If, like us, you’re into your running, getting an injury can seem like the worst possible news. That’s why getting the correct running injury treatment for you is important. Most running injuries we treat are not serious and don’t require any long periods of time off. In-fact, depending on the injury, there is still a considerable amount of training you can do.
Let’s take a look a some of the most common injuries and the treatment you may need.
Common running injuries:
Symptoms: Pain in and around the kneecap, rubbing, clicking or grinding of the kneecap or if the kneecap is tender to touch.
Symptoms: Pain at the back of your leg or heel, stiffness in the tendon, swelling sat the back of your ankle or tenderness when touching your heel.
Symptoms: Bruising of the thigh, pain the back of your thigh or lower buttock, a snapping or popping feeling when exercising.
Symptoms: A sharp pain in the bottom of your foot, commonly in the morning when your first start walking, or any pain in the arch of your foot during exercise.
