Physical Therapy Clinic Offers Running Analysis

By Maj. Lee Warlick 628th Medical Group Physical Therapy flight commander

The 628th Medical Group Physical Therapy Clinic is expanding its services to include a Running Analysis Clinic beginning June 19 in room 103 of Joint Base Charleston - Air Base Health and Wellness Center, with a goal to reduce the high volume of overuse injuries associated with running. This service will be offered on the third Tuesday afternoon of each month.

Through this program, running patterns will be accessed in order to make recommendations on running shoes and provide education on injury prevention and proper running progression.

This service is available to all TRICARE Prime and Standard Beneficiaries. Although no referral is needed to benefit from this service, an appointment is required and can be scheduled by calling the 628th MDG Appointment Line at 963-6880.

To cancel or reschedule an appointment, clients should call the Appointment Line at least 24 hours in advance. Clients must wear shorts and running shoes for this appointment.
