Free Pre- and Post-Race Stretching Events

Race season is back again and we couldn’t be happier about it!

The snow has melted, the trees are beginning to grow their leaves, and the sun is warming up the pavement.

As Dr. Tilyr and I prepare for all of the 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, and triathlons where we will be volunteering this summer, many men and women in the area are beginning to prepare for them, too. For many, it’s a great time to begin chiropractic care to help you move well and feel strong as you’re training.

The organizations that set the races up are incredible; especially RaceVermont, Essex Junction Recreation and Parks, Essex CHIPS, and the Howard Center. They raise hundreds of dollars for important causes. We love being a part of it.

We offer free pre- and post-race stretching to all participants of each race. And let me tell you, most people take advantage of our offer!

Last year, we met many adults that could have benefitted greatly by seeing a chiropractor before showing up to the race. We often heard, “My body is just not moving the way it used to!

The repetitive nature of running and biking can cause certain imbalances in your body. Many athletes find themselves dealing with aches and pains in their back, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, or feet.

By offering gentle stretching before or after the race, we hope to help athletes feel better.

If you see our tent at a race this summer, stop by to say hello and maybe even take advantage of our free offer!
