Sport is good for your health, that much is clear to everyone. Along with the growing trend of pursuing a healthy lifestyle, the desire to compete among amateur sportsmen and women is also on the increase. One of the fastest growing in recent years is running, mainly because it is a relatively low-budget sport that can be practised anywhere and independently.
Running-related sporting events have been growing in number, importance, participants, distances, and variants. Just a few days ago, for example, we told you about the celebration last weekend of one of the toughest national events, the 101 km Ronda, in which more than 6,700 athletes completed their races in time and for which we at Corporis worked during the previous weeks with some of the participants.
The same is true of another legendary event to be held this coming weekend in Marbella: the IRONMAN 70.3, organised by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), which combines swimming (1.9 km), cycling (90 km) and running (21.1 km) in the same circuit, making a total distance of 70.3 miles and which will have qualifying places for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship 2022 to be held in October in the desert of St. George, Utah (USA).
Marbella once again presents itself as a magical enclave for high-level sport and it is something we can only be proud of.
This increasingly professionalised sport is leading many individuals to enter a world that, until now, they had only contemplated as amateurs. But preparing for demanding events such as the 101 km or the Ironman requires not only a very careful training plan but also the monitoring of many other factors. For this reason, professionals surround themselves with multidisciplinary teams of nutritionists, doctors, osteopaths, and physiotherapists, with whom they draw up their work plans in order to arrive at the events in optimal conditions to obtain the best results and prevent injuries.
At Corporis, our osteopaths and physiotherapists are highly specialised in the treatment of both amateur and top-level sportsmen and women.
With the support of ultrasound diagnosis and the most advanced Invasive Physiotherapy Techniques, we can treat and prevent all types of injuries with the best results and significantly shortening recovery times. We accompany our athletes in their preparation schedule with strategic sessions and in post-competition recovery.
Behind a good athlete there must always be a good team that accompanies, advises and cares for them with the utmost professionalism. And that is exactly what we at CORPORIS do with our patients.
