Stamford Daily Voice—June 7, 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.
For instance, Dr. Metzl answers the following question: "I've been dealing with shin splints for weeks, any advice?"
Dr. Metzl's response is, "Start with your feet. Buy proper running shoes and try an over-the- counter orthotic. The key point is if it hurts too much to run smoothly, get it checked out so you don't run yourself into an even more problematic injury."
