http://pennstatehershey.org/web/bonea... : : Penn State Hershey Bone and Joint Institute - State College, home to Penn State Sports Medicine. Endurance athletes like those who competed in the Boston Marathon earlier this month face a paradox—they're going farther and faster, they're feeling stronger, but their bones are getting weaker. New, compelling evidence shows that the very activities that expand our mental and physical abilities may be reducing the durability of our skeletons. In their book, Thomas Whipple, a physical therapist with Penn State Hershey Bone and Joint Institute, and Robert Eckhardt, a Penn State scientist specializing in the musculoskeletal system, team up to explain how athletes at any level can maintain the delicate balance between endurance exercise and optimum bone health over a lifetime. Translating important scientific advances into accessible language, they explain the muscle-bone connection, and cover training strategies and exercises, nutrition, calcium, stress fractures, rehabilitation, running mechanics, footwear, posture, and pharmaceuticals. In this video, Tom Whipple talks about the book, The Endurance Paradox: Bone Health for the Endurance Athlete and what we're learning about keeping endurance athletes healthy enough for the activities they love.
