Meet January Muhlbeier
Running is hands-down one of the most versatile and accessible forms of full-body exercise. All you really need is a pair of shoes (usually), a surface to run on, and you’re good to go! The possibilities are endless, whether it’s trail running, cross-country, barefoot, winter, sprinting, jogging, 5k’s, 10k’s, half marathons, marathons, ultra-distance, triathlons, Ironmans, treadmill, track, or just chasing after your kids, your dog, or your secret pet raccoon named Jerry (we won’t tell anyone!).
The beauty of running is that it’s something we can enjoy throughout our lives. We start as kids, and I’ve had the pleasure of treating people of all ages and experience levels.
I’m always in awe of runners. The passion and dedication you put into running are truly inspiring. That’s why my first continuing education course after school was all about running injury treatment and prevention. I’ve since worked with all sorts of runners, from casual weekend warriors to ultra-marathon enthusiasts. For four years, I was part of a multi-disciplinary team that included a sports medicine physician, an orthotist, a running coach, and me, the physiotherapist! We helped runners recover from injuries and fine-tune their technique to reach new personal bests.
Working with so many different runners has shown me the importance of a holistic approach to help you achieve your goals. I can’t wait to meet you and get started on this exciting journey together!
Running Specific Assessments
My aim is to create running assessments tailored to your needs, focusing on your concerns, strengths, and weaknesses. No matter if you’re a sprinter or a long-distance runner, I’m here to help you move more efficiently. We’ll dive into movement analysis and physical assessments by carrying out running-specific tasks and using video to examine your technique.
Together, we’ll develop an action plan to ease your pain and fine-tune your running style, boosting your confidence with every stride. Your customized interventions may involve running-focused workouts, movement drills, muscle re-patterning exercises, hands-on manual therapy, and additional treatments as needed.
Some common issues we often tackle include hip and knee pain, hamstring tendinosis, glute discomfort, back pain, ankle sprains, and Achilles tendinosis. So, let’s get started on helping you conquer your running challenges and reach your full potential!
