Lucky Trails Marathon
St. Patrick’s Day means lots of green costumes running through the trails of Seabrook, Texas. The Lucky Trails Marathon takes over the trails and the event is spectacular. The chiropractors of Premier Sports Chiropractic, PLLC were able to meet runners from all over the country who traveled to our little town of Seabrook and we are so proud to have them. The individuals we encountered throughout the two-day event were all so friendly. Runners are a wonderful group of athletes to be around. Weather did play a slight factor for the runners on both days of the event. It was pretty warm when the sun peaked out from behind the clouds and before the wind picked up at about 9:30. Fortunately, the event organizers have figured out the tricks to make everyone feel comfortable and provide a top of the line event.
After the completion of the run, the Sports Chiropractors were on site this year for stretching, providing muscle work and giving injury advice. We received some great questions and it was good to hear that the runners are not just hitting the trails. They take the time to research running injuries and complications which may occur from long distance running. Educating yourself in this manner is an excellent way to prevent injuries and keep them on the trails. The runners were able to ask the Sports Chiropractors about some issues they are experiencing while training or during the event. Many of the runners utilized our services and we saw everything from cramps and pulled muscles to some slightly more complicated injuries. The Sports Chiropractors utilized the Graston Technique and Kinesio-Taping on the athletes when necessary.
The Sports Chiropractor does want to say thank you to everyone who came out to help the Premier Sports Chiropractic, PLLC Sports Medicine Team. We were a great addition to the event this year and the athletes greatly appreciated our presence. Our team did a fantastic job and we look forward to working many more of these events to come. It was good to see everyone from the walkers all the way up to the first one across the finish line being treated with the same enthusiasm. We couldn’t have asked for a better event to attend, including the hospitality, the food and the green beer!
