For New York City being known as place where thing happen, it sure seems like I’m missing out on all the good stuff! Anyway, this is from The Running Front, Sir Isaac’s very own blog!
Running-injury prevention leaders from around the globe are gathering in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, for a three-day conference to discuss best evidence and best practices to prevent and treat running injuries. As part of the gathering, the group will meet the local community and share stories, experience and knowledge.
Guest panelists include leading clinicians, researchers, teachers, writers, athletes and footwear experts from around the globe:
Dr. Craig Richards
Jay Dicharry, PT
Dr. Peter Larson
Blaise Dubois PT/Sean Cannon, PT
Ian Adamson, MS Sports Med/BS Biomechanical Engineering
Dr. Daniel Kulund, USAF
Dr. Mark Cucuzzella,
Speakers will share their most important discoveries and then allow questions and conversation with the audience.
“This is an amazing privilege to have all of these leaders in one room together willing to share and converse with the public,” says Mark Cucuzzella, MD. Over 60 percent of runners are injured every year. If the CDC were to evaluate this data they would shut down running events. Insurance companies now are reevaluating the advice to get fit if it involves running and the subsequent injuries and costs of expensive imaging studies and treatments. We need to develop entirely new approaches to running injuries and staying healthy for life”
The event is free to the public and geared toward walkers and runners of all abilities.
Free to the public. Coffee and dessert will be provided. Cash bar.
