Podiatric Management for an Upcoming Run
Running can be fun with all the endorphins released, however the post run repercussions such as injuries are much dreaded. Make sure you pick up race preparation tips from a podiatrist on running and stretching strategies, as well as footwear guidelines, to prevent running injuries both pre and post run. Make this upcoming run a beautiful and enjoyable one!
