As most of our clients know, we are both runners and enjoy working with athletes as a part of our business.
In February I (Jessica) had the opportunity to attend a great continuing education class titled, Effective Prevention and Treatment of Running Injuries. It was full of so much information. I learned about dynamic stretching for general physical health and in preparation for exercise and running. I learned a bit about how to utilize KT tape. I learned massage and stretching techniques for both runners and other types of athletes.
As a result of the class, I’m working on take home materials for clients for stretching, foam rolling and other self-care techniques. Feel free to ask either one of us about it.
In the meantime, I ran across this blog post that compares foam rolling and roller sticks for self-care. I thought it was nicely written, short and to the point. And these tools aren’t only for athletes!
