We focus on interpreting all the information, in addition to your training history, relevant medical history and previous running injuries to determine the cause of your pain.

Why we are different

How does running injury treatment work?

Once the cause of your running injuries have been discovered from your evaluation, we will work with you to outline the phases of our treatment plan. Once you have achieved the necessary goals (improved strength, improved stability, decreased pain, etc), you progress to the next phase. The final phase is you running pain-free! We will work with you every step of the way.

What Kind of Running Injury Do I Have?

Achilles Tendinitis

Plantar Fasciitis

Shin Splints

Runner's Knee

IT Band Syndrome

How these running injuries are treated

Below are two columns on the different types of running injuries and how we treat them. 

Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendinitis is an overuse injury resulting in inflammation of the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscles to your heel. The most frequent presentation is stiffness in the Achilles tendon in the morning and after sitting. The stiffness will decrease with activity and will often disappear only to reappear minutes or hours after. The symptoms often worsen over time with higher pain intensity, longer duration of symptoms, and the pain may become increasingly sharp, especially at the insertion of the tendon.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the fibrous tissue (plantar fascia) that runs along the bottom of your foot. The pain is intense and experienced in the heel (where the arch begins). Initially, the symptoms are worse in the morning or following sitting and will decrease after a few minutes of walking or running. Plantar fasciitis can progress, if not properly treated, to being continuously painful while walking and standing. Symptoms often begin as the result of overuse (running), poor footwear, and muscle imbalances.

Shin Splints

Shin splints (medial tibial stress syndrome) is an overuse condition caused by inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue along the shin bone (tibia). In the early stages, symptoms are often lower leg tenderness, soreness, and tenderness. The symptoms can disappear with activity, creating a false sense of recovery.  If not properly treated, symptoms can become continuous and even progress to a stress reaction or a stress fracture. 

Runner's Knee

Runner’s knee (patellofemoral pain syndrome) is pain at the front of your knee, typically around the kneecap (patella). The pain is the result of overuse, as well as muscle imbalances and weaknesses.  

The pain (dull and aching) is usually first experienced with walking, going up and downstairs, after prolonged sitting. Without corrective treatment, the symptoms will worsen and be felt with running, kneeling, and squatting.

Iliotibial Band Syndrome

Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome is an overuse injury of the connective tissue along the outside of the thigh. The IT band becomes inflamed from friction against the outside of the knee. The symptoms are pain and tenderness of the lateral thigh and are often most intense just above the knee joint. Poor running form, trunk, and lower body weakness and instability, as well as training errors, contribute to the development of IT band syndrome.  

How is Achilles Tendinitis treated?

At Evolve, our comprehensive running analysis evaluates your lower body and spine range of motion, your flexibility/mobility, your muscle strength, your dynamic stability, and your biomechanics when running (high-speed video analysis).  

We also review your training history, past injuries, and footwear selection to develop a treatment plan to relieve your symptoms and address the cause of your Achilles tendinitis.

You can expect to receive hands-on treatment to address joint and soft tissue mobility, as well as exercises for improving your strength, dynamic stability, endurance, and power. Treatment is customized to help you achieve your goals.  

Clear instruction and communication between you and your physical therapist allow you to navigate a return to running pain-free. We accomplish this by progressing your rehabilitation with running specific exercises for both in the clinic and as part of your home exercise program.

Other Types Of Running Injuries We Treat

We treat an array of running injuries at Evolve and here are other types of injuries we treat:

Patellofemoral Syndrome (Runner's Knee)

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (Chondromalacia Patella or Runner’s Knee) is pain at the front and around your kneecap. It is a common running and jumping injury. Patellofemoral pain symptoms occur during activity; running, squatting, going up and down stairs, etc.

Compartment Syndrome

The muscles of your leg are divided into four compartments, each made of connective tissue. Compartment Syndrome is when those muscles swell up during exercise, compromising circulation and prohibiting muscular function while causing intense pain in the lower leg. 

Fractures & Stress Fractures

While fractures are clean breaks, a stress fracture is a small crack or severe bruising of a bone. Stress fractures are one of the most common overuse injuries in runners and occur when your muscles become tired and fatigued and are unable to absorb the shock from activity. Pain is the most common symptom of a fracture, along with tenderness and swelling.

