Here at Rise Physical Therapy we love working with runners of every experience level to provide personalized running injury treatment.

Whether you are new to running, planning your first 5k, or you are a seasoned marathoner, we can work with you to make you a stronger, healthier runner.  Many of our doctors of physical therapy are seasoned runners who can coach you through nagging injuries, debilitating pains, and prevent future injuries with an overall functional screening to find any risk factors that may lead to injury. We love keeping our community healthy and active and a great place to start is keeping our runners on the road and on the trails doing what they love.

That’s why we created this page – to share resources that we hope will help runners like you. Enjoy, and please don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have questions. We would love to provide you with top notch running injury treatment and help you get back out on the road or trail!

What does running injury treatment look like at Rise Physical Therapy?

Our doctors of physical therapy will work with you to identify areas of weakness or imbalance in the body and create personalized exercise programs to address these issues and help prevent future injuries. They may also use modalities such as manual therapy, massage, and stretching to reduce pain and improve mobility. Our doctors of physical therapy will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan to eliminate your pain or injury and help you return to running. We also offer running gait analysis as part of your running injury treatment to help determine the root cause of the injury and prevent it from recurring in the future.

ASTYM (A-Stim) treatment is a dramatically different way to treat overuse injuries that affect runners. Rather than just treat symptoms, the ASTYM process zeroes in on the underlying physiology responsible for injuries. The treatment stimulates the return of healthy tissue, allowing you to keep doing what you love to do.
This is a great way to make sure your legs are fresh before a big race, and helping with recovery after your race. Give us a call if you’d like to schedule a pre and post race ASTYM treatment session.
