Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 24, 2004

The Koala Health & Wellness Centers will sponsor the HP Houston MarathonÂ’s Health and Fitness Expo.

The Koala Health and Wellness Centers Health & Fitness Expo will be held January 14 and 15, 2005, at the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida de las Americas, Houston, Texas 77010, (the location for late registration and race packet pick-up.) This is the 19th year for the two-day health and fitness event, which is expected to attract more than 35,000.

The HP Houston Marathon is HoustonÂ’s largest single-day sporting event. Combined with the Aramco Houston Half Marathon and Houston Press 5K, more than 15,000 participants, 200,000 spectators and 5,000 volunteers will take to the streets of Houston on Sunday, January 16, 2005.

Houston-based Koala Heath and Wellness Centers, founded in 1994 by Dr. Ed Kieke and Dr. Mary Doyle to provide integrated chiropractic medicine, has been described as a runner's “dream clinic.” “Runner’s have become such a central part of our practice, so taking part in marathon weekend is a great opportunity for us,” says Dr. Kieke.

“Because we care for so many runners, we actually developed a Runner’s Protocol Test to help determine body imbalances and/or improper muscle integration and pinpoint abnormalities that cause or lead to injuries. The results of the precise diagnostic evaluation enable their doctors to determine the best course of action for enabling patients to perform to their greatest potential” adds Dr. Kieke.

Koala’s integrative approach to sports medicine utilizes a combination of therapies, such as muscle testing, rehabilitation exercise, nutritional counseling and weight conditioning to create personalized wellness programs for their patients—many of them runner’s, amateur athletes and professional athletes.

KoalaÂ’s Health and Fitness Expo offers numerous health, fitness and running related seminars throughout the weekend. It also features a variety of exhibitors providing a wealth of information, and displaying and selling the latest in health and fitness products and services. There are also numerous health and running related seminars.
