MACOMB, Ill. – McDonough District Hospital’s Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation services currently offers a personalized Running Clinic for people ages 12 and older. The clinic is open to runners of all skill levels, from those just beginning to the recreational and advanced runners.

The initial free screening takes 30 minutes and set up by an appointment, which includes discussion of injury and history, muscle strength and flexibility assessment. Next, the clinic offers a personalized evaluation, providing:

  • an individualized exercise program
  • running analysis
  • video analysis
  • foot and running shoe recommendations

The 45-minute clinic runs once a week for 4-6 weeks. Runners will focus on decreasing pain and risk for injury.

The cost varies based on individuals’ insurance company coverage for physical therapy, or if the individual wishes to pay out-of-pocket.

The clinic will take place in the MDH physical therapy department and/or outdoors near MDH. For more information, contact Katie Ruebush, DPT in MDH Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation at (309) 836-1601.
