About the clinic, myself, and my “why”

“The one who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. Those who walk alone are likely to find themselves in places no one has ever been before.”
- Albert Einstein

Run the World Standards

exceptional and verifiable care that exceeds your expectations

Run the World is here to help you take control of your world. Frequently reading and reviewing research, allows me to stay up to date on the most current and effective therapies. Using a combination of specialized technology, education, exercise, manual therapy, and mobility techniques, your goals will be closer than you think.

I'm Alison, founder and owner of Run the World.

I am a Doctor of physical therapy and Michigan native with a long history of running related injuries. After extremely sub par care, I made it my mission to be better. To create a clinic that listened to, validated, and understood runners. One that uses research, evidence based techniques, and specialized equipment to give you the best possible outcome.

The equipment helps set Run the World above other clinics. Using two high speed, slow motion cameras to capture all angles of motion while you run and combining that with a lengthy history, strength assessment, and dynamic movement tests creates a clear picture of you as a runner. In addition, working with the same physical therapist through injury rehab, return to running, and performance improvement can be incredibly beneficial for several reasons.

Firstly, I will have a deep understanding of your body and its limitations and strengths, having worked with you during the rehab process. This knowledge will enable me to design a tailored program for you that is specific to your needs and goals. Secondly, I will be able to track your progress over time and make adjustments to your program as necessary, ensuring that you are continually challenged and making progress. Finally, the relationship we build together can be an incredibly supportive and motivating factor in your journey towards recovery and improved performance. Having a trusted ally who understands your body and your goals can help to keep you on track and motivated to succeed.

My passion is treating anyone who wishes to improve their health and wellness. Whether you are a new runner, a weekend warrior, collegiate athlete, or ultra runner, I’ve got your back.
Welcome to Run the World.
