We Know Running
Unlike any other sport, runners rarely go for instruction on how to run optimally to prevent injury. As kids, we all just ran; we didn’t worry about form or technique; we just ran because it felt good. As we get older and our bodies change, postural asymmetries and muscle imbalances can develop, setting us up for injury, such as Achilles tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, IT band syndrome, and hip and knee pain.
Running demands a lot from the body. Both competitive and recreational runners all experience setbacks over time. The Manual Touch minimizes time away from the sport you love and gets you back on the road with a customized plan to achieve your goals. Your customized plan will promote the integration of all body systems involved to decrease, alleviate, and prevent running-related symptoms.
What is the biggest mistake you can make if you have pain or a running-related injury?
The biggest mistake you can make is to ignore your pain, or think you can just rest and it will go away. While a short period of rest may be appropriate, ignoring the pain is often a recipe for pain to become chronic, more difficult to treat, and you may develop other issues while compensating for the original issue.
What happens when you come in to The Manual Touch?
Your therapist will use a Whole Body Approach to evaluate you and determine the root causes of your injury. Then, you’ll be prescribed a unique treatment plan using traditional and non-traditional manual therapy, exercises, and running mechanics instruction. You’ll learn how to move appropriately throughout your day and night, so as not to aggravate your condition. Our ultimate goal is to help you reclaim function, life, movement, and enjoyment of the activities you love and return to running.
