More than half of all runners in the U.S. are sidelined at least once a year because of injury. Many others run through the pain that starts to surface as they age-pain that results from years of bad posture, joint and muscle stiffness, poor running mechanics, and wearing the wrong shoes.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Running Injury-Free provides readers with a holistic approach to preventing injuries and getting rid of the nagging pains that most runners experience at some point. In it, readers learn how to-

Increase the flexibility of joints and muscles used in running Achieve adequate muscle strength without over-developing muscles Find the right type of running shoes based on running mechanics, weight, and mileage, and frequency Break bad running habits that form naturally over time Tailor biomechanics to individual running conditions Treat specific injuries if they occur and minimize recovery time
