Ep. 25: Avoiding Injury While Endurance Training with Erin Short, PT, DPT

In this episode, we are joined by Erin Short, PT, DPT, from RUSH Physical Therapy, to talk about how to avoid an injury while endurance training. We also discuss the role of physical therapy in helping patients both before and after an injury.

“The biggest surprise people have is that they are weaker in their core in their hips than they think. If that foundation is off, that’s when things can crumble,” explains Erin. She also highlights that athletes involved in endurance sports are very structured in their training, so she tries to approach their rehabilitation in a similar, planned approach.
