Running Injuries: Navigating Towards a Swift Recovery

What Causes Running Injuries?

Running, a repetitive impact activity, places significant load on the body. The ability of your muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons to manage this load, combined with factors like training intensity, terrain, and individual strength, often determines the risk of injury. Pain experienced during running is typically a warning sign indicating an overload or imbalance in the body.

Symptoms of Running Injuries You May Be Experiencing

Common symptoms include pain, discomfort, or niggles in various parts of the body. These signs are the body’s way of signalling that something needs attention, similar to feelings of thirst or hunger.
