ITB Syndrome: ITB tightness causing knee pain? Our experts can prescribe targeted stretches and strengthening exercises to address ITB tightness and restore optimal knee function.

Calf Tightness or Strains: Tight calves impacting your stride? We’ll use a combination of manual therapy, stretching, and strengthening exercises to loosen up the tight muscles and prevent calf strains.

Knee Pain: Whether it’s patellofemoral pain or runner’s knee, we’ll assess your running mechanics, muscle imbalances, and biomechanical factors to alleviate knee pain and prevent future flare-ups.
