Here in the Midwest, winter can be a challenging time to keep up with your running fitness not only because of the weather but many people are not on a formal training plan at this time.  Thus, the winter is the perfect time to do “prehab”, an exercise program to improve your running and prevent injury.  Studies show that strength training can reduce sports injuries to less than a third and overuse injuries by almost 50%. [1]

Call today to schedule one of the following holiday specials to help guide you in your “prehab” program.  If you are currently injured and unable to run then these programs will then provide you with information to take back to your MD or chiropractor in order to get a prescription to come in for physical therapy if appropriate.
