About Us

The Performance Running Academy

Run Longer, Run Stronger

By Plymouth Physical Therapy Specialists

PRA exists to provide expert training, techniques, facilities, and resources to prevent injuries, and accelerate injury recovery for runners of any age, and every skill level, and is passionate about individual patient care.

This brand new practice is an evolution of the running clinics that were provided by Plymouth Physical Therapy Specialists (PPTS) since 1995.

In a safe and pressure-free environment, the staff at PRA offer three programs to the general public, all without the requirement to involve health insurance. The first program is called the Running Clinic Challenge.

The second program called Video Analysis, and the third program called Advanced Training program both allow the PRA staff to go more in-depth with runners of all skill types, and provide personalized live training for the participants. Some highlights of each program include Video Analysis using high speed video capture, while Advanced Training implements the Alter-G™ Anti-Gravity Treadmill.
