13 May Osteopathy For Running Injuries
Running is hard enough without an injury.
Let us help you take the first steps to recovery.
You press on through the pain, though it stabs you with every stride. You’re determined to continue. You want that personal best, and a little bit of pain isn’t going to get the better of you. But deep down, you know it’s not really ‘just a little bit of pain’. And it hasn’t just happened. For the last few weeks or months, you’ve noticed that niggle, and it’s getting worse.
If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. One in two runners usually reports an injury each year, with knee injuries the most common.
The good news is, a visit to an osteopath at Relinque Sports & Spinal Group can help you. When you hobble into Relinque, thinking your running days are over, we’ll have you back on your feet and pounding the streets as quickly as we can.
We don’t just treat and manage running injuries, we assess you and give advice on how to avoid the same thing happening again. We’ll treat the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. In our view, getting rid of any pain without solving the actual problem is a little bit like trying to save on electricity by turning down the sound on the television; you can’t hear it, so it must be switched off.
Our team can also assess your running technique, running shoes and training schedule alongside a specific musculoskeletal examination to identify how your injury has occurred. Our Osteopaths use techniques such as soft tissue, stretching, mobilisation, manipulation and dry needling to release tight muscles and joint restrictions.
At Relinque Sports and Spinal Group, we have a comprehensive understanding of different types of running and sports injuries. For the last 20 years, we have been engaged with sporting clubs in the local area and have supported many state and national grade junior athletes. We are also involved in the rehabilitation of Commonwealth and Olympic representatives.
