Can Physiotherapy help with my running pain?
With the summer well underway, we begin seeing more and more running related injuries through our clinic doors.
Anytime runners change their running surface, distance, shoes, or environment, injuries tend to occur. Hip, knee, achilles, and foot pain become frequent symptoms that can quickly put a damper on the summer running and race season.
Pain while running indicates that either an injury is forming or there is a minor technique issue with your running.
If you are beginning to feel any pain either during or after running, you are at risk for developing an overuse injury to your leg muscles, achilles tendon, or plantar fasciitis. If not addressed quickly, these injuries can develop into long term injuries that require more than just a few weeks of rehab.
If you are experiencing any pain with your running, we recommend visiting one of our Physical Therapists at MOMENTUM. Here we will evaluate your symptoms and create an action plan to prevent your pain from turning into a season long running injury. Don't delay, call MOMENTUM Physical Therapy, located here in Okotoks, today. 403-982-5600
