Understanding Running Injuries

Running injuries can occur for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Overtraining or increasing mileage too quickly
  • Poor running form or biomechanics
  • Wearing improper footwear
  • Muscle imbalances or weaknesses
  • Earlier injuries or structural issues

It’s important to address running injuries promptly to prevent them from becoming chronic or more serious.

Our Running Injury Assessment

At The Walking Clinic Podiatrists, we specialise in running injury assessments. Our podiatrists will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your:

  • Running history: We’ll discuss your training routine, previous injuries, and any current symptoms.
  • Biomechanics: We’ll assess your gait, foot and ankle structure, and overall running form to identify any issues.
  • Footwear: We’ll evaluate your running shoes to ensure they provide the proper support and fit for your feet.
  • Strength and flexibility: We’ll examine your lower body strength and flexibility to identify any muscle imbalances or weaknesses that may contribute to injuries.

Treatment and Prevention

Based on our assessment, we’ll develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This may include:

  • Orthotic therapy: Custom orthotics can provide support and correct biomechanical issues.
  • Exercise therapy: Specific exercises can help strengthen weak muscles and improve flexibility.
  • Footwear recommendations: Proper running shoes are crucial for injury prevention.
  • Running form adjustments: Our podiatrists can provide guidance on improving your running technique.
