If you are looking to work with a physical therapist who CARES about you and is committed to your lifelong health, then Dr. Nick is the person you want to work with! I was in the middle of training for my first marathon when an injury derailed me. Dr. Nick worked with me to take care of the pain quickly and then develop exercises that pin-pointed my specific weak areas. He was attentive, responsive, and dedicated to me reaching my goals. I am happy to say I am back on track with training and running with confidence! Thank you, Dr. Nick!

Common LIES People are told before coming to Gray Duck

Just “rest” or take some time off from running and it’ll go away (then months later they’re still suffering…).

It’s “normal” with age and you just have to tolerate it.

You Need to get an expensive MRI so we can see what is "causing" your pain

Do this "stretch" to completely take your pain away! 

Just take some pills and you'll be able to run for the rest of your life.

Surgery and injections are the only options.

Or our least favorite... "running is bad for you"

The Truth About Pain With Running Is...

Resting it doesn’t change anything. You might get a small temporary relief, but then when you get active again, you’ll still be suffering from the same pain and stiffness (I bet you’ve already experienced it!).

It’s not normal to get pain with running and stiffness as you get older! Just because something is common does NOT mean it is normal!

MRI's give FALSE answers. The exact same things are seen in the exact same frequency of MRIs in those with and WITHOUT pain. In fact non painful feet and ankles look the same as painful ones in the same person comparing sides!

There is no secret stretch! Stretching has been been thoroughly proven to have no long lasting effect or positive impact on performance or injury prevention.

Pain pills are addicting, dangerous, and can cause a lot of other problems with your body. Pain is an important signal for change much like hunger! Ignoring it or covering it up will have MAJOR consequences in the future.

Surgery and injections are not the only options. It’s just the only options your surgeon can offer you. 

Running has actually been shown to be healthy for your joints!

If You've Made It This Far Let Us Be Up Front About What You Need To Do to Fix Your Pain With Running

Step 1:

Understand Why Your Pain Has Continued

If You’re Currently Living With Pain While Running, Here’s 9 Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

1. You thought it would go away on it’s own – but it didn’t

2. You went to the doctor who told you to rest and take painkillers – but the pills did nothing to help your pain with running, and as soon as they wore off pain struck again

3. A family member, or a friend, told you that everybody gets pain with running as they get older, so you just accepted it

4. You tried other Healthcare Professionals, maybe even a Physical Therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help, or at least didn't help long term

5. You tried YouTube exercises or a stretching routine from a friend that "worked for them" but they either didn’t do a thing, or made your running pain ten times worse

6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your pain was so bad, but all that did was make it feel even more stiff and tight

7. You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix the pain, they might've even felt nice and relaxing or provided some relief, but didn’t do anything to fix it long term

8. You were told you needed orthotics or a specific shoe to be able to get through life with your foot or ankle pain.

9. Your supplementary strength training is high rep/low load or based in HIIT

If you’ve tried any or all of these things already this is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work – you are closer to finding the thing that does!

Step 2:

TAKE OWNERSHIP and Take Action

 "What Can I Do To Run Pain Free?"

1. First off, you need to make a decision about getting help: So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that their running pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed…or it gets worse. 

2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises ... CORRECTLY: One of the best things to help you ease your running pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises. This does not mean learning 30 tips and tricks but committing to mastering a few that give the biggest bang for your time, no "packets" of therapy exercises. But the right exercises given is only one part of the process. In our E-book above we gave you the actual exercises we use in clinic, the difficulty is in correctly using them to make an actual change in your life and allow you to move freely again – and make sure that the problems don’t come back anytime soon (or aggravate your hip even more like some exercises do). 

3. Get real, “hands-on” Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is proven to help people with running injuries even more so than surgery, injections, or pain medications. In fact at Gray Duck Physical Therapy it’s one of the most common injuries we see. If your pain is affecting your running, it is affecting who you are. We know runners NEED to run! Physical therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.
