he Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Running Injury Prevention Program is designed to identify and correct for biomechanical movement errors that increase the risk of a running related injury.

In the United States 79% of runners will sustain a running related injury annually. Of significant concern are adolescent female and male cross country runners who demonstrate higher injury rates. Additionally, running is a primary component to generalized sports participation which is on the rise in young athletes. Despite the high percentage of running related injuries, most are preventable.
