Running Injuries Keeping You from Your Personal Best?

If you’re dealing with nagging issues like knee pain, shin splints, or muscle imbalances, you’re not alone—especially in San Diego where the running scene is big. With so many of us missing out on local races, training days, and just enjoying a breezy jog, it’s clear that a specialized approach to running recovery is long overdue.

Regrettably, many runners endure unnecessary suffering due to common misconceptions. They are often advised to merely “rest” and expect improvement, only to find themselves still struggling months later.

There’s a widespread belief that such discomfort is an inevitable aspect of aging or that reliance on pain medication is a harmless, quick fix. Additionally, altering your running habits is frequently presented as the sole viable solution.

However, the reality is quite different. Simply resting provides only fleeting relief and does not address the underlying issues. It’s a myth that running injuries are a normal part of aging. Over-reliance on painkillers can be harmful and lead to various other health complications. Moreover, modifying your running routines isn’t the exclusive solution; it’s often the only recommendation from general practitioners.

This is truly and one of a kind experience. It is one on one with the doctor. You are not being handed off several times while the doctor works with other patients at the same time. I enjoyed working with Dr. Grayson on my treatment plan to get rid of my chronic knee and shoulder pain from running and swimming. Dr. Grayson was able to get me pain free and helped me reach my half marathon race goals.

Dr. Grayson developed a program to address pain and mobility restriction resulting from hip replacement surgery complications. He evaluated my condition, diagnosed what treatment was necessary, and through hands-on manipulation and mobilization, supervised stretches, and self-directed exercises alleviated the pain and increased my mobility. I highly recommend Dr. Grayson.
