Physical Therapy here is skilled and focused, as it is intended to be. Our goal is to get you feeling better fast, and to get to the root of the problem so that the running injury is resolved completely.

Our Methodology

We utilize a hands on approach with extensive manual therapy including joint mobilization, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), dry needling, cupping, myofascial release, active soft tissue release, and soft tissue mobilization. We also specialize in functional exercise prescription, biomechanics, gait training and run form re-education, taping, and orthotics (over the counter recommendations and custom orthotics fabrication) when needed.

We treat all lower extremity injuries as well as specialize in lower extremity post-operative rehabilitation and running injuries.

The Running PTs Cary NC Dry Needling Gait Analysis Athlete Recovery Running Injury quote icon

“I developed hip pain during pregnancy that persisted after birth and has prevented me from sleeping on my right side now for a total of 6 months. Lee Welch did a 10 minute dry needling session and my pain is gone. GONE. The sensation of needling was so minimal in discomfort and so highly effective. I can’t believe he kicked my pain to the curb with one session. He also gave me physical therapy exercises I could do at home to manage things myself. He is professional, knowledgeable, highly skilled, efficient, and friendly. Highly recommend. Thanks Lee!!”