Ankle Sprains

Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments of your ankle tear or get stretched too much. Sprains most often happen when you “roll” your foot during activity. Common ankle sprain symptoms are tenderness, swelling, stiffness and bruising.

Osgood-Schlatter Disease

Osgood-Schlatter Disease is a child or adolescent injury of the knee that causes knee pain, swelling, tightness and tenderness. This injury often occurs in active children during their growth spurts. When a child is active, the leg muscles pull on the tendons and this repeated action causes inflammation on the growth plate. A bump or growth on the tibial tubercle may become very noticeable.

Sever's Disease

Sever’s Disease, also known as calcaneal apophysitis, is the result of repetitive microtrauma to the growth plate of the heel in growing children and adolescents. Because children are still growing, the growth plate is considered “open”. Pain is typically in the back and bottom of the heel and the arch of the foot. During running, the Achilles tendon pulls at the growth plate. If the repetitive stress is too great from running, the area where the Achilles tendon attaches to the heel, as well as the growth plate, becomes inflamed and painful.  The typical occurrence of Sever’s disease is with children between the ages of 7 to 15 years.

I am an avid tennis player and over the last year, injured my right rotator cuff muscles (twisting on serves). Since I am a right handed player it was getting difficult on serving which I modified to offset the pain. I went to see Matt W. at Evolve PT in Sherwood and over 2 weeks (2 times/week) I have reduced the pain completely with the exercises prescribed. I would highly recommend anyone with muscular joint pain to visit. I was skeptical as my previous PT sessions at another facility did not help but actually made it worse. I cannot believe I waited so long as I could have been pain free months ago. My wife suggested I go as she had both hips replaced and the PT did help reduce her discomfort as well. I am playing tennis twice per week (1.5 hours at a session) pain free. Give them a try you will NOT be disappointed.

To whom it may concern:I was referred to Evolve Physical Therapy. I am one of those active seniors, that sometimes push myself a little to hard working out. I met Matt and he actually listened to my concerns. Matt knew immediately how to remedy my posture and lower back issues, as well as helping me protect my knee replacements. Evolve is a state of the art organization, that takes their work seriously as well as enjoying what they do. I highly recommend them .Tom Abalan

Let me start out by saying in my past I have hated physical therapy with a fiery passion. I’m a trauma survivor who has PTSD and PT has always triggered me. I’ve have had several pretty difficult injuries in my life and also have had to go to physical therapy after surgery. The injury that brought me to Evolve was an ankle sprain. Both of my parents went to Evolve and recommend them to me. I was dreading it with all my heart, and also understanding that I had to go to get better. The first thing I learned about Evolve is that they are incredibly interested in helping you recover from your injuries. I’ve worked with two physical therapist there and they both were spectacular. Matt W. Helped me work on my sprain and when I was not not healing well and my hands started hurting, he urged me to see my GP which led to finding out I had Rheumatoid Arthritis. I got my RA under control and was able to get my ankle back to a healthy state. His keen eye and willingness to listen helped me so much and helped me trust myself more. I am currently working with Melisa on my chronic shoulder and back pain. She has been incredibly helpful in helping me deal with and find ways to move with out setting off my fight or flight response and slowly but surely I’m getting better. She so clearly understands that being human is much more then just moving parts. Another awesome person at Evolve is Brittany she The patient coordinator. Sh is one of the most on point office managers I have ever seen . She goes the extra mile even when she does not have to. She deserves a shout out because she works so hard and makes dealing with insurance way easier and less triggering. She is also incredibly easy to communicate with and is always very kind. I see an incredible team working together to provide some of the BEST PT possible. The other thing I am absolutely interested in is how easy their staff makes Trauma Informed Care implementation look. It’s clearly woven into everything they do. Even if they don’t have it plastered all over their walls it’s clearly part of their practice. If anyone I know ever needs PT I will strongly recommend Evolve they are at the top of the PT world. This place has changed my life in so many ways. Thank goodness for Evolve!!!

I chose Evolve primarily because of location. I had also heard very positive reports from acquaintances. I was able to schedule my appointments in a timely fashion which I was important to me. The owner also worked with me to develop a self payment plan. Matt has been informative and encouraging. He has offered different treatment options to facilitate “getting back to normal”. I feel that I am in very capable hands and that my recovery is as important to Matt as it is to me!

