MedStar Harborview Sports Medicine Hosts Free High School Cross Country Injury Assessment Clinic
Baltimore—MedStar Harborview Sports Medicine at MedStar Harbor Hospital has partnered with Running Maryland to provide a free Injury Assessment Clinic for high school cross country runners, aimed to prevent injuries and help the community run healthy.
The majority of running injuries result from a combination of strength and flexibility deficits, biomechanical problems and training errors. Many runners ignore their injury and push through the pain, resulting in high injury recurrence rates.
MedStar Harborview Sports Medicine’s free Injury Assessment Clinic is designed to help high school cross country runners find their weak spots and provide guidance to correct those spots before they cause future injury.
Coaches also are invited to visit the facility, observe the video motion analysis and try running on the Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill.

WHEN: Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012 from 4 to 6:30 p.m.
