Whether a runner's goal is to improve his or her time, increase speed or stay fit, it's essential to maintain correct form to prevent injury. Physical therapists can advise runners on proper form, training methods, strategies for preventing injuries, and proper shoe selection and work with them to develop a plan, tailored to their specific needs, for successful running. Physical therapists can also evaluate, diagnose and treat runners who have sustained a running-related injury.

If you have ever experienced low back pain, you are certainly not alone. According to a 2012 survey by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), 61 percent of Americans said they have experienced low back pain, and of those, 69 percent felt it has affected their daily lives. The good news is that most cases of low back pain are not serious and will respond well to conservative, proven treatments such as physical therapy.

There are some conditions that women may be hesitant to discuss with their healthcare providers. The good news is that conditions such as incontinence, pelvic pain, lymphedema, those that occur during pregnancy and following birth, and others, can all be treated by a physical therapist, often with solutions that do not involve surgery or long-term use of prescription medications.