I met with Matt Weissbach to work through some persistent knee pain that was not decreasing despite exercise and weight loss. After his assessment of my strength and flexibility, he gave me some exercises and stretches that have eliminated the pain. Definitely recommend.

Matt gave me a complimentary running analysis. He was super knowledgable and helped me understand how to alleviate hip and knee pain, while also increasing running speed. These guys are the real deal. I've been to a lot of PTs before and they are excellent.

This was my first experience in physical therapy, and I am so grateful I found Melisa at Evolve. She is absolutely amazing at what she does and so incredibly knowledgeable. I had a pretty bad concussion and neck strain from an ice skating fall, and Melisa listened to me, kept me focused on my goals, and helped guide me through my recovery over the span of several months. I am now almost back to my regular self, and she is helping me get back to my running goals. I’m starting to train for my next race (a feat I thought was impossible 3 months ago). I would highly recommend Evolve Physical Therapy!

I initially started seeing Melisa for a running injury to my foot. Through the course of several visits, we determined that much of what I was struggling with was nerve pain and that the source of the pain was actually a larger issue than just the running injury. My sessions with Melisa, and the at home exercises she has given me, have helped me to build strength and flexibility in a very targeted way. My nerve pain is improving and I am back to running! I am continuing to work with Melisa for further improvement and targeted development of my running form so that I can continue to do what I love without pain!

I had tears in both of my rotator cuffs. Evolve PT was amazing. In the beginning I couldn’t reach for anything without pain. Now both of my shoulders are healthy and I am back to regular activities. They were super flexible with my schedule, which made coming to physical therapy easy!

I saw Matt on an emergency basis for vestibular therapy for BPPV. Evolve was able to get me an appointment less than an hour after calling whereas the soonest I could get an appointment through my healthcare system was 2 days later. Anyone who’s ever had a BPPV episode knows that there’s no possible way to endure it for 2 days. I was so grateful Evolve was able to get me in so quickly and even more grateful that I didn’t have to explain what BPPV is to the scheduler. She knew what it is and that I had to be seen quickly. I was more than happy to pay out of pocket for the high quality care and expertise I got from Matt. I’m someone who actually wants to know all about the science of things and picked up on that quickly and obliged my curiosity. He is super skilled and very highly trained at vestibular therapy and I couldn’t feel more blessed that I found him within a 30 minute drive just through an internet search of last resort. Thanks to Matt and Evolve I can actually enjoy Thanksgiving with family!

In the two weeks I’ve been getting therapy at Evolve, I must say I’m very impressed. The office is very professionally run & Matt is terrific at listening & evaluating. My problem is complex but he is sorting through everything very carefully & has an excellent knowledge base from which he operates. The place is neat, clean & easy to access.

I had a partially torn MCL, and was scheduled for physical therapy at Evolve. The location was great, Matt was friendly and extremely knowledgeable.. He always explained in a very understandable way what the goal was, and the process we would take.After each treatment I could see progress, and for something that started as an injury - it ended up as a very beneficial experience.

Incredibly smart therapists. I had the pleasure of working with Matt Weissbach, and throughout treatment he challenged me, encouraged me, carried on great conversation to keep my mind of the strain of some of the hard work, and taught me as much as he treated me. I highly recommend Evolve Physical Therapy!!!

I've been dealing with neck and shoulder issues for over 4 years, and have seen so many different physical therapists, and Matt at Evolve is one of the best to ever do it. He is so well-versed in treatments and techniques. Very knowledgeable. But most importantly, he makes therapy fun. Matt, and the entire staff, are so engaging and kind. I've had to cancel appointments last minute because of headaches that've come up, and they are always so understanding. They truly just want what is best for the patient. You can feel the care and concern every time you walk into their office.

Fabulous! This made all the difference. I got rid of dizziness, shoulder pain, leg pain, regained strength, am able to move and do normal activities, and so much more. After major surgery, chemotherapy, and life I was weak, had dizziness, and was just a big mess. I can't thank Matt Whitaker and Evolve enough.

