The Stanford Runner's Injury Clinic is committed to treating runners of all levels and ages. Michael Fredericson, MD, is director of the clinic, a former collegiate distance runner, and one of the leading national authorities on running medicine.
For the past 18 years, Dr. Fredericson has been the team doctor for the Stanford track & field teams, a national team physician with USA Track & Field, and on the Scientific Advisory Board for Runner's World Magazine. He has been at the forefront of studying overuse injuries in runners and has published over 75 scientific articles, 15 book chapters, and one book related to these efforts.
A thorough evaluation is performed on all athletes to determine the exact diagnosis, treatment plan, and correction of any biomechanical and training errors that will allow a return to regular pain-free running. 3-D gait analysis can be arranged at our Human Performance Lab, when indicated, for more complex cases.
Stanford's sports medicine experts offer RunSafe, a specialized wellness program for runners. The program provides personalized advice, injury prevention and performance enhancement using assessment and monitoring tools to help runners reach their goals.
