Physical Therapy For Runners In Columbia

Personalized Running Injury Prevention and Treatment

Running offers a fantastic fitness solution but does bring its share of risks. Our unique team of physical therapists, all holding Doctorates in Physical Therapy, stands ready to not only help runners prevent injuries but to treat them if they do occur. At our clinic, one-on-one care isn’t a luxury; it’s a standard.

We understand your running objectives and will devise bespoke exercises that will dovetail with your training regimen. With our team, you’re more than just another patient – you’re a partner in the healing process. Our unique approach of personalized and individual attention is what sets us apart from other Physical Therapy clinics.

Achilles Tendonitis

Running, while enjoyable, can sometimes cause undue stress to the Achilles tendon. This strain typically arises from sudden mileage increments or from inherent foot biomechanics that make the tendon more susceptible to overuse. Our skilled therapists are here to support you, offering pain management, exercises, and rehabilitation programs. Our goal is to restore joint movement and decrease stress on your Achilles tendon, ensuring you return to your runs even stronger than before.

In our clinic, we don’t just manage symptoms; we target the root cause. If rest and offloading don’t alleviate your Achilles tendon discomfort, it could indicate a more serious condition such as a degenerative type of Achilles Tendinopathy. Our DPTs will guide you through this, ensuring you’re not alone in your journey to recovery.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis, a condition causing pain in the heel, often emerges following an increase in physical activity, such as running a race or prolonged periods of walking. Runners may be particularly susceptible due to abrupt intensity changes and increased training volume.

Our DPTs aren’t merely treating the pain; they’re addressing the underlying gait abnormalities contributing to your plantar fasciitis. Besides recommending stretching and strengthening exercises, we might also advocate for icing, anti-inflammatory medications, braces, or orthotics as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Our ultimate aim? Get you back to running, stronger and better than before.

Knee Pain

Our therapists are here to help you combat knee pain and enhance mobility. We offer a mix of strength training, stretching exercises, and balance drills tailored to your specific needs. Our clinic’s mantra? Solve the root problem and surpass the previous condition. That’s why we dedicate our efforts to an effective treatment plan that adheres closely to our expert advice.

Hip Pain

Chronic hip pain can sideline a runner. But with our DPTs at the helm, relief is within reach. Our therapists can address hip pain issues from labrum tears to fractures, using an array of techniques to alleviate discomfort and get you back to your running regime.

We understand running isn’t just a hobby; it’s a part of who you are. And we’re here to ensure that injuries don’t hinder your stride. Our unique one-on-one approach and problem-solving focus make our clinic the ideal place to overcome the hurdles on your way to a full recovery.

Friendly and high spirited staff. My personal therapist is very knowledgeable and caring. I couldn’t be happier with decision to choose Ascent.

Andrea McConkey

This was one of the best experiences! When I went in for a locked knee I was pretty hopeless. Sean was a great listener and helped me find some hope in that very first visit! He created a plan of activities that encouraged me to keep moving. I am so grateful for his kindness and expertise. Highly recommend Sean and the others at Ascent.
