This episode is brought to you by Wellness In Motion, the clinic in Boston that I’ve been going to for chiropractic and sports massage for the last few years.

Normally an in person experience, they closed in mid march to help promote social distancing.

While they aren’t able to treat patients in a traditional sense, they have pivoted so that they can continue to help all of us by offering complimentary 30 minute telehealth consults to not only their current clients but anyone who wants or needs advice regarding an injury or about maintenance in general. Yes, that’s anyone, nationwide, at no cost.

You’ll be able to connect with a trained practitioner, get prehab or rehab exercises and self-treatment options so that you can continue to run strong. Head to wellnessinmotionboston.com and let them know I sent you!
