Advance your treatment options for runners with effective prehab techniques that reduce injuries and keep runners doing what they love. Prehab is more than just stretching and strengthening. With the right combination of mobility, stability, and other important “movement habits”, you’ll gain effective skills that you can implement in clinic right away. Apply the strategies to common injuries such as runner’s knee, ITB syndrome, Achille’s tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, and more.
