Learn how natural medicine can help prevent and treat sports injuries

Whether you’re training for the Seattle Marathon or just want to be able-bodied enough to take brisk walks around your neighborhood, avoiding injuries is key to keeping you in top physical shape. Athletes at all levels often stretch or warm-up before physical activity, but there are many other ways you can help prevent sports injuries.

You are invited to learn some of these tips at the free talk "Preventing Sports Injuries with Natural Medicine" from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 19, at Bastyr Center for Natural Health. Hear how the Seattle clinic’s physical medicine department can help improve your performance and well-being from clinical supervisor Calvin Kwan, ND, who has a deep-seated passion for naturopathic manipulation, sports medicine, diet and lifestyle coaching.

Learn how some of the following treatments can be beneficial to prevent and also to treat sports injuries:

  • Soft-tissue manipulation
  • Muscle-stretching
  • hydrotherapy
  • Peat baths
  • Manipulation of the spine and extremities
  • Ultrasound
