FARMINGTON — The Franklin Memorial Hospital Physical Rehabilitation Department will host a free running clinic from 4:45 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Physical Therapy Clinic in the Stanley Health Center on the Franklin Memorial Hospital campus.

The clinic will provide screening for flexibility, core strength, footwear choices, diet and running gait. Staff taking part in the clinic include Dr. Thomas Pulling, athletic trainers, physical therapists, physical therapy assistants and a dietitian.

A running analysis will be provided through a slow motion computer program that shows a person’s gait in millisecond increments. Through extensive research and training, a physical therapist is able to analyze multiple points of contact during running to help prevent injury and improve performance.

Attendees should wear running clothes and shoes, and bring water. To reserve a time slot, call 779-2620.
