Prevent Injuries, Optimize Technique, Maximize Fitness with the Pose Method®
When the body is moving properly, with all systems operating in the correct alignment and in unison, there should be no injuries.
– Dr. Nicholas Romanov
Everyone says exercise is medicine and running has many health benefits, but everyone also knows how damaging exercising and running can be to a human body. There are entire industries built around injuries.
So is running bad for you then? No. Running badly is. Exercising badly is. Moving badly is.
Human body, mind and spirit are our most precious resources. Musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries have a ripple effect on our mental health and morale. Learning how to move correctly (technique) and developing this skill is the most direct way to prevent and reduce MSK injuries. Let’s protect our most valuable resources and strive for holistic wellness.
Most runners believe getting injured is an unavoidable part of the sport and if you push yourself too hard you will eventually get hurt. But that’s not true. An injury is an alarm that’s going off, “Hey, you’re doing something wrong.” And that’s how you should approach it.
When you get injured, you can always trace it back to a flaw in your running technique, to the way you move.
“The Pose Method has the potential to be used as a standard by which running performances can be evaluated, coached and enhanced. In twenty-five years of working with running athletes, I have yet to find a more meaningful resource.”
“The Pose Method of running has not only eliminated my injuries, it has been an integral part of continued improvement in my chosen sport. In fact at fifty-two years of age I’m still improving. A bonus of the Pose Method for me has been significant health and strength improvement.”
“To tens of thousands of runners, including me, Nicholas Romanov walks (and runs) on water. Approaching running as a skill to be learned, his groundbreaking, much-copied Pose Method established a new paradigm, promoting a soft, natural landing that minimizes impact, maximizes speed, eliminates injuries, and saves running careers. No one thought about form until Romanov came along; now we know that it is crucial. I’ve interviewed dozens of runners who simply would not be running without it.”
“I attended the Pose Method Course with Dr. Romanov in Miami and it was a phenomenal experience. I honestly don’t know how any human being could have covered as much information and simplified in a way that made it all digestible. It is a simple concept but with many nuances that make it difficult to explain and they did a great job.
The whole thing was fantastic. I would recommend to anyone that wants to learn more about running from the weekend runner to the physical therapist”.
