Free Injury Prevention Workshop for Runners, Cyclists, Triathletes

Attention triathletes, runners and cyclists: Local experts on sports injuries and sports performance are offering an injury prevention workshop specifically designed for your sports in Boca Raton on Sept. 26.

And it’s free!

The three-hour event is from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at XPE Sports (1580 NW 1st Court, Boca Raton.)

Health-Fit Chiropractic and Sports Medicine, of Boca Raton and Miami, is presenting the workshop, which includes topics near and dear to athletes who don’t want to be sidelined by injury. Among those topics are: how over-use injuries occur in endurance athletes, dispelling misconceptions that cause issues for runners, pre-activity warm-up, selective functional movement assessment, Kinesio Taping dos-and-don’ts, self-managing aches and pains, when to see a doctor for an injury and more.

Trainer Tony Villani, of XPE Sports, will demonstrate his patent-pending SHREDmill and how it increases athletic performance. Villani trains NFL, professional tennis and other elite athletes.

“This workshop is the perfect setting for any runner, triathlete or cyclist looking to gain the knowledge of how over-use Injuries occur in their sport, and how to self-manage them,” Health-Fit Chiropractic and Sports Medicine CEO Dr. Kevin Christie said. “The key is to understand how these injuries occur, then develop a seamless prevention strategy to reduce the risk of injuries. Not only will you limit the chance of injury, you will also increase your performance because a healthy body firing on all cylinders will perform better.”

Christie, a chiropractor and certified strength and conditioning coach, says he and his partners see over-use injuries in their clinic all the time, and one of the most common causes is athletes’ lack of physical self-management.

“The main injuries we see are knee pain, plantar fasciitis, back pain and other lower leg injuries,” he said. “Many of these can be prevented.”
