Running Injury Prevention

Dr. Smith has even written a running injury prevention book, “Run Healthy Run Strong”, providing advice on how to run better, stronger, and with less chance of injury ─ along with easy stretches and exercises ─ to runners unable to come into his office for a visit. He also created an iPhone Running App, Stretch & Run which is available in the iTunes store.
We strongly believe in the value of an active lifestyle and are dedicated to helping our patients learn running injury prevention techniques, to make exercise both enjoyable and effective.
