Almost every runner develops joint pains, pulled muscles or perhaps even fractures. Motivated by his own experience, Dicharry (SPEED Clinic and Motion Analysis Lab) brings together information from clinical care, biomechanical analysis, and the experience of coaches to provide some answers as to why this happens and how injuries can be prevented. The final chapter discusses corrective exercises using fun extras such as LAX balls, IT bands, and the large Swiss balls. Color photographs and figures support the text and four appendixes provide definitions of terms such as gait velocity and stride time, as well as useful references. No index is provided.
