The United Hospital System Rehabilitation Department will be presenting their sixth annual Running Symposium in Pleasant Prairie, WI, on Thursday, May 15. The sessions will be held in the Lake View Studio at the Pleasant Prairie RecPlex, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

  • Receive assessments by health care professionals who specialize in running and running technique.
  • Try the latest and best stretching and strengthening techniques.
  • Learn how to use a foam roller for soft tissue massage and mobilization.
  • Find out if the way you are running can lead to injury and if shoes make a difference.
  • Ask a Sports Medicine Physician about your running pains and injuries.

The UHS presenters will be:

  • Jonathan Main, M.D. - Question and Answer from a Sports Medicine Physician
  • Kevin Conto, PT, ATC, COMT - How do I Know if I am Running Correctly?
