Review

The biggest challenge running coaches encounter isdiscovering the balance between maximizing workload while holding off injuries.Jay Dicharry presents years of knowledge and useful practical information in aformat that's understandable. I am certain Anatomyfor Runners is spot on because Jay has helped several of my athletes bothremain healthy as well as get back to championship form. --Jason Vigilante

This is an excellent reference for individuals who want to gain a better understanding of the biomechanics of running and how to address injuries and injury prevention. As a personal trainer, this is a reference I will go to again and again for myself and my clients.

The pages of "Anatomy for Runners" hold fantastic information on the hows and whys of both overcoming running injuries and increasing performance. Physical therapist and coach Jay Dicharry exposes the root causes of injury: we don't know how to stabilize our spine, hips, knees and feet appropriately. The book covers everything from anatomy to gait mechanics to corrective exercises to footwear; it even includes a self-assessment process to determine whether you're mobile and stable enough to run.

Dicharry writes from the perspective of a formerly often-injured runner so fellow runners will identify with his point of view. His words will give hope to anyone with arthritis, worn cartilage, torn menisci or other injuries that have led physicians to advise: stop running. Kudos to the author for presenting rather technical information in a fun, easy-to-read way.

Highly recommended. What impresses me most is JD's ability to take readers through a personalized self assessment and from that allow the reader to generate an individualized treatment program. All without gait analysis, or treadmill.

I think of JD's book more as "anatomy of running". While runners run .. most of us don't do it well. Indeed running is a skill that can be deconstructed, analysed, refined, and practised, practised and practised.

Great book, Lots of info. First part of the book is not an easy read, very technical. But it makes everything make sense later.

This is a MUST have for anyone who runs on a regular basis.
