Physical Therapy is a great injury prevention tool when training for a marathon. Usually runners will see a physical therapist only after they become injured from running, (i.e., achilles tendonitis, IT band syndrome, knee pain, hip pain, shin splints). Using physical therapy while training for a marathon helps to prevent these injuries and enables the runner to stay on his/her proper training course. This helps to maximize running performance and increase a person's running career. Runners Physical Therapy consists of gait analysis with training, cross training techniques for core/hip/ankle/knee strengthening, proper stretching, hands on techniques, education regarding running route, shoewear, body compensation with full evaluation of hip/pelvic symmetry, leg length measurements, evaluation of muscle flexibility. A plan of care on a weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly PT schedule is set between the therapist and runner. Meetings occur in the home, office, gym, or at an outdoor location near running route. Running PT is a dynamic approach to improving a runner's potential while decreasing the chance of injury before a big race.
