Running Injuries

Running injuries are frustrating because it’s hard to ‘modify’ running in a way that makes the pain go away. Usually the injuries are strains (tears) in the muscles of the thighs or calves.  But sometimes pain that feels like a hamstring strain is really coming from the lower back.

First we’ll figure out the origin of your pain. Then we’ll use a combination of gentle hands-on therapeutic techniques as well as improvements in exercise, movement and posture to help resolve your pain and get you back to running as quickly as possible.
