Prevent Common Running Injuries with Just a Little Work

Prevent Common Running Injuries with Just a Little Work

 

Los Angeles, CA – 05/30/2013—The scenario isusually the same. A new runner begins a training program. A month or two later,a slight pain in the knee comes on. The runner stretches, takes some ibuprofen andkeeps on running. Soon after, the runner is resting, with an ice pack on theknee. Studies suggest that as little as 20% or as many as 80% of runners aresidelined yearly. Some more than once and some for good.

 

There is good news though. Researchers are on amission to find an injury solution. Many claim the problem behind the highinjury rate in the sport is modern running shoes. Or is it because people tendto sit a lot more, or is it due to training mistakes? Running the same route,on the same side of the road, or taking big jumps in distance?

 

The truth, experts say, is all of the above.Injury, and injury prevention are is not just caused or solved by one thing. Acombination of things can lead to injury and it can take more than one thing tohelp resolve what is causing that injury.

 

Experts agree to lower injury risk a personneeds a strong body, good form and the right shoe.
