Our Doctors of Physical Therapy take you through a comprehensive evaluation of your strength, flexibility, and running mechanics to see where things are going wrong in your run. Our Portland Clinics are equipped with stationary dual-camera video, computer analysis and running gait analysis, we identify your areas that are prone to breakdown and teach you ways to prevent and treat running injuries. We teach you how to improve your strength/endurance deficits, treat muscle strains, correct your running form and arm you with a Home Exercise Program tailored to you.

Why do I need this?

Like doing any repetitive activity, the human body can only take so much impact before it starts to break down. This usually occurs slowly and gradually as the body makes compensations to avoid pain and keep running. However, these compensations are often detrimental to a runner’s form and causes even more problems to develop.

Oftentimes, the answer is a few stretches and exercises, the RIGHT shoes, or some manual therapy to pull you out of the pain-and-compensate cycle. But figuring that out is the toughest part – and that’s why we’re here.

Video gait analysis

The human eye can view samples of movement at roughly 16 samples/second. Most lower extremity injuries happen at the midstance to terminal stance part of the gait cycle. This period typically happens 50 msec after initial contact of the foot to the ground. In order to accurately diagnose your deficits we need to be able to see them occur and unfortunately the human eye can only see samples of movement at 62.5 msec intervals. At Stride Strong PT our dual digital cameras record you and slow your gait down to 16.7 msec intervals between movement samples, ensuring that we don’t miss a single thing in your gait. We also utilize state of the art software to measure and record angles of movement. We can also put several videos next to each other so we can compare your progress across time and across different footwear. A Stride Strong Video Gait analysis is an excellent component of a running training program. For more information on what we can capture click here.

This place is amazing. I am so happy I found Stride Strong PT. Alice pays attention to all of the details, she watches every single move I make, my posture, and the way I move through every exercise. She is very knowledgeable, she was able to pin-point the problems in my back and she has a plan to help me become stronger where I need. The place is brand new, huge, and has nice exercise machines. I tried a few physical therapists in the area, and Alice is TOP, second to none, and I feel super lucky to have found her. Highly recommended!!

Dr. Alice at Stride Strong is one of the best PTs I have come across. Her attention to detail and assessment of the root cause of injury is very good. She is excellent in evaluating pain patterns and giving a training schedule for a rehab & injury prevention, she is extremely knowledgeable. I would strongly recommend Stride Strong to anyone looking for PT. It is easily the best PT clinics in Hillsboro area.

I recently had a massage from Joel at the Hillsboro location. He was able to work on an ongoing issue I have been experiencing with my back after a sports injury, and I left feeling so much better. The whole facility looked incredible, and everyone I met was friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend Stride Strong for massage and physical therapy.

Dr. Sydney is by far the absolute best physical therapist I've worked with ever! Her expertise in designing highly effective and efficient exercise plans is beyond compare. I feel so much better as my strength and function increases. She comes up with the most brilliant and fun ideas to motivate. To my delight she even offered to come to my home in Vancouver and work with me on my own equipment including a Stott Pilates Reformer. Talk about going above and beyond! Couldn't be more grateful I found her!!!

A full hour of a dedicated PT professional's time without aides or techs? That's just one of the things that sets this clinic apart from others. Competent, professional, and amiable, Dr. Alice Holland and her team are the best in the area. While I generally see them at the Cedar Mill Clinic on Cornell, situational constraints took me to their new Hillsboro clinic today near Intel Jones Farm. Beautifully furnished, spacious with easy parking and access. May you continue to grow and thrive, Stride Strong!
