Runners’ Injury Clinics

Because injuries may occur during training, Norton Sports Health provides a Runners’ Injury Clinic that is available twice monthly during the  Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon and Marathon training season.

A sports medicine physician, an athletic trainer or physical therapist, and support staff will be on hand to help diagnose and treat your injury. We highly recommend making an appointment to be certain we are able to see you.

Get the Care You Need to Stay Running

Through the Norton Sports Health team approach to treatment, patients have access to a variety of care and support. Patients can expect to work with various professionals throughout their treatment journey, including athletic trainers, physical therapists, and nutritionists.
