Do you love running but a joint (or muscle) pain is preventing you from running?
Running is an amazingly fun activity! Unfortunately it’s also deceptively difficult to do.
Many of us start running because it requires minimal equipment and it doesn’t take long to feel like you worked out.
Some start running in grade school and keep running because they love the “runners high” or the way it feels to set a new personal record.
Those are just two of the hundreds of reasons I’ve heard that gets people to run and keeps them running.
Sadly, I’m normally hearing about their love of running after they were forced to stop due to an injury.
The truth is running takes a lot of strength, endurance, and technique to do it without injuring yourself. (did you just add “especially at my age” to the end of that sentence?)
Yes, 20 year olds do have youthful healing on their side; however, a 60 year old that trains smartly can give that 20 year a run for their money.
No matter your age, the factors that determine the risk of injury and the recovery from an injury are the same: Strength, flexibility and running form.
You can certainly stack the deck in your favor by adding good nutrition, staying hydrated and wearing well fitting supportive shoes.
Because running is not easy, it is very easy to develop muscle or joint pain that at first you ignore (sometimes for months) until you can’t push past the pain any longer.
Are you wondering why….
You have foot pain while you run?
Your knee hurts or swells while running?
What could be annoying your lower back while you run? (no matter the incline? )
How to stop your ITBand issue from ever coming back? (without having weekly massages? )
What do I have to do to prevent X pain from returning?
If you don’t want to stop running and/or if you don’t want to go to the Orthopedic Doctor just to be told to stop running, take this shot or worse you need surgery, then this offer is perfect for you.
Dr. Molly created this 30 min “Running Form screening” with you in mind. She has seen so many runners put off seeing a professional until there very few options left. Without question the earlier you see someone about joint (muscle) pain or stiffness while running the quicker the recovery. If you’re pushing passed an annoying or down right uncomfortable pain while you’re running we strongly suggested signing up for this screening to get you back to running without worry or limitation!
