The Running Gait Analysis course has changed the way I practice.

“Meeting Chloë and taking her course on Running Gait Analysis has changed the way I practice. I have had extensive experience with runners and triathletes over the past decade as a physical therapist. But through Chloë’s evidence based research, deep understanding of the biomechanics of running/running injuries and dynamic presentation, I have been able to take my practice to another level. Not only do I use the knowledge I gained from her course with every patient ; but I have been able to implement a running clinic so that I can reach more people in the community. I look forward to more courses from Chloë in the coming year!”
