is used to help you recover more quickly from lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle or foot) overuse issues that may occur. By lessening or eliminating the effects of gravity on the body, runners are able to regain mobility, and continue to develop endurance and fitness, all the while minimizing excessive weight-bearing stress. You don't need a referral or have to be a UTMB patient to use the Alter G. Current rates are $25 for 30 minutes or $50 for 3x30 minute sessions. Call to set up a time: 409-772-8834
