Ask Running Writings Episode 3: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

Got another video done—this one is on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve).  Even though many runners take these with the belief that these drugs will help speed their recovery from injury, the scientific literature says otherwise.  Check out the video for more! I've reworked the formatting a bit so the screen isn't quite so cluttered, so let me know what you think.

If you've got a question that you'd like answered on a future episode of Ask Running Writings, leave a comment on the video page or drop me a line at the Contact Me page!

About the Author

John J Davis, PhD

I have been coaching runners and writing about training and injuries for over ten years. I've helped total novices, NXN-qualifying high schoolers, elite-field competitors at major marathons, and runners everywhere in between. I have a Ph.D. in Human Performance, and I do scientific research focused on the biomechanics of overuse injuries in runners. I published my first book, Modern Training and Physiology for Middle and Long-Distance Runners, in 2013.
