You Are A Runner, But Is Your Doctor?

Uncategorized Sep 08, 2020

Let's face it. Distance runners are a different breed of athlete.

Seriously. Who in their right mind gets up at 4:30 AM to run 12 miles before a long day of work?
 

AMP Performance Rehab knows this, because we are runners ourselves.

The truth is, most medical professionals do not understand ANYTHING about running. They don't understand the mindset and dedication it takes to get faster and stronger. They don't understand how PR'ing your half marathon time by even 1 minute is a huge deal. And they unfortunately do NOT understand the physical demands of the the sport you love more than anything.

Why does this matter?

Because these are the people who are supposed to be best capable of helping you if you get injured. They are the ones that you are entrusting to get you back to running better than ever after a stint of rehab. They are the ones who's decisions about your health are the difference between you being a life-long runner, or having your career cut short because of a mismanaged injury that ends with surgery.

Over the next 6 weeks, AMP Performance Rehab will be putting out information to help YOU better understand common running-related injuries and ensure that the advice you are getting from medical professionals (orthopedic doctors, sports medicine doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, etc.) makes sense for YOU AS A RUNNER.
