Sports Injuries and Running Injuries:
● Injuries -
The causes of running and other sports injuries typically varies between each patient. Running injuries are frequently overuse injury of the foot, lower leg, knee, and hip. Uneven running surfaces and poor shoe selection as well as weak quads and hips can contribute to common injury. In many cases, runner’s knee can be traced to the inability of the tissues surrounding the knee to recover in between runs. Overtraining, overuse, and improper or worn-out footwear can create pain in your heel, but the root of the problem lies in tight and weakened muscles in the foot. If your feet are weak, the heel takes on an excessive load and cannot handle the training you are trying to do.
