When you're a runner, injuries can happen. You might be injured now (we feel your pain, physically and mentally!) or you may have been injured in the past and know all too well what it's like to be sidelined for awhile. In this episode from the archives, Heather talks with Suttons Bay runner Krista Scott, a physical therapist, and Dena Johnson, a certified athletic trainer, about common runner injuries -- why they happen and what we can do to treat them. Dena, who was training for her first Boston Marathon
at the time of this recording, has 20 years experience in the outpatient physical therapy setting. She is the clinic director at ATI Physical Therapy
Traverse City West and the Running Institute. Krista, a former competitive swimmer and three-time Boston Marathon finisher
, is a physical therapist and former clinic director for ATI Physical Therapy
in Suttons Bay. All three women talk about different aches and pains they've dealt with throughout their running journeys, and also what has helped them get back out on the roads and trails. ATI Physical Therapy
is a nationwide physical therapy business with locations throughout Michigan.
