Grand Junction sports medicine physician quoted in magazine story

Dr. Richard Price, a sports medicine physician with Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates in Grand Junction, is quoted in a story about common running injuries that appears in the March edition of Runners World magazine.

In the story, headlined “The Big Seven Body Breakdowns,” Price discusses such injuries as Achilles tendinitis, hamstring issues, shinsplints, iliotibial band syndrome and stress fractures. According to Price, how a runner reacts to the first stab of pain determines whether or not they’ll take a little time off now or a lot of time off later.

Price holds board certification in family medicine with a certificate of added qualification in sports medicine. He’s interested in injury prevention, maximizing athletic performance and performance testing. Price has worked with athletes of all levels and also managed a human performance laboratory.
