Your Path to Pain-Free Running Starts Here 

Learn how to move and feel your best with help from a physical therapist who specializes in running. 

Don’t Run From Pain or Injury

When those minor pains first crop up, it’s tempting to push through. Before you know it, you’re piling on more rest days, altering your training routine, and experimenting with over-the-counter remedies. All you really want is to hit the pavement again — and we understand. 

Rediscover the joy of pain-free running with the support of a physical therapist who shares your passion for running, too.

How is Physical Therapy for Runners Different? 

Reaching a full recovery and returning to pain-free running requires runner-specific exercises. Clamshells and leg lifts just won’t cut it! Through runner-specific exercises, you’ll stabilize imbalances and teach your body how to fix the root cause of injury for good.
