Why Running Medicine is Important & How Creating a Supportive Work Culture Helps
In their first episode, Dr. Kate and Dr. Kacy discuss the importance of treating endurance athletes holistically. They stress the importance of listening to their athletes needs, watching them run and truly understanding them as a person, not just an athlete. Dr Kate and Dr. Kacy explain what running medicine is, the origin of Precision Performance and Physical therapy, and building a culture of care and fun in the workplace.
