GBS Foot and Gait Training Screening

On February 22, IBJI Sports Medicine held a Foot and Gait Screening at Glenbrook South High School for the girls and boys track teams. Sixteen therapists from a variety of clinics volunteered to help with the screening for the track athletes by assessing foot mechanics, gait, strength and flexibility.

Nearly 40 participants were screened and then instructed on the proper type of shoe they should be training in. The therapists are now reviewing the data collected to help the coaching staff improve the warmup, strengthening and stretching programs to address the weaknesses found for the athletes to reduce their risk of injuries.
