Physical Therapist Services for Runners
Whether a runner's goal is to improve his or her time, increase speed or stay fit, it's essential to maintain correct form to prevent injury.
Physical therapists can advise runners on proper form, training methods, strategies for preventing injuries, and proper shoe selection and work with them to develop a plan, tailored to their specific needs, for successful running.
Physical therapists can also evaluate, diagnose and treat runners who have sustained a running-related injury.
Physical therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life through hands-on care, patient education, and prescribed movement. You can contact a physical therapist directly for an evaluation. To find a physical therapist in your area, visit Find a PT.
