Running is a popular sport that offers numerous benefits including improved fitness and cardiovascular health, personal satisfaction, and a sense of community. It’s also a high-impact activity that repeatedly applies forces to the body. Overuse injuries of the lower body are common in runners.
Some of the more common running injuries we see include:
* Hip pain
* Knee injuries, with patellar pain knee injuries being extremely common
* Runner’s knee, which is associated with over striding
* Stress fractures
* Foot conditions like overpronation, Achilles tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis
Running analysis is used to better understand a runner’s gait, cadence, foot-strike, and injury potential so that we can intervene and prevent potential running injuries. If you’ve already been injured, running analysis is an essential tool in your rehabilitation. Running analysis is also a helpful tool in improving sports performance.
