HSS Doctor Talks Marathon Training and Injury Prevention

Stamford Daily Voice—August 2, 2016

In a recent article published by the Stamford Daily Voice, Jordan D. Metzl, MD, a primary care sports medicine physician at Hospital for Special Surgery, answers questions about marathon running and injury prevention when training for and running a marathon in a two-part series.

For example, Dr. Metzl answers the following question: "Sometimes I get a slight pain above my knee that goes away as I run. Any idea why?"

Dr. Metzl's response is, "You should try strength training. I suggest the plyometric jump squat. Try four sets of 15 repetitions every third day to build quadriceps and glute strength."
