This weekend, I was giving a lecture at a medical conference that was specific to running injuries.
During the question and answer period, one of the physicians in the audience asked a completely valid question.
She asked, “Why wouldn’t you just begin with a prescription medication if you’re 100% sure that medication had the highest probability of reducing the patient’s symptoms?”
The difference between the treatment options really lies in what is best for a runner long-term, versus what may best in the short term.
Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast we’re talking about why runners should not start running injury treatment with prescription medications.
