Physiotherapist Guided Running Programs

Using his knowledge as a physiotherapist, Mike is able to work with runners on a different level.  

  • Professional Guidance

    With the help of a physiotherapist, you can have a physical assessment and an individualized treatment plan alongside your running program.

  • Monthly Schedules

    Follow-up either in-person or online for your monthly running schedule developed to help you achieve your goals.

  • Race Planning

    Planning starts from day #1 as your program needs to be developed according to your goals.  Come race day, you will be ready!

Many running-related injuries can be prevented by following an individualized training program.  To make something individualized, many different variables have to be considered and having a comprehensive assessment is important. 

As a physiotherapist, Mike can provide supplementary exercise programs that are particular to you.

During training, it is very common to have some small aches and pains.  While some of these may be benign, working closely with a physiotherapist can help you to decipher them and act appropriately.

Your current and past medical history is reviewed prior to commencing.  If required, Mike can reach out to your medical providers and refer to various doctors to ensure it is safe for you to run.

If you are injured, Mike can perform a physical assessment, provide treatment and modify your running program.  If referral is necessary, Mike is one fax away from having you connected with a physician (ex. Sports Medicine).

To provide the best care, Mike has to be intimately involved in running schedules.  An estimated >80% of running injuries are a result of errors in training.  Once injured, training variables need to be closely monitored and adapted to make sure rehabilitation is optimal and the runner comes back strong.

Mike can also perform many "hands-on" treatment techniques to help with pain relief and function during your recovery.  He performes manual therapy techniques, IMS and much more!

Cardiovascular exercise has positive effects on all systems of the body.  It can be an amazing way to improve your health and resiliency to the hardships of life.  Running can be a phenomenal way to get cardiovascular exercise.  Even if you don't start out running (maybe you are walking), the health benefits can be immense. 

Often times runners need to be referred to other healthcare providers (ex. Sports Medicine).  Physiotherapists can refer directly to several other healthcare providers.

This website is all about running, but what about other forms of cardiovascular exercise and fitness?

We are not biased (well... maybe a little) to running in any way.  Many running programs have a cross training component.  If there are other forms of physical activity that you are interested in, they can be integrated into your running plan.
