Runner Physio

How can Physiotherapy help running injuries?

Most running injuries often result from poor training schedules, improper loading progressions (you may have increased mileage too quickly or took too much time off) which can overload soft tissue structures and cause injury. Other causes include stiffness in joints and weakness in muscles or old injuries not being adequately rehabilitated and then they return.

We are experts at diagnosing your condition through appropriate assessments, including a detailed investigation into the history of your injury, running biomechanics, current training regime and special objective tests looking at the joint range and measuring your strength with the latest technology. Once a diagnosis has been established, we will discuss this with you and develop a management strategy together. Following this, a tailor-made exercise and treatment program can be designed to optimise rehabilitation and get you back on a speedy road to recovery.

Common Running Injuries that we see:

R

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome: pain around the kneecap

R

Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (Shin Splints): pain around the shin bone

Iliotibial Band (ITB) Syndrome/ runners knee : pain/stiffness around the outside of the knee.

R

Gluteal Tendinopathy: pain/stiffness on your hip bone.

R

Stress Fractures: repetitive force/overuse leading to tiny cracks in bones.

R

Achilles Tendinopathy: pain in/around the tendon on and above the heel

R

Plantar Fasciopathy: pain under your heel and/or around the sole of the foot

R

Muscle Injuries: commonly found in the hamstring and calf muscles- muscle strains Grade 1-3

R

Ankle Sprains: swelling around the ankle due to a stretching of the ligaments around the ankle

Your Treatment

Treatment strategies such as deep tissue massage therapy, shockwave therapy, dry needling, and joint mobilisations can also be utilised if required.

Our Physio’s are highly experienced, and running injuries are some of our most common conditions we treat, So if you have a running related pain, it is important to get your injury checked as the longer it goes on the worse it can get and the harder it can be to treat.
