Welcome To Up and Running Physical Therapy

At Up and Running Physical Therapy 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.

If you’re anything like me, running or exercising is your social life, your “me time”, your stress relief, and your healthy exercise.

As someone who has been an injured runner in the past, I truly understand how frustrating it can be to have an injury derail your training, your daily routine, or your big race.

Let Me Ask…

Does This Sound Like You?​

Here’s Some Stories From People We’ve Helped In The Past…

Jordan W.


“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.”

Paul F.

“Had some persistent pain that I wasn’t able to get rid of on my own. AJ came highly recommended from the local running community. He worked hard to make sure that I understood the “why” behind the process and helped ensure that the journey was laid out in a straightforward way. I very much appreciated how AJ worked with me to address my goals and make sure I felt supported through the rehab process. I also left feeling like I have the tools to prevent recurrence and be a stronger athlete.“

"I Like To Say That It’s Really Hard To Get Runners Back To Running Without Running."

Or it’s really hard to get anyone who loves to exercise, back to their workouts without doing them!

So don’t listen to the naysayers.

Your healthcare provider should be someone that’s in your corner, an advocate, coach, or mentor that provides the right information, the right exercises, and the right guidance at the right time.

Here at Up and Running PT, my number one priority is to get you back to running and exercising as quickly as possible and back to working towards your goals.

If this sounds like you, I’d love to work with you as soon as possible.
