Are You Frustrated & Struggling to Run Without Pain?

A Personal Message from Dr. Jeanne Williams, PT, DPT, OCS, Founder and Owner of Quest Health & Performance

You’ve come to the right place if you responded “Yes” to any of these questions!

It’s natural to believe that a running injury is insignificant and will go away on its own. It’s also usual to blame it on “awkwardly stepping” or on something “every runner” experiences at some point in their lives.

If this is happening to you, you are not alone; we hear stories like this all the time.

Running injuries are, in fact, one of the most prevalent issues we treat in our clinic!

The idea of getting a running injury is considered “just part of running” and is inevitable for most runners if you run long enough. Many people even believe that running injuries are the unfortunate result of aging or that “running is bad for their joints.”
