Runners are repetitive motion athletes and throughout doing repetitive motions at work, home, or for fun, proper biomechanics are necessary to help prevent injuries. No one is perfect and it is rare to have perfect form all the time. Fun activities such as running put unneeded stress on certain areas of your body that can create what chiropractors refer to as subluxations, or joints that have an improper way of moving. As runners, you want to make sure that all of your joints are moving correctly so that the repetitive motions that we do aren't causing any unneeded stresses, wears or tears on our joints like our knees and low backs!
