Winter Training Launch and Injury Prevention Clinic

  • Elite Physical Therapy 5701 North 26th Street Tacoma, WA, 98407 United States (map)

Injury will put a serious damper in your run training. Though we can’t promise injuries won’t happen, there are a few simple things you can do to prevent them. We’ll be covering the basics on how to manage gnawing aches, understanding when warning pains need professional attention, and moves to prevent injury in the first place. Included in this clinic is:

  • a gait analysis with tips from a physical therapist on running injury free.

  • pre and post run stretches you can do to prevent plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinitis, and IT band syndrome.

  • Time to ask a local physical therapist about existing concerns.

  • Tips on keeping your shoes in tip-top shape, feet blister free, and knowing when to replace your shoes.
