“Do You Want to Get Back To Running At Your Best? Are Aches and Pains Preventing You From Reaching Your Running Goals?”
Don’t sacrifice the joy of running, and activities you love, over problems that can be fixed. That’s why we made this just for you.
A Personal Message From Owner, April Erickson...
The Truth Is...
At Runners’ Edge Alaska We Strive To Help Recreational And Elite Alaskan Runners Of All Ages Return To Running Safely, Effectively And Pain-Free, For Life.
It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices… what will happen if you don’t make the right one?
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
When It Comes To Solving Something Like Sports Related Pain...
You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it is not necessary) or end up being dependent on addictive painkillers the rest of your life.
Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your pain and keeping it from ever coming back.
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.
At Runners’ Edge Alaska 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
Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to talk to the doctor for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient, and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”.
Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.
This is why our first step is to listen to you story.
After working with lots of people with sports and activity related pain, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.
That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on, not just with your body, but also with how it’s impacting your life.
Step #2 - Find Out WHY Running Pain Started
Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.
You may have been told that your only choice is to rest, stop the activity, or consider medications to ease the pain.
Sometimes, these things bring temporarily relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.
Every person’s cause of pain is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.
Our goal at Runners’ Edge Alaska is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!
We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free taster session. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)
Our Taster Sessions are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Taster Session 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!
