What running mistakes lead to injury?

Pierre d'Hemecourt | Publications

I was raised to treat others as I would like to be treated, and I try to bring that philosophy to every patient encounter. I have wanted to care for people as a physician since I was a young child. My interests are varied. I love to run as I have been doing this most days of the week for 43 years. I have remained very active in running and exercise as an adult and this has been my major drive in philosophy of care. Exercise is a critical component to most patient interventions. Other endurance events such as triathlons are also of great interest. Collegiate and high school sports and artistic sports of dance, figure skating and gymnastics remain strong areas of attention. Art is another passion. Museums of the world are my constant goal to visit.
