High caliber competition comes to Colorado in February when Boulder hosts the 2014 USATF National Cross Country Championships. Fleet Feet is hosting a discussion and Q&A with four cross country specialists to discuss the sport and the upcoming National XC Championships.
This talk is geared toward adult runners of all abilities who want to learn about common overuse injuries of the knee. Participants will learn how to minimize their risk in getting an overuse injury of the knee. Physical therapy exercises will be reviewed to address each injury discussed.
Knee injuries are some of the most common among athletes who participate in sports like skiing, running, soccer, and football. There’s also a higher incidence of knee injuries and chronic knee problems among women, whose body design makes them more vulnerable than men to the condition. Even if you haven’t experienced knee pain, you probably know someone who has.
Fleet Feet Boulder puts on a number of clinics, group runs, and classes and these are a great benefit to the community. When I saw on their email blast that Josh Shadle, owner of Tri Massage, was putting on a free Muscle Restoration Therapy clinic, I quickly RSVP’d.
Therapist Josh Shadle will lead a short talk at Fleet Feet Boulder and offer demos about how muscle restoration can ease pain and aid in recovery. By getting your muscles to function properly, you can eliminate and prevent muscle pain and joint instability.
