Running is a healthy activity: It can improve your endurance, lower your blood pressure and cholesterol, help you lose weight and improve your mood. And if you’re a regular runner you probably have also learned that it can come with a few undesirable side effects like runner’s knee, shin splints, plantar fasciitis and tendonitis. Injuries like these — as well as the repetitive motion of running — can cause fascia (fibrous connective tissue in the body) to tighten and put pressure on muscles, joints and nerves, increasing your risk of further injury. DON’T WORRY! In this workshop you’ll learn how easy it is to treat fascial tightening with simple myofascial release techniques that you can do at home. We’ll begin with an introduction to fascia and functional anatomy to understand what’s going on in your body, and then dig into the key areas that tend to flare up for runners: feet, hips, shoulders and neck.
