“AJ is a great PT to work with–and my wife is Physical Therapist as well, so I know a couple things 😉 I had an issue with my foot/calf, and AJ quickly diagnosed the issue. He offered helpful exercises that I could do while maintaining my training plan for a trail ultramarathon. It’s great to address the root problem rather than just masking the symptoms. I have no doubt I will utilize his services again, specifically with strength training, dry needling, and/or run coaching. (Hopefully no more injuries for awhile though!) If you are a runner or just an active/adventurous person, I highly recommend Up and Running Physical Therapy.”

“AJ has been a great resource to help my running – I’ve seen him for a couple of different things over the past several years and it has been helpful every time. AJ clearly has a lot of expertise and I appreciate his dedication to research supported practices in the field – he stays up to date and targets his interventions toward what will be most effective. I also appreciate his knowledge about running dynamics and the fact that (unlike other medical professionals I have seen) he doesn’t just tell me to stop running while my injury heals. Highly recommend!“
