Many People Suffer Needlessly With Running Pain Because They're Told...​

❌ Just “rest it” and it’ll be fine (then months later they’re still suffering…).

❌ It’s “normal” with age.

❌ Take some pain pills and you'll be fine.

❌ Changing up your run routine is the only option.

The Truth Is...​

✅ Resting it doesn’t change anything. You might get a small temporary relief, but then when you get active again, you’ll still be suffering from running pain (I bet you’ve already experienced it!).

✅ It’s not normal to get running injuries as you get older!

✅ Pain pills are addicting, dangerous, and can cause a lot of other problems with your body.

✅ Changing your runs is not the only option. It’s just the only option your family doctor can recommend.

At Athletes' Potential Columbus, We Help Active Adults And Athletes Get Rid of Pain And Get Back To An Active Life Without Painkillers, Surgery or Giving Up The Activities They Love.

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have pain with running. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…

A family member tells you to try a certain stretch.

A colleague mentions going to a massage therapist.

The “experts” on YouTube recommend doing a certain exercise.

A friend suggests going to a yoga class.

❌ All while the doctor tells you to rest.​

It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices…what will happen if you don’t make the right one?

Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.

When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like a Running Injury…

You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or being dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life.

Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your pain and keeping it from ever coming back.

To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.

At Athletes' Potential Columbus, We've Created A 3-Step Approach To Get Rid Of Your Pain And Make Sure It Doesn't Come Back Again.



Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”

Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

After working with lots of people with running pain, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.



Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.

You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, take painkillers, or start thinking about surgery.

Sometimes, those things bring temporary relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.

Every person’s cause of running pain is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.

Our goal at Athletes' Potential is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!

We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created our Discovery Visit.

Our Discovery Visits are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery Visit you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!



This is when the big transformation occurs. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…

✅ …Get back to running without fear of the pain coming back.

✅ …Be able to get back to your favorite routes.

✅ …Be able to go that extra mile on the trail without worrying about getting hurt.

✅ …Get back to your pre-injury running style you love.

Our most successful clients are motivated and determined to reclaim their active lifestyle, even if they feel stuck. You no longer have to sacrifice the activities you love due to issues that can be resolved.

Let’s talk about how we can help you feel like yourself again.
