Vikash and Kathryn talk about the future of physical therapy, and how rehab can be blended with movement and exercise. They discuss running, and how people can begin to prepare their bodies through progressive loading and, you guessed it, strength training. Vikash gives some great examples of how lifting heavy can help tissues adapt to the higher forces that are felt during movements like running. This is a conversation about tissue adaptation, enjoying exercise, mobility, and building a strong foundation.
