Covenant Therapy Centers offers free post-race injury clinics
Covenant Therapy Centers to offer free clinics in Knox, Loudon and Sevier counties
While medical care will be provided during the 2014 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon, there are many times when the pain doesn’t register until after the adrenaline subsides. For those participants with bothersome aches, pains, blisters or other medical concerns after the race, Covenant Therapy Centers will be offering the free Post-Race Injury Clinics with physical therapists and/or athletic trainers.
