How Physical Therapy for Runners Injuries Makes a Difference

If you’re a runner, chances are you’ve had some sort of lingering injury that has kept you off the road. Most runners have experienced some type of injury at one point or another in their running career. In fact, it is estimated that 80% of all runners will sustain a running injury at some point in their life.

You love running. You love the way it makes you feel, and the way it helps you stay fit and healthy. But sometimes, even when we do everything right, we can get injured. Many runners develop injuries because of the repetitive nature of their training and the way they run. Runners often have muscle imbalances, which are problems with the strength or flexibility of muscles. When this happens, it’s time to reach out for help. And that’s where a Physical Therapist comes in.

The reasons for these injuries are diverse; however, they can be attributed to training errors, biomechanical factors through a running gait analysis and muscle imbalances. A physical therapist can help you identify these factors and address them during your recovery from injury so that you can get back on the road faster.

Physical therapists can help you return to running by teaching you how to strengthen injured areas and improve flexibility in other areas. A Physical Therapist can also work with you on specific exercises and stretches to strengthen injured muscles and improve flexibility in tight areas of your body. This will help ensure that your body is able to withstand the impact of running without breaking down again in the future!