I would give Evolve Physical Therapy and Matt Weissbach 10 stars if I could. He is truly the best. I have had several occasions to use Matt over years for my physical therapy needs. He was so thoughtful and thorough in assessing what my problem was and what was needed to correct the issues. He is very professional and his knowledge of the best treatment options is incredible. His staff is extremely helpful with setting up appointments. Matt has a very practical approach to the treatment process. What was most impressive was his attention to outlining the details of the home exercise program he felt was necessary. He made sure I had all the information to do the exercises at home. He was very good at giving me feed back on how I was progressing. He has such great feel for knowing when to push forward harder and when to back off of the rehab process. I am in the medical field myself. I can honestly say that there is not a better physical therapist that I have ever dealt with then Matt. I highly recommend him without reservation.

Matt Whitaker is my back, pain problem solver! I’ve gone to Matt two different times a couple years apart for severe back issues - pain that was moving all over and even impairing my ability to walk! It was horrible... I started out with my orthopedic surgeon giving me the option of trying PT (physical therapy) or looking at some more drastic measures... I’m not a fan of surgery, or pills, and running is a key part of my life so off to PT I went... Matt was recommended by my orthopedic surgeon and I understand why! Matt is always focused on the source of the pain, not only in my body but how it developed. He addresses the issues systematiclly and ensures my understanding as we go. Matt focuses on progress at the clinic and ensuring it is maintainable once I leave. We’ve had many conversations to figure out behavior, to posture, that lends to my issue and how to change.Couple things about the clinic: it’s super clean, bathrooms are big and stocked with all sorts of items to help you get back in order after PT. They have a large open floor with machines, etc., but my favorite aspects of the clinic are - Private rooms! Yes, a little privacy when you’re talking and they’re working on you! I’ve been to some clinics where the receptionist, waiting room and physical therapist are working with their patients all in the same space (so awkward and embarrassing). Evolve has an online tool that tracks all the exercises, personal comments for you and includes videos so you know exactly how to perform stretches and exercises!Evolve Physical Therapy is top notch. I live in West Sylvan and it’s well worth the drive to Sherwood. I recommend Evolve Physical Therapy anyone who needs a PT!Thank you Matt for keeping me on the trail! 🙂 You’re the best!!

I can't say enough great things about Evolve Physical therapy therapists and staff!! I was referred to Evolve by my physician who recommended Matt and Matt because of their expertise in dealing with neck/cervical spine physical therapy. I was extremely impressed with the knowledge and expert care I received at Evolve! I have recommended both Matt's to many of my friends to address a variety of pain, postural strength training and post surgery physical therapy needs. Matt W. provide me physical therapy exercises that were constantly tailored and customized to meet my therapy goals and work within my life/schedule. They use an app/online program through your email that links to videos of your specific workout that is updated after every appt based on your progress and feedback. The online individualized videos provide great visual cues and reminders on your homework and is super easy to follow and use. Evolve worked hard to not just address my active pain symptoms and building strength to correct those but took it to the next level of looking holistically at all aspects of my daily life to find all components that we needed to address in order to prevent future re-occurrences. Matt W. helped me to really analyze my home and work environments for contributing factors and then problem solved realistic solutions. Evolve PT is not a place that wants you to keep coming back to spend your money, they work hard to truly get you better and out of there! Thanks guys!!

Oct 15 2019This post is long overdue. Last November 14, 2018–I was trying to hang a plant in our stairwell and I lost my balance and fell 4 feet on the wood stairs. I ended up with eight breaks in my ribs. Three ribs-had two breaks each. I also had three breaks in my right scapula.The healing was long and painful. In January the doctor at OHSU said I needed to go to physical therapy. I got online and started looking at clinics close to our hm in Newberg. I’ve had physical therapy 3-4 times before. I wanted to find a physical therapist that could really help me since this was the second injury to the same shoulder. I chose Evolve because I liked what it said on the website about fit for life and getting fit in a natural way. I went to their facilities in Sherwood. I met Matt Whitaker and started getting treatments twice a week thru March. Not only was he wonderful to work with-but he looked at everything that affected me including the reason I fell. He looked at the whole picture instead of using “the bandaid effect” to get me healthy and strong again. The exercises he gave me —I still do a year later. I am currently swimming laps and I am up to 8 lbs with my arm free weights. I am not a gym rat or fanatical about working out.I am a 66 year old woman with a lot of life ahead of me. I want to enjoy it as pain free as possible. I feel that because of Matt’s diligence, knowledge, and care for my overall well being—I am in the amazing shape that I am now- not quite a year since my accident! I am more mobile and pain free with my shoulder than I was BEFORE my accident!Not a day goes by that I don’t think of proper posture- proper exercise-and just healthy living. Matt had so much to do with that. I will NEVER go to another physical therapist!!Do yourself a favor and go see the folks at Evolve. Everyone that I met there was wonderful— including the other therapists and the lovely young woman that checks you in. Stay healthy and fit— trust me— they can help!Respectfully and Prost,Linda C.

