ProHealth founder, Dr. Karyn Staples, PT, PhD, demonstrates proper running technique. Participants at ProHealth’s Running Injury Prevention workshop on April 25 will have an opportunity to have their running form reviewed. Call ProHealth Physical Therapy and Pilates Studio at 770-487-1931 to register.

Running can be a fantastic activity for a wide range of people. It is a stress reliever and a solid way to stay in shape. It can be done in a leisurely way or as an outlet for one’s hyper-competitive nature.

Regardless of the reason, it cannot be enjoyed at all when injuries get in the way. It can start as a minor problem, but if it is not treated and the running form is affected it can have lasting consequences.
