Typical Running Injuries

Have you got a persistent injury? Common treatments such as Sports Medicine, Rest, Ice, New footwear, Physiotherapy, Arch Supports, Stretching, Cortisone, Shock-Wave therapy require multiple visits.

If an injury persists over time there has to be a cause. Typical recurrent Injuries are:

  • Knee Pain
  • Calf Pain
  • Shin Splints / Shin Pain
  • Achilles Pain
  • Ankle Pain
  • Heel Pain
  • Sever's
  • Forefoot / Toe Pain
  • ITB Strain
  • Hip Pain

Many of these injuries are now clearly linked to poor foot function.

The Running Clinic has over 25 years of collective experience treating running and walking injuries.

Many recurrent upper skeletal injuries have a source in the structural dysfunction of the feet. Clinic data from 30,000 plus patients shows this can be due to the misalignment of the Calcaneous (heel bone) during gait. This is clinically proven to be a prime factor in the structural efficiency foot function.

Based on substantial evidence the Clinic no longer prescribes standard arch based orthotics for corrective requirements.
