Everything You Need to Know About Injuries: Jeremy Stoker
Mar 18th, 2015 by runnersconnect at 12:01 am

It may not come as a surprise, but injury related topics are our most popular articles on Runners Connect. No-one wants an injury, and it is the most frustrating part of being a runner, especially as a lot of non-runners roll their eyes at us. But wouldn’t it be nice to talk to a professional who did not think runners were crazy, and could understand the treatment and scientific side of injuries as well as the drive and passion we have for our sport?

That is exactly what you will find from todays podcast. My guest today has his doctorate in Physical Therapy, and specializes in running injuries. All runners need to listen to this podcast, and I am sure most of you will be nodding your head as we go through this interview.
