Here’s an update from one of our running specialists at Alpine, Matt Schweitzer, DPT, OCS, CSCS.
A couple weeks back, a group of runners gathered at Alpine Physical Therapy’s North location (by Jonnny Carino’s) for a beautiful morning run. When the runners finished their training run, a group of five of Alpine’s physical therapists and one athletic trainer were stationed by to help the runners prepare for the upcoming Missoula Marathon.
The runners’ had their flexibility tested, core strength measured, and were tested using our new force plates. Runners learned new stretches, received exercises to increase core strength, and got to see if there was an imbalance with side to side stance on the force plates.
This was a super fun event, and everybody walked away with some things to work on with their training for the upcoming Missoula Marathon!
