August 2021 COVID Update – COR continues to follow COVID safety protocols

COR Running Program


The COR Running Program is a personalized biomechanical analysis by a physical therapist using our unique analysis process. This allows us to measure a runner’s:

  • cadence
  • step and stride length
  • right- and left-sided asymmetries
  • other running gait parameters

Churchill Orthopedic Rehabilitation uses the results from the analysis along with a functional movement assessment to identify possible impairments and asymmetries contributing to running gait inefficiency and/or pain. As one of the few providers in Bergen County that offers this service, the COR Running Program allows Churchill Orthopedic Rehabilitation to create an individualized program for each runner that improves their running efficiency and eliminates their pain.

The COR Running Program is appropriate for all runners, ranging from novice runners who have just started their running journeys to elite runners completing marathons and ultramarathons. The COR Running Program is customized for each runner and their personal goals, which may include:

  • safely returning to running after an injury and/or surgery
  • decreasing their risk of injury
  • improving their cadence and/or efficiency
  • increasing their endurance

Many Runners suffer from these common injuries

  • Knee pain (patellofemoral pain)
  • Tendinopathies: hamstring tendonitis, patellar tendonitis, and Achilles tendonitis
  • Shin splints (medial tibial stress syndrome)
  • ITB syndrome (iliotibial band syndrome, also known as IT Band syndrome)
  • Heel Pain (Plantar fasciitis)

Here is what the COR Running Program involves:

  • One hour, one-to-one session with a Doctor of Physical Therapy
  • A running-specific evaluation that identifies and measures musculoskeletal asymmetries and restrictions, including range of motion, strength, and flexibility
  • Examination of your running gait pattern on a treadmill while the analysis software analyzes specific running parameters
  • Results review and discussion
  • An individualized program that includes home exercises to improve flexibility, strength, and muscle recruitment patterns
  • Recommendations on appropriate running strategies, running shoes, orthotics, and training programs to improve overall efficiency
