CLYDE, N.C. (Aug. 8, 2013) - Mission Health today announced the second clinic in its Clyde-based sports medicine lecture series. A certified running technique specialist, USA Track & Field Coach and Bike Fit Red Level Pro will present Pose Running Method from 6:30 until 8 P.M (Thursday) Aug. 22 at the Mission Outpatient Care Center, located next to Mountain Eye Associates, at 490 Hospital Drive in Clyde, N.C.


During the free clinic, participants will have the opportunity to learn about running biomechanics as well as flexibility exercises useful in any sport or daily living. All attendees will be entered to win a free running analysis.


“Western North Carolina has many outdoor enthusiasts, including avid runners,” said Thomas Minton, PT, MDT, CRTS, with Mission Sports Medicine.  “My hope is our pose running clinic will enhance understanding of both technique and forms used to improve performance and prevent injury,” said Minton.


The Aug. 22 lecture is a continuation of a two-part sports medicine lecture series. In July, Minton presented Bike Fit, a clinic that included basic and advanced techniques to optimize performance, comfort, and aerodynamics as well as prevent injury.

The lecture’s venue –the Mission Outpatient Care Center - is located in the heart of Haywood County and provides an unsurpassed quality of specialty and primary care, including family medicine, sports medicine, orthopedics, spine & neurosurgery, imaging services, laboratory services and wound care.

Seating is limited and interested parties are highly encouraged to pre-register by calling Mission Sports Medicine at 828-213-0850.
