Running is becoming an increasingly popular activity, as it is a great way to exercise, makes people feel good and has a significant social aspect to it as well. The downside of running is that it can put a significant strain on the body, especially if someone pushes themselves too hard (overtraining), poor running technique or inadequate equipment (footwear). Some of the common running injuries include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • IT Band syndrome
  • Runner’s knee
  • Shin Splints
