About Dr. Tim Richardt:
I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy and Owner of Richardt Performance and Rehabilitation, a Denver-based company offering in-person and remote rehab and training services to a wide variety of clientele, especially folks that like to do badass stuff in the mountains, like backcountry skiing, technical climbing, and mountaineering.
My journey centers around the tenuous relationship with middle-distance running throughout my high school, college, and young adulthood. The sport of track was something I had some natural talent in, and enjoyed.
However, I could never handle as much mileage or training intensity as my teammates, and failed to string together the consecutive years of training necessary to truly excel.
The “why” of my predisposition to injury led me into my career as a physical therapist. This same “why” continues to drive me today, as I attempt to answer the question of “why do I hurt”, only in the larger context of all of my clientele- not just myself, and not just runners.
