Physical Therapy for Runners
Are you a runner?
Runners of all ages not only face possible injuries but also may not be running to their full potential. Our running specialists are highly experienced, and they help runners improve form, heal injuries, and prevent further dysfunction. Runners stay healthier and stronger and therefore continue to run for a long time.

Our running specialists believe simple changes to a runner’s form can have dramatic improvements. People often run with the breaks on. Runners with improper form land ahead of themselves, rather than underneath their body, increasing friction and impact through their stride – ultimately slowing them down. With simple adjustments, runners can avoid injury, run more effectively and be successful at reaching individual goals. Our staff in Vancouver WA is knowledgeable, passionate and highly experienced!
East Portland Clinic
Our team in Portland OR has years of experience working with endurance athletes of all levels. Our running specialist believes that by looking at gait patterns along with muscle, joint and motor patterns, dysfunctional asymmetries and deficits can be determined. With a physical therapy running evaluation runners can improve their power and efficiency. Morgan is certified in ASTYM, a soft tissue technique that is very useful in treating chronic injuries and believes strongly in the use of manual therapy within the physical therapy practice (as it is second only to laughter).
