Joe is a Minnesota native who got his start in orthopedics and sports medicine coaching high school cross country and track and field. With a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Joe worked as an analytical chemist for five years while coaching. Hoping to help his athletes deal with injury, he transitioned to a career in physical therapy, graduating with a Clinical Doctorate degree from Wisconsin-­La Crosse in 2009.

Since 2009 Joe has served the community, treating a wide scope of conditions — from headaches to toe pain, and everything in­-between — with patients as young as seven and as mature as ninety­-three. While he enjoys helping a wide variety of people and predicaments, Joe specializes in running injury treatment and prevention — including multi­-dimensional running stride analysis — fulfilling his initial inspiration for medical practice!

For the past decade, Joe has refined my clinical practice with comprehensive, hands-on manual therapy interventions, including spinal and joint mobilization and manipulation, visceral (organ and fascial) mobilization, and advanced cranial and spinal treatment techniques.

Joe has professional training under the following disciplines:

  • Barral Institute
  • Institute of Physical Art ­
  • McKenzie Institute
  • Neuro­Orthopedic Institute
  • North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy

Joe recently completed a year-long in-residence Fellowship training under Brent Yamashita, and Gregg Johnson, Founder of the Institute of Physical Art, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 2022.

His treatment style utilizes a scientific, systems-based analytical approach, evaluating and treating the whole person, not just the painful area. Utilizing skilled manual therapy - including joint mobilization and manipulation, and proprioceptive neuro­muscular facilitation (PNF) techniques ­targeted strength and mobility interventions, and movement education to provide each client three-­dimensional care.

Running Analysis & Stride Coaching

Joe Uhan

Joe Uhan

Joe has been a coach since 2002, working with athletes of all ages, from high school to post-collegiate runners, including professional athletes. In addition to one-­on-­one coaching, Joe has been a medical volunteer at prominent national and international competitions, including the USA Track & Field National Champions, the Olympic Track & Field Trials, and the Western States Endurance Run.

Since 2011, Joe has offered remote video running analysis & stride coaching to long­-distance clientele. Video analysis — followed by exercises, drils and cueing: all customized to the individual — has proven to be extremely effective in helping runners improve technique, decrease aches and pains, and improve running performance and goal achievement.

Personally, Joe has been a runner since 1994, competed at the high school and Division ­III collegiate level, and post­-collegiately. He took to the roads out of college, running distances from 1500m to the marathon, notching his personal best of 2:31 at the Eugene Marathon in 2010.

Joe ran his first ultramarathon at Autumn Leaves 50 Mile in October 2010, was 4th place at the 2015 USATF 100K Trail Championships (and 3rd in 2012), second at the 2014 Waldo 100K, and finished M9 at the 2012 Western States 100. His time of 16:13:14 is currently ranks him as the 28th fastest runner to ever finish Western States in the 43-year history of the event.

After reviewing video clips of me, Joe delivered an extensive and clear report containing exercises chosen to help me feel the targeted form changes. Joe responded quickly to any new running footage I posted to ensure I stayed on course and kept improving. Whether your mechanics require an overhaul like mine or just a tune-up, Joe’s expertise and responsiveness will make him an effective partner in the process and I can’t recommend him enough.
