Do you have a frustrating running injury that is just ‘doing your head in?!’  

It’s not going away and you are ‘just over it’ and are at your ‘witts end’.

Is it sapping the enjoyment away from running?

All you want to do, is to be able to run pain free again?

Are you feeling unfit and frustrated?

 Dane Verwey is a ‘Running Physio’! The right choice for effective treatment for runners, is always, by runners! I understand you need to run again, it’s you, it’s your identity and that goal race/performance is only around the corner! I understand the crazy training involved when it comes to being a distance runner.

Dane Verwey is a caring physio of 11yrs, a fellow obsessed runner of 20 plus years, a 2:22 marathoner, a running coach, a running podcaster/blogger and lover of all things running. He could chat about running all day! (how does Jess put up with it?)

 

He is also the Physiotherapist of the Australian World Cross Country team

(China 2015/ Uganda 2017/ and Denmark 2019).   

On Tuesday and Thursdays, Dane practices at Run Therapy/ his own practice. Located at 2 Bolte Court, Frankston South. Open from 7am-7pm. Here he has a fully functional gym, treadmill, consult room and reformer bed. Consults are generally a generous 1hr, so that you leave fully confident of  ‘what’s wrong’, ‘what to do’ and ‘how long the running injury will take to improve.'

Dane also practices three days a week at the Southern Suburbs Physiotherapy Centre on 131 Lower Dandenong Rd Parkdale 3195 Victoria Australia. He works here on Mondays (8am-3pm), Wednesdays (11.45am-8pm), Fridays (12am-8pm) and every forth Saturday (8am-1pm).

Telehealth:

Otherwise, for injured runners around the world that can’t get to either of these practices in person, Dane also does Telehealth consultations on Tuesdays and Thursdays (under the business name RunTherapy).  If interested, let us know at: Run.live.grow@gmail.com.

Dane is currently successfully treating several runners at the moment across Australia and internationally through Telehealth.

What is Telehealth?

  • Telehealth is online physiotherapy.

  • It’s the future of healthcare.

  • In this instance it allows runners who don’t have access to a running specific physiotherapist to have access to one no matter where they live in the world.

 

Inappropriate referrals where hands on management is preferable or medical investigation is required will be told immediately. Dane will only work with patients he believes he will be able to help.

Runners that succeed with telehealth are just like those that succeed in the normal clinical setting, they are the patients that listen to education and comply with their exercises. These patient’s positively change their body.

Through thorough screening, questioning, acquiring necessary imaging and a video conference call a preliminary diagnosis can be made. From here patient’s will be educated on why they are still not better, what they need to do, how long the injury should take, what to still avoid, what cross training or running they can still do (if appropriate- Dane wants runners running), how to settle pain and promote healing and what to do exercise and rehabilitation wise. This will all be done personally with Dane weekly through PhysiApp.

Further online consultations are more often than not required to confirm diagnosis, monitor progress, fine tune exercise technique and ensure compliance.

For pricing and/or further questions about whether telehealth is a good fit for you, please contact us at: run.live.grow@gmail.com.

Anyway, here’s to fun pain free running!
