Runner safety clinics
Better safe-than-sorry is a great motto – one that Gazelle Sports, 99 W. Maple Road in downtown Birmingham, is espousing with free Injury Wise Clinics, an in-store opportunity for individuals to consult one-on-one with a sports medicine professional to address any injury concerns. From torn muscles to sprained ankles to shin splints, when dealing with the discomfort and inconvenience of a minor injury, fitness enthusiasts have questions and want answers, without the challenges of securing a doctor’s appointment. Held periodically, their next Injury Wise Clinic is Tuesday, November 6, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or a fitness novice, injuries happen. Free 10-minute appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and there is no advance registration required.
