Well done to everyone who raced this past weekend at the Perth Trail Series: Summer Series - Snakes 'n' Ladders. It was a tough course, but most competitors completed to the course unscathed and in good time. Rowney Chiropractic was there providing free treatment at the event to all competitors and volunteer staff.
Dr Adam Rowney (Chiropractor & Sports Scientist) would like to remind everyone who is interested in participating in these events about the importance or adequate conditioning, the importance of proper hydration (especially if the race is on a hot day), and would recommend everyone competing in trail running events perform some basic "pre-hab" ankle stability exercises to reduce your risk of ankle sprains on the loose, steep terrain.
Once again well done to all the competitors and volunteers who made it a great event!
See you on the trails!
Dr Adam Rowney -
