Are you or a friend recovering from running the Chicago Marathon this past weekend? Michigan Avenue magazine has published tips on Chicago Marathon training and recovery by our founder and clinic director Dr. Jason Jared, D.C., creator of the TRIFACTIVE Methodᵀᴹ for treating and preventing sports injuries and pain. These five important tips help runners to recover more quickly and correctly from marathons to reduce soreness and the body breakdown often associated with endurance sports.
For example, learn about the importance of dynamic stretching—as opposed to the stretch-and-hold techinque many of us grew up with—and view a full-body dynamic warm-up routine that’s great for runners. Also, learn about the benefits and proper form for foam roller stretching to lengthen fascia and break up restrictions caused by sports injuries and overly exerted muscles. Proper foam roller stretching alleviates the chronic aches and pains, reduced flexibility, and limited range of movement associated with restricted fascia.
These and other tips by Dr. J. will help set you on the road to faster, safer marathon recovery and training routines.
