Runners' LoungeCast Episode 25: Active Release Techniques
This week we're going beyond talking about injuries; we're also discussing treatments for those pains, breakdowns, and setbacks.
A treatment gaining more acclaim by runners in recent times is Active Release Techniques or ART. Just ask Frayed Laces as she recounted her last-minute treatment before running Boston last month.
ART combines very specific patient-assisted stretching with provider-applied pressure. This combination is often able to permanently resolve difficult-to-treat conditions which respond minimally to stretching and massage alone.
This LoungeCast features Dr. David Krohse, a chiropractor specializing in ART. In the interview, Dr. David explains how ART rapidly and predictably works on a wide range of injuries common to runners.
Let us know what you think and what questions you have about this increasingly popular treatment for running injuries.
