Running Injuries

How to Relieve Pain While Running... Without Injections, Pain Medications, or the Need for a Support or Brace…

If you responded yes to any of the above, you have found the right place!
It’s a common misconception that running will hurt your body, causing many individuals unnecessary discomfort and being misled to believe….
But In Reality…

Here at Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness, We Specialize in Assisting Athletes and Active Adults in Returning to the Workouts and Sports They Love Without Resorting to Surgery, Limiting Their Participation in Those Activities, or Taking Pain Medication.

If you’re having trouble running due to discomfort, it might be difficult to know what to do. No doubt you’ve considered several potential solutions, such as…

Attempting to choose amongst all these options is overwhelming. What are the repercussions of making the wrong choice? What are the repercussions of making the wrong choice?

When faced with a choice, the majority of individuals freeze up. They sit on the problem for weeks, months, or even years.

When Addressing a Critical Issue, Such as a Running Injury, It Is Essential To...

It is crucial that you select a competent healthcare practitioner. If you don’t, you could have to have an invasive operation (when it wasn’t necessary) or rely on highly addictive medicines for the rest of your life.

To permanently alleviate your pain, you must seek out the “least-invasive,” most natural solution available.

To do this, you need a physician that is interested in investigating the root cause of your pain rather than simply treating its symptoms. After that, you’ll have a lasting answer to your issues.

At Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness, we have developed a three-stage procedure to eliminate your pain and prevent it from returning.


The way they handled our medical system is frustrating. You wait for weeks or even months to obtain an appointment, and then when you do, you only get 10 minutes to talk to the physicians before they have to rush off to the next patient, leaving you sitting there thinking, “What just happened?”

This is typical procedure even for physical therapy facilities. They aren’t caring, they move too quickly, and your therapist doesn’t have time to touch the areas of your body that ache.

That’s why hearing your side of the story is the very first thing we’ll do.

Working with so many people with running-related discomfort has taught us that no two cases are the same. The human body, the human experience, and the human capacity to feel pain are all unique to each individual.

That’s why the first thing we’ll do is sit down and have a candid talk so you can share your background. By doing so, we may learn not just about the physical symptoms you’re experiencing, but also the broader effects they’re having on your daily life.


These days, it’s not uncommon for people to receive a “diagnosis,” or official medical label, for whatever is wrong with them. It might have been prescribed by a doctor, confirmed by diagnostic testing, or discovered via web research.

There was a chance that you would have been given no other options but bed rest, pain medication, or contemplation of surgery.

Such measures may alleviate symptoms in the short term, but they do nothing to fix the underlying issue.

Running injuries can have a wide variety of origins. No two people ever have the same issue due to the same factor.

At Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness, we want to help you feel better by identifying and treating the root cause of your discomfort.

We realize that you may still be on the fence about whether or not physical therapy is the best option for you. And that’s why we came up with the Discovery Visit.

Our Discovery Visits are created exclusively for those people who are suspicious, unsure, or have even been let down in the past.Find out what’s wrong, how long it will take to remedy, and rest easy knowing that your issue can be remedied using natural means during the Discovery Visit!


The moment of truth has arrived. If you want to, we can design a specific strategy for you to…

…Get back to driving the roads you know and love…
…Achieve your full potential on the path, and then some.
…Return to the enjoyable running style you had before your injury.

Those that are serious about getting back into shape are the ones we see the most success with. (Even if they think they’re stuck right now!)

Interested in learning more about our services and rates before committing to a visit?

You don’t have to give up the runs you love because of things that can be fixed. Sincerely, Dr. Jacqualynn Gordon, PT, DPT & Dr. Joanna Rochelle, PT, DPT Founders of Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness

What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness In Encinitas.

- Adam H.

Onyx Physical Therapy and Wellness is a first-rate PT facility. I came to them after I hurt my shoulder doing overhead press and it lingered for 5 months. I finally reached out to Jacqualynn from Onyx PT and she was absolutely amazing. She was incredibly knowledgeable and adept at diagnosing my injury and the best way to rehab my shoulder. Their technology platform, where they sent me videos of the exercises and stretches I should be performing, were very helpful and spot-on. After about 3-4 weeks, I felt a 90% improvement in my shoulder. Onyx PT uses a variety of modalities and all of them helped me recover from my injury. Moreover, their office is modern and beautiful and in the heart of downtown Encinitas. I cannot recommend Onyx Physical Therapy and Wellness enough…they are the absolute best!!
