Runner Injuries

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

Many people suffer unnecessarily with running pain because they’re told…

At UpSlope Physical Therapy & Performance, We Help Runners get back on the course.

If you experience pain while running, it can be tricky to decide on the best course of action. People usually offer a lot of options, including…

Having too many choices can be daunting, and it’s hard to know if you’re making the right decision.

Most individuals struggle to come up with a plan for what they should do next. They go days, weeks, months (sometimes even years!) without doing anything at all.

When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like a Running Injury…

Picking the right health care provider is crucial; if you don’t, you might get unnecessary surgery or end up hooked on painkillers.

Investing in the “least-invasive” and most natural treatment is key to preventing your pain from returning.

To be able to do that, you must not only treat the pain but also find a doctor who is interested in determining why the discomfort occurred in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a solution that will last.

At UpSlope PT & Performance we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 - We Want To Listen To Your Story

It’s beyond frustrating when you have to wait weeks or even months for a 10-minute appointment with a doctor who rushes off to their next patient as soon as they’re done with you. You’re left feeling confused and wondering what just happened.

Even most physical therapy clinics, for example, are like this. They’re unresponsive, hurried, and your therapist doesn’t have the time to actually massage where you’re hurting.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

We’ve had a lot of experience working with many people who have running pain. We understand that no two individuals are alike. Every individual has a unique body, past, and distinct kinds of discomfort.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation during which you may share your experience. We obtain a thorough knowledge of what’s going on not just with your body but also how it’s affecting your life by doing so.

Step #2 - Find Out WHY The Pain With Running Started

Many people have been given a medical diagnosis for what is causing their symptoms. Perhaps their doctor informed them of it, or perhaps tests revealed the diagnosis, or maybe you discovered it on the internet.

You could have been advised that the only alternative was to rest, take painkillers, or consider surgery.

Sometimes, they provide brief alleviation, but they don’t address the root cause of the problem.

We all have different reasons for our running pains. No two people share the same problem, caused by the exact same thing.

At UpSlope PT & Performance, we want to discover the root of your pain so that it disappears for good.

We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created our Discovery Visit.

Our Discovery Visits are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery Visit you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!


This is when the magic happens. We create a unique strategy to help you…

…Get back to running without fear of the pain coming back.
…Be able to get back to your favorite courses
…Get back to your pre-injury running

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active lifestyle. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

You dont have to sacrifice the runs you love over problems that can be fixed.

If you are looking for a highly skilled physical therapist, Frankie is exceptional! I went from limited movement, pain with a buldging disc at L4-5 to fully functional and pain free in 10 sessions. Highly worth it, I can’t recommend Frankie and UpSlope Physical Therapy enough!

I had been having shoulder pain for a year or more--pain with activity, and awakening in the night with a deep ache. Pain was definitely limiting my resistance training, such as push ups, bench press, over shoulder presses. I worked for 6 sessions with Dr. Frankie at UpSlope. She showed me stretches and exercises, and did some deep tissue treatments. We worked on mobility, stability and strength. She set up a program for me to do on my own after making sure I was doing things correctly. I am now PAIN FREE, and back to all the movements and exercises I want to do. No more waking up in pain. I would recommend UpSlope and Dr. Frankie to anyone with shoulder pain!

Dr. Frankie is fantastic. She developed a complete program over the course of a few months to rehab my injured shoulder which was dramatically impacting my everyday life and my favorite sport, climbing. She worked with me to alleviate pain, increase my range of motion, and build strength + give me the tools to avoid issues moving forward--couldn't be happier with the results.

I choose Upslope over other places from their google reviews, they did NOT disappoint. Pricing was fair, communication, follow up and professionalism was excellent. I had Frankie help me start to rehab a shoulder injury over the course of 8 weeks and I'm finally on the path to repairing that issue, still a long way to go, but she really helped me get back into the swing of the progress to heal it up so I can get back to working out and daily activities.
