SPARK Your Training with Prehab | Dr. Duane Scotti
Show Notes

We are so excited to be kicking off 2022 with running physical therapist Dr. Duane Scotti in the hopes of making this your best running year yet. Duane pretty much lives and breathes running. Not only is he the owner of SPARK physical therapy in Hamden, Connecticut, he’s also a certified running coach and host of the Healthy Runner podcast. In this episode we walk through his SPARK blueprint for helping runners prevent or heal from injuries without being told to stop running. And the best part is his advice helps you run fast too. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • The top 6 muscles runners need to strengthen
  • Why we need to include jump training and train on one leg
  • How to take care of our soft tissues
  • And why hiring a running coach might just be one of your wisest running investments, even more so than the latest carbon fiber shoes!

Duane is the real deal and if you like what you heard today, be sure to check out his YouTube channel where you can find all of the exercises we talked about.
