Fauquier Health Therapists Support Our Community

Bruce Edwards runs 10K to raise money for Fauquier Free Clinic.

Bruce Edwards and Kristen Pierce, two of our physical therapists, participated in the 2010 Pacemakers 10K Run on Sunday, June 6, 2010. They had a blast braving the muggy weather and the hills around the Airlie Conference Center to raise money for the Fauquier Free Clinic. The Fauquier Free Clinic is a non-profit health and dental care clinic serving low income, uninsured families in Fauquier and Rappahannock Counties.

Running is a sport of passion; however, running injuries can be frustrating and debilitating to the runner. Stretching, proper footwear, and cross-training are important for preventing injuries, but even with the best prevention, injuries can occur. Physical therapists are the experts for treating musculoskeletal problems that may occur with running. An individualized program developed by your physical therapist will allow you to return to running without pain.

At Fauquier Health Outpatient Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, our therapists treat not only running injuries, but all other types of orthopedic and sports related injures for all ages.
