Healthcare Partnership • About Us • Run4It
When we set about establishing the core values upon which Run 4 It was to be founded, we saw forming synergistic partnerships with like-minded practitioners as being at its heart. We initially worked in tandem with podiatrists and massage therapists by enlisting them to help train and educate us and our staff. As soon as the opportunity arose, they started working in our shops with our customers and still today our staff are trained by a qualified sports therapist. In our Aberdeen and Glasgow City shops we have dedicated treatment rooms used by qualified sports therapists and podiatrists. In our Edinburgh shop we have set times where therapists come and work on the shop floor as part of an initial consultation.
We are always trying to innovate and progress in this area. We feel that with our current partners, we are establishing a great service for our customers and staff alike.

Anyone can sustain a sports injury whether they are an elite professional, the recreational athlete or just the active individual going about their daily routine. The importance of gaining the most appropriate treatment and rehabilitation cannot be underestimated, thus ensuring a speedy return to sport and daily life.
