Healthy Training

You run for physical fitness. To lose weight. To relieve stress. Or to find that runner's high. Whatever your goals, achieving them requires commitment.

Training for a race of any length can be exciting as well as intimidating. While running injuries are common, they don’t have to be. The Norton Sports Health training team is here to help you train and race safely to avoid injuries. Our team includes orthopedic physicians specializing in sports health, an athletic trainer, a nutritionist and a running coach. Should an injury occur, we provide advanced care and design customized programs to meet your specific needs. These programs incorporate strength training, core stability, flexibility and conditioning to help you achieve optimal performance and fitness. Our goal is to get you back to the activities you enjoy.

If you experience injuries or problems while training, you have access to preferential appointment services with our Norton Sports Health team. Call (502) 629-1234 and our staff will work to get you an appointment with a sports health specialist as soon as possible.
