Off and running on Labor Day, Amity Physical Therapy once again provided free “hands on” stretching exercises for runners of all ages. Therapists from Amity PT’s three area offices were on hand at the start and finish of the race. Both warm up and cool down stretching was offered.
“Hamstrings, calves and ankles are particularly at risk as well as knee and hip joints,” commented Michael Dow MSPT and CEO/Director of the practice. “We provide pre and post race stretching techniques performed by experienced therapists, many of whom are runners and athletes themselves.”
Amity Physical Therapy is one of the most comprehensive facilities of its kind in the Greater New Haven area with offices in Woodbridge, Hamden and Branford. They offer the complimentary stretching exercises at many local road races including the Hamden, Branford, Woodbridge and New Haven annual events.
