Running and Endurance Sports Injury Clinic

  • Back on your feet again

    The team at The Running and Endurance Sports Injury Clinic knows athletes. We can help both elite athletes and recreational runners with issues ranging from nagging soreness to acute injuries.

    Almost 75 percent of all runners are injured each year. Most running and endurance sports injuries are caused by overuse and training errors. Successful treatment of these injuries and return to participation depends on correct diagnosis and treatment.

    Regardless of the severity of the injury, we understand the importance of returning to and maintaining your regular training regimen. By identifying the source of the problem, we can help you get up and going again!
