Courtney Alama is a physical therapist specializing in the endurance athlete. She completed her doctorate in Physical Therapy at Belmont University after earning a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Minnesota.
In addition to her education in the classroom, Courtney gained a wealth of experience and understanding through her career in collegiate running. She competed in Cross Country and Track and field for both Belmont and the University of Minnesota. Courtney’s firsthand experience and love for running resulted in her taking a special interest in running and endurance rehab. She stays up to date on the latest research and evidence based treatment.
Courtney moved to Nashville in 2018 for graduate school, but she grew up on a farm in the small town of Annandale, Minnesota. She is the youngest of 5 siblings, and began running as a kid with all her sisters. She hasn't stopped running since, and you can even find her around town with her running club on Thursday nights. In her free time Courtney enjoys visiting her family and running in Minnesota, being outdoors, traveling and going to concerts.
Dealing with multiple injuries and knee surgeries in childhood and adulthood I was nervous about recovery and returning to sports. However, working with Courtney has made a world of difference. Courtney is passionate about what she does and incredibly knowledgeable! She has helped me reach my goals as an athlete and instilled confidence in my own healing process. I would recommend her to anyone.
