Raritan Physical Therapy provides rehab services to help rebound from many different kinds of runner’s injuries, from runner’s knee to iliotibial band syndrome. Our services help runners living in Edison, NJ and nearby communities quickly recover from running injuries and get back to regular running sessions. Nobody wants to stop doing something they enjoy because of an injury.

Runner’s injuries can happen any time you run, no matter the distance. While some conditions, such as iliotibial band syndrome, are more common in long distance runners, it’s very easy for runners of all skill levels to suffer from shin splints, plantar fasciitis, or runner’s knee. Getting physical therapy as soon as possible after the injury can reduce its healing time and ensure that you limit further damage from the injury.

Our runner’s injury rehab services start with an assessment of the injury, as well as a discussion with you regarding your goals for therapy. Do you have an upcoming race you plan on participating in? We’ll want to know so we can set realistic expectations from the start. We want you to understand all available treatment options, and we will educate you on how to prevent recurrence. We’ll use this information to craft an individualized treatment plan.

We utilize a variety of techniques to treat runner’s injuries. These include massage, stability exercises, and stretching. Our team of knowledgeable staff members has experience working with runners to improve mobility, reduce pain, and get back on the pavement.
