Happy National Running Day!

The following was taken from Move Forward PT. Their post does a great job of allowing patients and clients understand that important role of physical therapists in performance and rehab of running injuries. This is perfect timing because it is a great summary of some important points my previous two posts that discuss tests for runners and the myth of running and arthritis. The post and link to their webpage is below.
In celebration of National Running Day we’re highlighting the physical therapist’s role in helping runners improve his or her time, increase speed or stay fit, it’s essential to maintain correct form to prevent injury. Physical therapists can advise runners on proper form, training methods, strategies for preventing injuries, and proper shoe selection and work with them to develop a plan, tailored to their specific needs, for successful running. Physical therapists can also evaluate, diagnose and treat runners who have sustained a running-related injury.
