RUNNING SPECIFIC ASSESSMENTS, REHABILITATION and TRAINING
Running injuries are often a result of overuse – applying repeated force over a prolonged period of time. Poor running mechanics, changes in training volume, speed and improper footwear can lead to more stress being placed on certain tissues within the body. This can lead to these tissues wearing down over time, resulting in injury.
Common Running Injuries
- Runner’s knee
- Patellar Tendinitis
- IT Band Syndrome
- Shin splints
- Hip Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Ankle Sprains
How Can Running Injuries be Avoided?
- Obtain a gait or running analysis by an experienced health professional to identify any existing ailments or deficiencies that may increase your risk of injury.
- Participate in a strength training program to avoid overloading your tissues and making you more susceptible to injury.
- Follow injury and treatment advice to ensure successful healing and appropriate return to running.
