Are you tired of running with chronic knee, Achilles, or foot pain? Does pain limit you from enjoying your daily run? Have you tried every running stretch or exercise on YouTube with no success? Are you desperate to know what is causing your pain and how you can start to run pain-free again?

Emerald City Runner,


Hello, my name is Dr. Kelly Vanhove and I specialize in treating running pain and injuries. If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then I want to let you know that you are in the right place. At Rehab United Seattle we specialize in treating the recreational athlete, most notably, runners of all levels.

Running injuries can be annoying, I know as I have suffered from my own running injuries over the years as I ramped up training for marathons and half-marathon races. These aches, pains, and injuries can leave you frustrated and wondering if you will be able to compete in an event you signed up for months ago; or possibly doing cross-training recommended by a doctor that has you questioning if you will ever be able to enjoy a run again.

When a running injury stops you from taking part in something you love, it’s important to be seen by an expert, particularly one that specializes in treating running injuries. At Rehab United Seattle, we utilize an Applied Functional Biomechanics approach to running, allowing us to have an astute knowledge of running mechanics and how each one of your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints biomechanically react during a run. This deep understanding of the human body will help us to successfully treat you, the runner that has long suffered from shin splints, Achilles tendonitis, or the dreaded ITB pain.

Speaking of ITB pain, we constantly get calls from frustrated runners telling us they are at a loss on where to go for their nagging ITB pain that they foam roll daily, or that runner who has been suffering from Achilles tendonitis for the past 6 months that their main treatment has been eccentric heel raises. Running injuries can be challenging to treat especially when you focus on treating the symptoms of your pain. At Rehab United Seattle we specialize in treating the root cause of your pain not just your symptoms. By treating the root of your pain, it will allow you to heal faster and get back to participating in what you love: running! To help you get a better understanding of how we treat runners, we have put together a FREE EBOOK, “7 Simple Tips to End Running Pain”. Just click on the “Get this Free Guide” button below and the ebook will be all yours!

If you can say “YES” to any of the following, then the specialized service we provide along with the FREE ebook is right for you:

  • You have annoying aches or sharp pain in your foot, Achilles, or knee for more than 7 days; and every time you go for a run.

  • Your running pain ends up limiting you from walking, squatting, or participating in other recreational activities.

  • Your pain limits your running distance, speed, and performance

  • You’ve experienced pain that keeps you from a full night of sleep

  • You value and enjoy running and dislike the idea of resting or having to cross-train

  • You would rather not take medication or get a cortisone injection for your pain.


If you said “YES” to any of the questions above, then you are a perfect fit for our specialized functional care at Rehab United Seattle for running injuries. We are Seattle’s leading experts in treating running injuries and will be able to help you achieve your goals of getting back to running pain-free.
