If an injury is keeping you from running or performing other physical activities that you love, working with a rehabilitation specialist can help get you back on your feet. In this physical therapy education article, we are going to talk about how physical therapy can get you back up and running – literally!
A running analysis can help identify potential issues with your running technique. A physical therapist can use the results of such an analysis to help you improve your running form and help prevent potential injuries that may result from poor technique. Running analyses can be a huge help in preventing injuries before they occur or getting to the bottom of why an injury happened in the first place.
Physical Therapy for Running Injuries
If you have sustained an injury while running, or an injury that prevents you from running, working with a physical therapist can help. A physical therapist can examine the full extent of your injury, get to the bottom of what caused the injury in the first place, and walk you through options for treating your injury. Your physical therapist can develop exercises, stretches, and other modalities to help you return to running and other physical activities.
