While running can help you destress after a long day, it can also place stress on your body. This Thursday at 6 p.m., both seasoned and amateur runners will have the opportunity to learn how to avoid injuries as a chiropractor gives his advice and takes your questions.
Dr. Tim Maggs, a specialist in Sports Biomechanics, will present a hands-on injury prevention seminar in The Record’s Community Media Lab that will focus on how to prevent and care for all types of running injuries, figuring out “good” vs. “bad” pain and the importance of stretching.
Maggs has been a Sports Chiropractor for 35 years, is a national lecturer on fitness and conditioning, worked in the New York Giants (professional football) strength department, was the founder and director of the Team Stick Kenyan Running Program, gives 25 seminars a year to doctors on the importance of structural biomechanics, and has completed 16 marathons.
In addition, he has developed the: Structural Management Program, Structural Fingerprint Exam, and the Maggs Muscle Management Program.
As The Running Dr., Dr. Maggs has contributed to: New England Runner, Florida Running & Triathlon, Chiropractic Economics, Chiropractic Products, Pace Setter and American Chiropractor magazines; and a frequent contributor to many other running publications.
Maggs is heavily involved in the Training Challenge for the Freihofer’s Run for Women and frequents their Saturday training sessions for consultation with participants.
The Record's Community Media Lab is located at 501 Broadway, Troy. Free parking will be available in The Record's parking lot, or in the parking garage across the street.
