Springing Into Action: Running Injury Prevention

Let the warmer weather signal the start of outdoor activities. Stay healthy and active without being overly injured.

Last week Agnes Makowski hosted a lecture about Running Injury Prevention. This is a safe exercise you can do throughout your lifespan. You can break records at any age. A few highlights include the training tips to bulletproof you and why physiotherapy can be a running difference maker.  There is more information on rehab medicine to inform decision making. For instance, if we move strategically, to a good rhythm we relieve pressure in our knees and joints.
