chiropractor for runners

Just wanted to drop you a line thanking you so much for last night's workshop. I incorporated the simple techniques into my run tonight and I ran faster than I ever have, had more energy at the end - never ended up feeling winded or tired and actually felt like I could have gone another couple of miles - and my knees didn't hurt and aren't hurting now at all! Thank you so much. I'm thrilled and looking forward to my long run this Saturday to see what a difference it makes there.


Dr. Krohse was referred to me by a colleague and quickly became a trusted care provider for both chiropractic adjustments as well as ART treatments.  As an amateur athlete/triathlete, I was battling issues with neck pain/headaches and knee pain.  Adjustments as well as ART helped get me into a maintenance mode with my overall wellness, but I continued to have some nagging issues with my right knee.

We were able to schedule time to go through the techniques and philosophy of Pain-Free Running.  At first I was in denial about my heel striking but after reviewing the video and discussing some of the drills, it was obvious I had room for improvement.  Initially the changes felt awkward after decades of my old running style and my running times per mile were definitely slower and not impressive.  What I did note fairly quickly was the reduction of pain in my knee which has since gone away.  It's been over two years since I've changed my technique and I have been able to cut close to a minute per mile off my average pace in Half Ironman races (sub-7:45's now) as well as feel my running is more effortless.  


Already dealing with an injury or just want to be proactive & make sure everything is working? Schedule a $37 Athlete's workup & First Treatment!

We'll start by learning about any problems you're dealing with as well as the goals you're working toward. Then we'll take you through ranges of motion and check the function of each of the 24 spinal bones. I'll check the function of 16 muscles in the legs to make sure there's not decreased function in muscles that might tip you toward injury or keep you from healing.

Any needed X-rays are included in this workup and if indicated we'll do a Motion Study to see exactly which spinal bones are moving and which are stuck, causing dysfunction and pain.

If you are currently running we'll get a video of your running form to analyze.

We'll review any findings and recommendations.  If recommended, your first treatment (adjustments, Active Release muscle work, etc) will be included.

Your Priority is our priority!
