The Ultimate List of Running Rehab Specialists, Experts, Therapists

I often get asked about what running experts I can recommend for injury, running gait assessment, and treatment.

You know I have been to UVA Speed Clinic three times, and I made it pretty clear which experts I trust through my mentions of Team Ice Cream, but I know I have friends all over the world who would also like to find people to help.  So I dug deep, looked for the best I know, and asked them who they would recommend, and here is what I ended up with.

This is by no means conclusive, and I intend to add to this list, but thought it would be a good starting point ūüôā

As I mentioned, I will add experts to the list, but only once one of the people I look up to in the particular field¬†can verify them as a trusted source. If you aren’t able to go to any of those places then I have also gathered some experts together on my Coming Back from Injuries Podcast Series.

Hope this helps!
