She is a regular writer for philly.com sports doc blog, examiner.com and axs.com. She has been published in Advance magazine for physical therapy.

Instead of taking two weeks off, begin with an active treatment approach and keep yourself running. Dr. Moore has treated thousands of runners and shows some of the basic steps to be taken at home when you are feeling pain when running. Specific injuries are also discussed such as IT band tendinitis, groin pull, hamstring strain and many more. For less than the cost of a copay you can starting running better, not less.
