The Injured Runner- A Balanced Solution
The Injured Runner – A Balanced Solution is based on leading edge medical research conducted at Stanford University, the Joyner Sports Medicine Center in Lexington, Kentucky, the University of Wisconsin, the Umea University in Sweden, and Queensland University in Australia. These institutions have done extensive research on iliotibial band friction syndrome, knee pain, hamstring strains, Achilles tendonitis, and lower back pain.
MY COMMENT: I'm always on the lookout for ideas on exercises to complement a well-rounded running program. This reasonably priced DVD looks to me like a well-researched approach to treatment and prevention of running injuries.
Note: The Injured Runner- A Balanced Solution website has some good information.
