Ask any runner about their injuries – current and previous. It is unbearable for most runners to sit out, so these days, with many of us out of work, or transitioning to working from home, many of us are upping the intensity, switching up routines, or taking to trail running – this, consequently increases our likelihood of injury, but ironically, so many physical therapists, sports chiropractors and personal trainers on hiatus from social settings; now, it’s more important than ever for athletes to take precautions against sports injuries.
We’ve taped too many runners at marathons, triathlons and ultras to deny a runner’s need to RUN. If you love or treat a runner, you know they’ll keep running on their stress fractures, sprained ankles, shin splints, crippling Achilles, MCL/ACL or IT-Band issues, which can lead to gait dysfunctions or even more serious irreversible conditions… So physical therapy, mobility work and solid stretching routines are crucial in keeping a runner’s body in fighting shape for the long term.
Right now, mobility and sports rehabilitation is more important than ever, in order to keep our momentum going when we need it most. Take a tip from sports chiropractor Dr. Jon Mulholland.
