  • The Running Institute (map)

Become a Stronger Runner/Athlete with DR. MICHAEL J. CHIN

Join us at The Running Institute on Saturday, Feb. 23rd at 12:30pm with Dr. Chin. Bring your current running shoes and learn more about your feet and the right shoe for YOUR feet. It’s all about the feel and comfort of the shoe. Price is not the reason to buy nor are the stylings. You may need to replace them more often. Some of the high priced shoes like Nike or Mizuno, you have to replace as early as 2-3 months.

He works in a preventative manner to improve longevity and performance of his patient athletes. His approach to acute injuries includes a safe return to activities based on biofeedback and utilization of physical therapists focused on sport-specific exercises and treatments.
