"Runner's World" Guide to Injury Prevention: How to Identify Problems, Speed Healing and Run Pain-free

by Dagny Scott Barrios (Author)


The world of running - and running injury prevention - has evolved greatly in the last decade. New research on injury and recovery suggests that runners can continue to train while injured. And alternative practices such as acupuncture, chiropractic and massage are now virtually mainstream and an essential part of any runner's injury arsenal. Not only is the sport dramatically more popular, but women runners and beginners - who are a large part of the growth - have very different needs in the areas of injury and health which have not been adequately covered in previous books. This comprehensive, new manual is, quite simply, the leader in the field. Essential for any runner, it covers all runners' concerns from the most important stretches - and why you should not stretch an injured muscle - to how to incorporate cross-training to prevent and heal injury, the best strength-training exercises for runners, how to cope with the mental side of injury, the latest thinking on hydration and much, much more.
