Northfield Clinic Uses Running Form Examinations and Personal Experience to Produce Optimum Performance Results and Improve Injuries in Runners
NORTHFIELD, OHIO (November 1, 2012) – Ohio Sports Chiropractic, a chiropractic clinic devoted to performance health, offers treatments and examinations specifically designed for the ailments and form of runners. Elite distance runner and 2012 Olympic trials marathon qualifier, Dr. Kormanik, operates the clinic to provide a place for runners to get the specialized care they need. With his knowledge of body mechanics and personal understanding, he not only treats the injury but the whole runner, preventing future injuries and improving form for personal best results.
“When it comes to treating runners, there’s a lot more that needs to be analyzed in regards to function,” said Dr. Leo Kormanik II, an elite runner and owner of Ohio Sports Chiropractic. “We conduct several tests and data studies in order to pinpoint problem areas that cause injury or inhibit performance.”
Runners frequently succumb to overuse injuries that occur overtime and are difficult to diagnose and treat. Dr. Kormanik conducts muscle tests and gait analysis to understand symptoms, treat and prevent injuries.
In addition to tending ailments, tests performed by Ohio Sports Chiropractic provide information about specific running patterns that inhibit performance. Dr. Kormanik uses these findings to enhance form and alignment.
“A runner’s form is critical to their performance,” said Dr. Kormanik. “We excel at producing optimum functional performance and getting athletes to their personal best.”
As a passionate runner, Dr. Kormanik desired a knowledge of enhancing functional performance for himself and to help others. Becoming a doctor enabled him to combine his running experiences with the knowledge of functional performance and create a mentorship environment for his patients.
