This past week I have had several individuals ask me about injuries, including myself.
As an old athletic trainer, I would fall back on the standard ‘RICE’ formula. This stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. This seemed to work for both sprains and strains to start letting the healing process begin.
I am not sure if all of these injuries have been the result of the marathon season winding down, and all of those long runs are finally catching up. The muscles, tendons and joints are just plain tired and need a time to recover.
