Speed Clinic

End of an era:

After 20+ years of service, UVA’s world-renowned SPEED Clinic (Strength, Power, Endurance, Education, and Development) is permanently closing its doors. We are incredibly thankful to have been able to offer our time, knowledge, and expertise to companies for research, institutions for product development, and members of our community as they became better athletes. At the end of the day, helping people attain their goals and reach their maximum potential was the reason we started this whole endeavor. We could not be more grateful to each and every one of you.


Where can I go to get an assessment/evaluation now?

Anyone interested in having an athletic evaluation, running assessment, or is looking to overcome a sports injury of any kind should contact The Runner’s Clinic at UVA. Run by Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Chair,  Dr. Robert Wilder, the Runner’s Clinic offers expert rehabilitation services in a brand new, state-of-the-art facility at Ivy Mountain Orthopaedic Center.

While the SPEED Clinic offered running services from exercise physiologists and physical therapists in a research lab that required out-of-pocket payments, the Runner’s Clinic offers services from licensed physicians in a clinical setting that takes most forms of insurance. Over the course of the years, we have referred many patients back and forth between the two clinics and we are extremely confident that Dr. Wilder and his team can assist you in any way you might need.
