About Us

Thanks for your interest in "The Injured Runner"! My name is Bryan Whitesides. I am a runner and a physical therapist.

 

I was actually headed for a career in engineering when I had my first exposure to therapy. I was running competitively in college and strained my calf. Since I had access to the training room, I got some help and was back on my way sooner than usual.

 

A career based on helping people get back to what they like doing appealed to me, so I made the switch. I must admit, not having to take as much chemistry also tipped the scale.

 

My wife and I have each been running for over twenty five years. I have been a physical therapist for seventeen years and have been able to treat hundreds of runners – from beginners to highly competitive athletes.

 

We have developed The Injured Runner with the intent of helping runners get back to what they love to do. As I searched the internet and read books or articles on running injuries I found the information to be limited, out of date or difficult to access.I hope that you will find this site to be the most comprehensive, useful, and up to date available.

 

I welcome your comments and ideas. Together, we can help more people experience the joys of running.

 

Sincerely,

 

Bryan Whitesides PT, MPT, OCS
