Unfortunately the gyms are still closed and with such nice weather many of you have been exercising outdoors. We are currently seeing a lot of people with running injuries.

  • You’ve started a couch to 5k programme?
  • You normally go to the gym but as they are closed you started running along the Thames…
  • You increased your normal running routine from 3 times a week to 5 or 6?

But…

  • Now your knee is sore walking down stairs or down hill…
  • Your knee or your ankle is stiff and sore first thing in the morning…
  • You can’t train at your desired level or have had to stop running all together?

We are hearing this story everyday at the moment so I though I would share some videos about the 6 most common running injuries you may be suffering from and what you can do about them…

The most common running injury is patello-femoral pain or pain around the kneecap.

The next most common running injury to affect the knee is IT band syndrome, pain on the outer side of the knee.

Stay tuned as I will share some more running injury videos in the next few weeks…

If you are suffering from a running injury then we can help with a sports physiotherapy appointment. To book an appointment simply call 0203 322 9455 or book online at www.wandsworthphysiotherapy.co.uk

As a special offer for you we can book you in for a Run Fit screening appointment and also bolt on your first therapy session for a discounted price. This would be an hour (30 mins Run Fit screening + 30 mins treatment) for £75 instead of £100.

Simply click here to book – go to the Sports Injury Clinic drop down menu and you’ll see “Run Fit + Treatment”. This is a time limited offer until the 12th July and we still have limited space due to social distancing and infection control measures that are in place, so book now to avoid missing out…
