Do you love to run? Has an injury or nagging pain kept you from running consistently or hitting the times you wanted? Do you want to be a more efficient runner?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Research shows approximately 75% of runners will suffer an injury that will keep them off the road in any given year! Injuries can lead to loss of fitness, mounting frustration and a decline in passion. Running has been a significant part of my life for over 15 years and I have suffered my fair share of injuries both collegiately and leisurely along the way. My issues ranged from mismanagement of training load, musculoskeletal asymmetries, biomechanics, and experience. These injuries and constant frustrations in interrupted training led me to becoming a Physical Therapist. I wanted to gain more knowledge so I can not only keep me injury free, but help others not experience the same struggles I have in my training. This is why I have started writing blogs (Blue Rose Blogs)- to provide opportunities to whoever wishes to be proactive in their health and seeks expertise information.
A Little About Me
My name is Logan Dockery and I have extensive experience in orthopedic injuries, injury prevention, balance and fall prevention, neurological rehabilitation, Sports Medicine, and Advanced gait/running analysis. I have several certifications/specialties including Dry Needling, Blood Flow Restriction (BFR), and Advanced gait analysis. I earned my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree in 2014 and earned my PhD in Physical Therapy in 2019 with my Dissertation and publishable work in Gait Biomechanics. I have been blessed to have opportunities to present at Local and National Conferences, as well as lecturing and teaching at various Universities as an expert in Physical Therapy, movement, gait and running analysis.
I competed in junior high, high school and collegiately in Track and Field and Cross Country, as well as worked as a Graduate Assistant Coach for UCA while earning my Doctorate. Because of running, I was given the opportunity to attend college, receive an education, met countless amazing people, and all experiences that started with running has led me to this wonderful opportunity to help other runners become stronger, healthier, and happier! I have worked alongside and treated elite runners, as well as conducting Advanced Gait Running Analysis to decrease incidence of injury and optimize efficiency.
