You’re not alone
Running Injuries are extremely common- figures suggest that 50- 80% of runners become injured each year. Common problems include:
- Runners knee
- ITB syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendon pain
- Hip or back pain
- Recurrent cramps
- Calf or hamstring soreness
- Shin splints
Injuries, aches and pains can be incredibly frustrating. You might be a competitive club runner, a fitness enthusiast or a social runner. Either way being injured stops you doing the thing you love the most. The thing with running injuries is that they can be caused and contributed to by so many things. Two very similar sounding problems can be the result of completely different factors in different runners. Self-diagnosis or internet self-help is rarely reliable. If your problems are persisting or recurrent its really important to get a reliable diagnosis and have a long-term strategy, to not just resolve an issue, but to make sure it doesn’t simply come back or get replaced by a different problem.
This is where the Natural Running Clinic comes in…
