Have you been struggling with an injury for what seems like forever? Or are you worried that’s what’s going to happen? If you’re like a lot of my clients, you’ve already been to a doctor, physical therapist, massage therapist, Pilates teacher, yoga class, acupuncturist, and you’re foam rolling religiously. And still your problem lingers.
This is a really common situation, and there are good reasons for it. I’ll be offering a free webinar this Wednesday explaining why conventional treatments for running injuries often don’t work and what to do instead.
The webinar will be Wednesday, 10 May 2017, at 7:30 pm UK time, and there will be a replay available afterwards for people who can’t watch live.
I’ll discuss each of the most common running injuries — runner’s knee, IT band syndrome (or ITBS), achilles tendonitis or tendonopathy, plantar fasciitis or fasciosis, hamstring problems, quad problems, and back pain. I’ll explain the causes of each and steps you can take to truly solve them.
I’ll also cover the most common forms of treatment — ice, anti-inflammatory medication, stretching, rest, footwear-based solutions, and core stability exercise. I’ll explain what the most up-to-date medical knowledge tells us about each of these, and their effects on your injury.
And of course I’ll be taking questions, so if your injury isn’t covered or there’s something else on the topic you want to know from me, this is your chance! If you know you won’t be able to watch live you can email me your question in advance.
I originally gave this webinar a year ago and I’ve gotten requests consistently since then to offer it again, so here it is!
