Physio for Common Running Injuries

Have you just completed the SMH Half Marathon and looking for your next event?  Or are you inspired to join the 80,000 runners in the City to Surf or the Blackmores Running Festival later in the year?

Unfortunately when training for long distance events aches and pains can creep up on your body and stop you from performing at your best.  The good news is that a there is a lot you can do to prevent them but if they do appear they are treatable.

Running injuries are commonly caused by a sudden increase in training, incorrect footwear, poor biomechanics, weak muscles (quads and gluts) and tight muscles (calves, hamstrings and ITB).

Treatment is important to prevent the injury occurring or getting worse.  It consists of addressing your biomechanics (technique correction), rebalancing your muscles (massaging tight muscles and strengthening the weak ones) and following a gradual increased training program.

Common Running Injuries include:

  • Knee Pain
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • ITB syndrome
  • Muscle strains and tears

If you’re keen to get running and don’t want to be limited by injury give us a call 0280656902.
