Reach Your PR (Personal Record) With Us

Whether you want to get faster or overcome a nagging injury for good, our performance running program helps you get there.

Overview

Performance Running With Aurora

Our program is designed to help runners of all skill levels improve their form. Running with the proper form is one of the best ways to reduce your risk for common injuries, including stress fractures. We also help you run more efficiently, which can shave seconds or even minutes off your pace.

You’ll receive your assessment and recommendations in one 90-minute session with an Aurora physical therapist or licensed athletic trainer. You can also meet with us in a follow-up session to ask questions and receive even more personalized recommendations.

The Aurora Difference

Our Sports Health Care & Services for Runners

As one of Wisconsin’s largest sports health programs, we work with a large number of athletes, including runners of all ages. Our expertise helps us find and fix small problems that can make a big difference in your performance.

Other highlights of our program include:

  • Access to sports medicine doctors: We know that injuries like knee pain and lower back pain can be frustrating. That’s why we offer a broad range of treatments, including chiropractic care, to help you get back in stride as quickly as possible. Find out more about our sports injury treatments.
  • Relief from foot problems: If problems such as plantar fasciitis are getting in your way, we’re here for you. We help many runners get back on track with custom-made arch supports you place in your shoes. Learn more about custom foot orthotics.
  • Active community partnerships: We’re the official sports medicine provider of the Badgerland Striders – Wisconsin’s largest running club. Our team helps runners avoid injuries as they train for events like the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon. Read more about our team medical coverage.
  • Additional programs for runners: We offer additional programs to help runners of all skill levels have their best season yet. Our strength training program helps you build a strong core and upper body, both of which help you maintain good running form. Find out more about our sports performance programs.

What to Expect

Performance Running Assessments at Aurora

If you’re ready to take your running to the next level, here’s how we can help:

Running Assessment

We start by checking your current running performance, which includes:

  • Learning about your goals, how often you run and how far you go
  • Evaluating your current strength and range of motion
  • Making a video of you running on a treadmill. The video helps us pinpoint things that could be slowing you down, such as holding your shoulders in a rigid position.

Personalized Recommendations

We use information from your assessment to develop your personalized recommendations, which may include:

  • Changes to your running form, like increasing how quickly you get your legs on and off the ground (leg turnover).
  • Strength training to help you get stronger. Find out more about our 6-week strength training program.
  • Referral to one of our sports medicine doctors if we find potential medical problems like arthritis, that require care from a doctor. Learn how to get sports health care.
