A Personal Message From Dr. AJ Cohen

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!

It’s very common to think that back pain is nothing and that it will go away on its own. It’s also common to blame it on “sleeping awkwardly” or that it’s just something “everyone” suffers from at some point in their life.

If that’s happening to you, you’re definitely not alone, and we hear this type of thing all the time.

In fact, back pain in runners and athletes is a very common problem we see in our clinic.

Take Tamara T. As An Example...

“AJ came highly recommended by some of the guys from my gym, and he did not disappoint. Came in with some severe low back pain and very limited mobility, AJ helped me work through my injury without having to give up being active. He gave me tools to help me for years to come and if I’m ever in need of PT I would go right back.“

Before Coming Into Up And Running PT, Many Of Our Patients Suffering From Back Pain Are Told…

The Truth About Back Pain For Runners And Athletes Is...

"We Help Runners And Active Adults In The Fort Collins Area Overcome Injury And Be Stronger Than Ever, Avoid Unnecessary Time Off, All Without Medications, Injections, Or Surgery."

See What Elizabeth J. Said About Up And Running PT...

“AJ has helped me with several different issues that I have suffered from including plantar fasciitis and back pain. AJ is extremely knowledgeable and is more specialized in running than anyone else out there. He tells you how it is and doesn’t offer “bandaid fixes” for things. He helped me find ways to keep training through injury and eventually get me to a place where I could run sustainably and healthily. AJ really is different from other PTs in the best way possible. I can’t recommend him enough!“
With so many options out there, it can be overwhelming to know exactly what you should do when you’ve got a back injury.
All while the doctor tells you to rest and take some pills.

When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like Back Pain And Stiffness…

You must choose the right provider for your health.

If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or become dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life. Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your back pain and stiffness and keeping it from ever returning.

To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place.

That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.
