Dear Frustrated Runner,
This is likely to be the most important message you’ll read since being injured. Whether you run solo after work or are a serious club runner, you’ve come to the right place for help if you’ve been dealing with an injury that just won’t seem to heal.
Regardless of how long you’ve been frustrated by your lack of progress and whatever we find together to be the root cause of your concern, I’m confident that I have a solution to help you that will get you up and active again. After all, being injured stops you from taking part in something that’s not only very important to you but adds huge value and satisfaction to your life while maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle.
I have years of experience and track record as a specialist in running related injuries and physical therapy. I worked with athletes from high school and college to professional sports teams in the MLB, NFL, USL, as well as athletes on the USA Olympic team.
Know this, whether you’ve pulled a calf muscle, damaged a hamstring, twisted a knee, sprained an ankle or are suffering from plantar fasciitis, runners knee or shin splints, I have helped runners just like you recover and get back to running faster and more efficiently than they were before. Having worked with elite professional athletes, I can see firsthand that athletes who perform for their livelihood want results and want to be fit fast. Time is of the essence and every day that passes by is critical.
The good news for you is that with my vast experience working with high level athletes, I’ve been able to perfect all of our recovery tactics, expert techniques and “do this today, do that tomorrow” advice and share it to help people get in shape and stay in shape.
I’ll show you precisely what you’re doing with video analysis, use all of my experience and knowledge to tell you how long it will take to get you going again without pain and I’ll make the call on what specific exercises are safe for you to engage in and for how long right up until that day you’re fully healthy. When you achieve your fitness level, I’ll ensure you’re able to stay injury free and get back on the road, track or path of your choosing.
Does that sound like something you’d be interested in or what you came here looking for today?
If You’ve Already Rested For Weeks And Your Problem Shows No Sign Of Recovery, Let Me Help. I Know Why It Hasn’t Healed And I’m Here To Tell You That There’s Hope!
It’s no surprise to me that so many frustrated runners knock on my door and ask for help. The short of it is that most muscle and running injuries can never heal properly if left alone.
In spite of what some people think, rest is never the answer to solve any running or muscle injury. In all of my years as a physical therapist, I haven’t witnessed any injury in any sport that’s been helped by prolonged rest. Sure, the pain will diminish with rest but being pain free at rest is not exactly the goal. What about the scar tissue that builds every day you rest? It obstructs the muscle or ligament making it tight, stiff, inflexible and ready to tear again at any time. This scenario will only worsen as the days pass and it’s the number one reason why most runners breakdown within weeks of starting up again.
At AIDPPT, we know just what to do to stop that. The protocol involves lots of skilled deep massage, introducing exercises and exercising (there’s a BIG difference) at precisely the right time and looking at your lower back to confirm that problems aren’t coming from there, because so often they do! We may need to also look at your feet to check for a muscle imbalance or advise specific exercises that will make you stronger and more flexible, resulting in a lesser chance of being injured again.
When we do all of that for you, we can guarantee that you will see an improvement and it will happen fast. EVERYTHING that we suggest is geared towards you being active again, as fast as is safely possible. My team will work with you to create a program that will let you get active and exercising safely, right this minute.
Here's Who I Can Help...
If you can answer YES to any of the following statements then you’re in the right place to get advice from our top running physical therapist specialists:
- You’re a runner with a dull ache or even severe pain in your Achilles tendon
- You’re a runner suffering pain on the OUTSIDE of your knee caused by a tight IT Band (a.k.a. runner’s knee)
- You might have shin splints, a calf strain or an ankle sprain and there’s no signs of a significant improvement
- You can’t understand why the hamstring you injured weeks ago, and the one that seems to be fine when you walk or jog, won’t let you pick up the pace without getting tighter and more painful
- You’re a runner or jogger with a stiff achy and possibly painful lower back
- You value the enjoyment you get from your health too much to risk suffering any long-term complications and as a result want to seek the best advice possible
- You aren’t interested in the “painkillers and rest” protocol advised by the GP nor do you like the generic exercises frequently given by other physical therapists

“Look What Our HEALTHIER, HAPPIER and MORE ACTIVE Clients Had To Say After Just a Few Short Weeks!”!
It was so thoughtful of you to call and check up on me. I am so sorry that I cannot continue with the treatment at this time because I don’t have the time to make it work right now. I have my exercises that you gave me for my specific needs. The marathon was AMAZING. 4:27:28 - 32 minute PR. I’ve taken the rest of the fall/early winter to work on my form and foot strike. I’ve been doing a ton of strength training, lots of rolling, and been keeping my miles short and alone to focus on my form. It’s been hard, but I can feel a difference and I am FINALLY not in pain any more!!! Thank you for setting me down the right path. Our time together was worth it’s weight in gold!Erin, Early 30s, Ashburn
I came to AIDPPT because I had pain and inflammation in my hip adductor muscle due to a running injury. I found the team geared towards athletes and I quickly realized the therapists were all athletes themselves and therefore very reliable and familiar with typical running injuries. AIDPPT absolutely exceeded my expectations. When I came into the clinic I was 5 weeks away from my marathon and the staff knew how important this was to me and set me up a rehabilitation plan which worked. The friendly and knowledgeable staff genuinely care about their clients' success and help them get back on track.Rebecca Mid 40s, Brambleton
I have a rather long history of physical therapy beginning with a nagging case of plantar fasciitis. My personal trainer referred me to AID PPT after my attempts of ridding myself of it failed. The service I received at AID PPT was exceptional, including the friendly front desk staff to all the therapists, assistants, and many interns. I returned to AID PPT several times for various injuries. At one point they had concerns about a diagnosis from a doctor and recommended I get a second opinion and additional testing. They were right as I ended up with a fractured hip, which is not what was originally diagnosed. I worked with AID PPT through that injury and got back to running again in a few months. A lot of the AID PPT team are also runners so they understand us and our desire to get back to running as soon as possible injury free! They also worked on my running form to prevent future injuries. AID PPT exceeded my expectations, they really care about their patients and work very hard to get us pain free and back to enjoying our sports and hobbies. I have referred several of my friends to AID and they have also had success.Sandy Early 50s, Ashburn