One month out from surgery on my shoulder, my physical therapy with a different therapist (at a different business) was failing me badly. Instead of making healing progress, my shoulder was retreating into a protective state. My doctor's office recommended finding a new therapist and, on the recommendation of a friend who had used Evolve, I quickly made the switch.I was set up with Melisa and almost immediately started seeing progress. She took the time to understand the entire history of my injury, as well as the problems and concerns arising from my previous therapy on the shoulder, then crafted a plan to gradually work me back to health. It was a long process to full recovery, but Melisa pushed me just hard enough without pushing so hard that I regressed. She gave me the tools to work on shoulder strength and stability outside of the Evolve offices, which aided in my recovery and led to a great outcome.I'm so thankful I made the switch to Evolve and I could not be more thankful for the help I received. Everyone in the office is friendly and they take the time to know their patients. I would highly recommend Evolve for anyone who is recovering from surgery or just needs a little help achieving their full movement potential.

Evolve Physical Therapy is great! I received physical therapy from Matt Whitaker for chronic problem with my feet. I had been having progressively more painful foot problems for about 5 years and had seen 3 podiatrists, had a surgery, countless steroid injections, different medications, and physical therapy from other places of the 5 years with very limited results. When I went to Evolve I was very discouraged and feeling very desperate. The first thing that set Matt apart from others that I had worked with for me feet is that he had scheduled enough time in my first appointment to go over all the issues i was having and everything that had been tried on me so far. He was very empathetic and also optimistic that he could find a solution that would help me. When I came back for my second visit it was clear that he had thoroughly thought through my situation and was prepared with a solid plan. I went to therapy frequently for a while and incorporated a home care plan with Matt's guidance and was eventually able to get to a point that I am mostly pain free in my feet. It has been over a year now and I am still mostly pain free! What really set Evolve apart is that they listened to me and made adjustments to my treatment all along they way. I would recommend them to anyone, especially if you haven't been able to get relief elsewhere.

I had a running assessment with Matt Weissbach today. As a physician myself, I could not have been happier with the way he broke down my running form in an analytical and informative way. He provided me with tips to improve my form and speed. I figured I'd be more conscious of what he said tonight at track practice and was not only hit my fastest mile, but also my fastest 5k speed, shaving a whole 3 minutes off of my previous time! Thank you so much! I'll definitely be back!

My experience at PTEvolve was uniformly positive. When I started I had some significant issues. Matt helped me work through them and developed a plan that helped me very significantly.The facility is clean, modern and well run. Brittany does a great job handling the scheduling.I highly recommend Evolve. I hope I don't need their services again soon, but will definitely keep them in mind if I do!

I have suffered from vertigo off and on for a number of years. It usually comes once a year and lasts up to 2 months. I was resigned to just dealing with it until I googled and found Evolve Physical Therapy. The reviews were encouraging so thought I would give it a try. I am so glad I did! In one session with Michael Whitaker my vertigo is gone! Michael is a miracle worker! I went back for a check in and he taught me how I could quickly and easily get rid of vertigo on my own should it return. Brittany in the office was also very helpful in contacting my insurance company to find out about my coverage and co-pay. I highly recommend Evolve Physical Therapy especially if you are suffering from vertigo.

Visited Matt Whitaker for neck pain, shoulder pain, and numb fingers. These where preventing me from performing normal daily activities. Over the course of a few appointments, he worked on specific areas of my neck and shoulder resulting in quick relief. I didn't realize how much I was protecting a previous injury in my shoulder but after visiting Matt, I have more movement in my neck and shoulder than have for years. I highly recommend Evolve PT. Their staff is amazing as well.

A friend of mine recommended Evolve and she was right. From Brittany who is friendly and organized to Melisa my experience has been great. Melisa has a great attitude and she is a wonderful listener.I wish I started going to Melisa sooner!
