What Are Running Injuries?

Running injuriesA running injury can put you out of action for days, weeks, and even months depending on the severity of the injury. Runners are most susceptible to injuries. Usually, a change in routine is responsible for a running injury.

For instance, running longer distances, uphill running, improper footwear, and poor running techniques all increase the risk of a running injury. Running injuries affect the knees, feet, and ankles of runners. If you are a runner, you need to pay attention to the following warning signs of a running injury:

  • Pain in ankle, knee, and hip
  • Tenderness in a bone, joint, or muscle
  • Swelling, heat, and redness in lower leg or ankle and feet
  • Decreased mobility
  • Weakness (tip- place the same weight on both legs to test its ability to hold it)

It is recommended to stop running once you detect these warning signs. Instead, consult with your physiotherapist to determine the best treatment plan to resolve the running injury and assist you to safely return to your routine. Some of the common running injuries physiotherapists treat include runner’s knee, shin splints, Achilles tendinitis, IT band syndrome, and plantar fasciitis.
