YMCA welcomes specialist to wellness staff
Peggy Thibodaux, a gait analysis specialist and healthy living coach, has been added to the wellness staff at the South Montgomery County YMCA.
A biomechanical engineer and a published researcher in orthopedic biomechanics, Thibodaux has two patents in the area of orthopedics and is trained as a specialist in corrective exercise and personal training from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
With the arrival of springtime comes an increase in racing and sporting events and therefore an increase in injuries. As people age, their posture and gait change gradually. Gait analysis gives runners an opportunity to look at muscle imbalances, weaknesses, tightness and other obstacles to biomechanically optimal running.
To schedule a gait analysis and movement assessment, contact Thibodaux at 281-367-YMCA or email@example.com. The analysis is available to all YMCA members and the community.
