Congratulations to Alpine’s Angela Vap for her informative interview on our new Runner’s Clinic in yesterday’s Missoulain article, written by Betsy Cohen.
So you’ve set your sights on the Missoula Marathon or on the half-marathon this July.
You’ve started training, logging in miles and dutifully folding in cross-training opportunities into your routine that will make you stronger.
You are even trying to eat healthier and drink more water.
It’s all going great until those little pains begin to show up. There’s a nagging pain in your lower back. Your neck hurts and the outside of your knee sometimes aches.
You wonder: Is this a good idea? Should I really be pounding the pavement for hours at a time? Are these pains telling me I’m a train wreck waiting to happen?
For most of us, the mysterious process of pain brings on a world of worry, but for physical therapists, the symptoms of a person’s physical unraveling is like a doing a Sudoku.
Angela Vap loves to solve pain’s problems. As a physical therapist at Alpine Physical Therapy, she spends her workdays locating its source and figuring out ways to make it go away for good.
